HELLO!!!

For anyone who still checks this blog...the Gunn family is alive and well in Rochester, Minnesota!  The past month has been eventful (the next post will be a re-cap) but we are trying to settle down to normal life in our new home.  That is if we ever finish unpacking!  So far, we love Rochester.  We also love being in our own home - although I will admit home ownership is MUCH more stressful than renting (big surprise, huh).

The move has been a bit of an adjustment for the kids - they are alternately bouncing off the walls excited or heartbroken and in tears about it.  We all miss our friends in Cleveland.  But overall, they're doing better everyday.  

Yesterday was hilarious - it was day 3 in our new home and new city and we enjoyed a lovely picnic in our backyard that afternoon.
Less than 2 hours later this is what it looked like outside


Welcome to Minnesota!!!  That was the worst hail storm - make that the worst any kind of storm I've ever personally witnessed.  I couldn't stop laughing, it was just the craziest thing.  At noon it was 78 degress and sunny - at 2pm, in a matter of minutes it was dark and cold with rain, thunder, lightning, and ENORMOUS hail coming down like you wouldn't believe.  The pictures really don't do it justice.

So, with that being said, we would love to have visitors...now don't all raise your hands at once :)

Love and miss you all - keep in touch!

So glad you made it to your new home! It took Cooper a few months to adjust too. I think we will always miss Cleveland. That hail is crazy!

We were just thinking of you guys and wondering how you were doing and thinking about moving and how it just stinks to move. But its fun to have a new place and check out new towns. Glad you survived the hail storm.
Fun that you read Plain truth I wish I could talk more with you about it.

Summer, come back! I was soo bored in sunday school on sunday that I didn't even mind when Brenna's nursery teachers brought her to me TWICE for hitting other kids!
I'm glad you're liking it and I can't wait to hear more, Bren makes fun of me because I said that I want to move to a place like Rochester because everything I've heard about it is everything I want in a future home. He thinks it's just so we can chat in the halls together during church...that too! We miss you guys!
