Corpus Christi, Texas

By Marcia Mickelson

Sorry for not posting last week. Last weekend we moved 2.5 hours away from San Antonio to Corpus Christi. One week later, we're almost all moved in and getting caught up.

Our boys were excited to ride in the big moving truck with Daddy all the way to the new house.

We spent the week cleaning, getting situated, and exploring our new town. Thank goodness for the GPS we bought Dad for Father's Day. Also, my 8 year old has been studying the Corpus Christi map for months now, so he already knows his way around and has been a great help for me.

Here is a picture of one of the beaches in Corpus Christi. One night we went downtown to a beach and walked around the sidewalk and down to the sand. Our kids loved it. We didn't get in the water, just walked around. We stayed out until past nine o'clock and it was so nice to see many families walking, pushing strollers, riding bikes, and roller skating along the beach's sidewalk. We're hoping to get to another beach this week to go swimming and build sand castles. We're excited about our new town and hope to be all settled soon.

Oh good! You're still in Texas! :) I've heard CC is really nice. We really DO have to get together in Texas sometime.

Yes, let's get together. Come check out the beach. Or, I need to come to Houston one of these days. Maybe I need to set up a book signing once things calm down here and we get settled.

It's always nice to get settled, and so close to the beach! Is that a little bit of envy I'm feeling?
