So much to tell. so much to show. Callan and I are 24 hours out of our four day road trip to Ohio, and we're definitely enjoying a break. We've got lots of pictures, (mostly of Callan playing in the car or standing outside a hotel), and lots of stories (mostly about funny signs we saw on the road, and scary bathrooms we used at truck stops). But first, for Melissa, who won't be here until Tuesday, we've posted these videos of our new apartment. Its small compared to our home in Provo, but I think it will be just right for our little family.
The apartment is one of 70 or so graduate student apartments right on campus and the colonial architecture more than makes up for the somewhat cramped living space. I just keep thinking, "This would be a castle in Japan." The entire apartment is floored in linoleum and has a coat of beige paint from floor to ceiling. IKEA would be so disappointed. Oh well. Maybe we'll paint one wall.
The bathroom looks really small, but its not as crowded as I thought it would be. And there's a medicine cabinet, which is more than we hoped for. The playground sits just outside our back window and its completely fenced off, so Callan can play back there in relative security.
