We made it to Carrigtwohill in time for Christmas! Jessica’s mom came from America for a week to help with the move, and lots of able bodied men from the Midleton and Youghal churches did the heavy lifting. We’ve got our Christmas tree up, our furniture in the right places, some of the walls painted and (thanks to Jessica) lots of boxes unpacked. Still a ways to go before we are fully settled in, but it’s feeling more like home every day, and we like that.
