So....we moved! This is been in the works for a while now. We decided that we wanted to downsize so that I can be home more with the children, work part-time, and put family first. We are super excited about our new place. We feel like we "made out like bandits" (as Neil says) with our new home.
|We sold our house in less than a month to some people that we know from Bennett's old school. It was a long, back-and-forth process, but we finally closed.|
|Living in the house after the movers came means eating dinner on the window sill and sitting on the floor.|
Welcome to our new home! We are calling it Lewis Hideaway because it a little house tucked back on 2 acres in the middle of a neighborhood. I love pulling down the tree-lined, private driveway. We like when people say things like "I saw it but didn't think I could go down the driveway." Anyway, we are just thrilled that the kids will grow up with room to roam. Yes, we have a smaller house, but we are learning to live more efficiently. I realized I don't need five 9x13 casserole dishes.
|We will be painting this house soon. Can't wait!|
Here's our backyard. This tree is our favorite.

|All of our boxes in the garage waiting to be unpacked. It is dwindling by the day. :(|
|We had the fireplace painted day 1.|
|We painted our room "sterling."|
|Leslie helped me pick out a paint color for Sarah Kathryn's room...grape mist. Neil said he wanted to do her room in purple and not pink. Look at him with that opinion!|
