Jake starts work today. Well, he started work last week at an orientation in San Francisco area for the whole week. The girls and I were gone on a vacation with my family, so it feels like today is the real start day.
At his orientation, snacks were provided. There was, among many other things, oysters on the half shell. Pretty much employees at Google, Googlers as the call themselves or in Jake's case, Nooglers (because he is new) are treated very well.
Here is our new home on move in day. We worked hard for 5 days and got mostly unpacked so life could return to normalcy once we got home from our week-long destinations. All that is left to unpack is most of the office/guest room and 4 random boxes. That is pretty good for 5 days, I'd say. Of course the organization of things may change in the kitchen or bathrooms as we go on. But I considered ourselves settled enough we can get on with routine.
I haven't taken any pictures since we unpacked. I still have some finishing touches to do, so I am holding off until rooms are good looking. Just because most everything is unpacked and put away, doesn't mean it looks good.

Norah loves the rainbows the stained glass makes in the afternoon.
Helen thinks it is a princess window.

And now we start our new adventure, making this place feel like home, and creating life memories.
