We're Still Here

We're back in Colorado, finally! In a desperate bid to escape Phoenix, we moved to Colorado in the middle of winter, and boy what an introduction we got. Temperatures in the -10 degree range. We don't have internet at our new place yet, it's been difficult to find a provider way out in the country, so the blog may be quiet for a bit. We will post pictures when we get internet.
Our new place is about 18 miles outside of the Durango, just north of Breen. We'll be able to have chickens and a large garden!
Logan got a great job (within a day!) working at a dealership and is really happy.
Kade is loving his new school, it's a small school, and very personal. He has a great teacher and new friends. He gets to take the bus right from the top of the driveway, and has friends right across the road. He seems to be settling in to the new routine quite well.
More to come.....

"Get out of bed!!! Honey, Get out of bed!!!!"
It's about 10 pm and I wake to Logan's panicked hollers. I slowly role out of bed.
"There's something in the bed! I swear! There is something in the bed! It crawled up my side, it's 'this big! No seriously!"
We begin to look, and as the search continues, I begin to doubt the validity of the claim. Finally, I lift a pillow off the floor and see something large scuttle away. I'm awake now, but the bug is gone.
We begin searching anew. Finally, I look at the curtains and scream like a little girl.....

 This dude is about 4.5 inches across.
Luckily Logan is not as big of a wimp as I am, and did not stand in the doorway whimpering with me. Logan managed to get him into the biggest pot we could find. Turns out it's what's known as a "ground spider" here. As far as we can tell it's the same thing as a cane spider. They're scary looking, but completely harmless.

Anyway, after a night of sleeplessness and creepy crawlies, we got up and went to George Town for another look around. Then we headed to the beach for some snorkling fun. Not that many fish, a couple of needle fish and a turtle. The water was a bit cold :p, but we really can't complain. We begin the long journey home tomorrow.
