I don't have any pictures on the subject to share, so I thought I would post a few from the picnic we had the other day.

There are some big changes coming down the road for the Nerdy family. Husband has been reassigned, and we are preparing to move this summer! Though we did not get the assignment we wanted, we are happy to leave the DC area. And the best part is that we will still be in the state of Virginia, close to our families and support networks. Oh, did I mention we will be living about 20 minutes away (by bicycle) from the beach?!

We have agreed to lease a house, a real, honest-to-goodness, single family home in a quiet neighborhood near Husband's new duty station. It is quite small, only about 200sq feet larger than our apartment. However, there is a single-car garage that we plan to make a playroom for the boys, and the amount of outdoor space doubles our overall living space. There is no HOA, so I am looking forward to buying The Best Umbrella Clothesline for the fenced-in backyard. And the front flower beds are sunny but empty! Can you say tomatoes? Oh man. I am geeking out about tomato plants and clotheslines and bicycles.

The neighborhood is so quiet. Not a volunteer fire station, major highway, or train station in sight. (Yes, right now we live near one of each of those. The fire station is just one block up and one block over.) We are working out the details now, but we are trying to move June 1st. The sooner the better, to my mind. So we will be eating down the freezer for the next few months. The logistics of moving 80lbs of frozen chicken are just too much for me. By the time we get down there we'll be growing pinfeathers!
If anyone has any information on where I can get grassfed beef and raw dairy in the Virginia Beach area, please email me. nerdymomma at gmail dot com
