after participating in the March of Dimes Walk America event this morning, we picked up our new house keys! We've got the apartment mostly packed up, and tomorrow we collect Matt from the airport, the moving truck from the rental place, a couple of Eric's co-workers, Amy and Andrew, and we load up the truck. Then a pizza dinner, drive over to the house, and check it out. We drove by it again this morning -- the Japanese maple in the backyard has leafed out beautifully. I look forward to many lazy summer weekends under its canopy.
