The Big Move Part 2

Well, I guess we can say that we have "settled in". Although - there is so much more to do. I am finally realizing that it will take us at least til Christmas to accomplish what I had originally figured would take us a month. That's right folks, I am extremely optimistic about what one (like myself) can accomplish. I am continually learning the lesson that I have limitations, and my family should always have to be dragged into my insane conquests. So, I am activating the skills of planning, resting, waiting, strategizing, doing things one step at a time, etc., all of which are very unnatural for me.

Last weekend we finally got our sprinkler system installed...Yay! Now we have to transplant and till the rest of the yard which will prepare it for sod. Hopefully we will do the sod this weekend ...HALLELUJAH!!! I can't tell you what a pain it is to have a dirt backyard. The boys love it!

I have begun painting the kitchen cabinets. Ug! After making a huge mistake which cost me a day and a half, I'm taking a small break. Thankfully, I am only doing one section at a time.

So much to do, so little time (and energy). But, we love our new home and can't imagine being back on Lewis Ln already. God is SOOOOOOO GOOD!

The Big Move Part 1

Our last meal on Lewis Lane.


Moving Day! Boys ate powdered donuts on the counter. So fun!

Maybe the most special room in the house. Ben and bro Jon built these shelves together and then when the Sy was on his way, Ben and I designed and painted this room together. Still love it! Brought my sweet baby boys home to this room....I could go on but....on to the next!

The first load: Ben and my wonderful Dad!

Ta Daaaa! Our new home sweet home.
