Home again, home again, jiggety, jig! or We brought home everything INCLUDING the kitchen sink...

Well, we are home! We had a very busy week. We left Monday morning at 2 a.m. and arrived in Edmonton later that day. Tuesday we were glad to be able to have a visit with the Hills and to meet the girls they adopted from Ethiopia. We had a wonderful time. Hendrik had his dental appointment and surgery on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. Everything went off without a hitch and the dentist didn't have to do quite as much as he initially thought. Hendrik came out of the anesthetic beautifully and wasn't sick at all. We spent the rest of Wednesday at Ikea, Home Depot, and The Brick shopping for the new house. We now have everything we need except for our propane kitchen stove which we will order from Sears. Thursday we did a few more errands around the city to Fabricland, Lee Valley Tools, picked up some Argo and truck parts for friends and then headed for Athabasca in the afternoon to pick up a gravel truck for a friend. It wasn't quite ready so we stayed overnight and picked it up the next morning. (Hendrik got to ride back with Dwayne in the rig. You can imagine how exciting that was for him.) After we picked up the truck it was off to UFA to get a water tank, cinder blocks, fence posts and work gloves. We stayed overnight in High Level and then came the rest of the way home on Saturday afternoon. We are busy unpacking, assembling Ikea furniture and trying to get rid of the colds we picked up in Edmonton. The kids were amazing little travellers and shoppers. Troopers!
