For those wondering what's up and where we're at -
We closed on our condo last Friday (after a long, tiring week)!

We kicked-off our period of nomad-dom at my parent's house in the peaceful, quiet country (a much-needed respite following the week of packing).

Rye returned to Chicago via train on Monday while Elynor & I continued to enjoy parent/grandparent spoildom (and I took care of several new home decisions) down in Greenville (see pics of Elynor, below).

Elynor & I trek back to Chicago tomorrow (pray for me, as she's not the best car rider) to reconnect w/ Rye and move into nomad home #2 (is it a bad sign that I'm already tired of packing up suitcases?).
Over the next several weeks I'll do my best to continue to post updates, but as we jump from home to home our internet access may be spotty, so please don't worry if you don't hear from me for a little while.

"The corn is as high as an elephant's eye..." sings Elynor as she peers at the fields through the back windows.

"I think I can, I think I can..." chants Elynor as she positions herself to lift the dining room table.

"Where's Elynor? Where's Elynor?" calls Mama as she tries to find her hiding behind a dining room chair.

After eating Grandma's good cookin' for nearly 2 weeks, Elynor decides she needs to do some laps.

I can't imagine living out of suitcases! I am not a good traveler, so it would be difficult for me to do what you guys are doing. I hope it goes well (and fast). It sounds like your house will be worth the work and wait!

thanks for the encouragement! i had a mini melt-down 2day, so i'm not sure how good i am at it either. :) but yes, i'm confident it will all be worth it in the end!

Thanks for the update and the photos. This video clip is precious - seeing her peek back to make sure you're following! I'm glad that grandma's was the first stop on your nomad trail. Hopefully, you were filled up and rested when you left... Just remember, this too shall pass!
