Settling in - Fall 2016

*These are plants from our front yard.

We spent the fall in McAllen:
unpackingstarting homeschoolexploring the neighborhood finding parkstaking in the deliciously different food optionsswimming - every day at the neighborhood poolvisiting South Padre, at least once a monthfinding a churchmeeting Kyle's colleagues, and overall just getting accustomed to a new place.  

You might think that since we are still in Texas that it can't be that different.  But it is, a lot different.  The climate- hotter. The food- very mexican (not tex-mex). The language- very spanish (and some english).  The native plants and animals/birds- very beautiful and tropical.
