Our House

Ever since school got out we have been in overdrive. My mom came to visit the day after my last day of school and let me just say that there were clean dishes in the dishwasher, clothes in the washer and dryer, and the house was a mess. The end of the school year is so busy but now it is over! It was a great last day of school but the kids were SO hyper. Next year I will remember the chaos and will not do a camping day without desks in the room. Also, having parents randomly send in treats all throughout the day didn't help. Really, a 2nd grader does not need multiple donuts, drinks, pizza, etc. in one day. They were out of control.

We have been moving our little things to the new house and the big move is this Saturday. Then on Sunday James has a century bike ride. It is nothing but crazy busy here. We also have some work to do on the house, especially the yard. The previous owners were so considerate that they trimmed ALL of the rose bushes and left the stems everywhere. Ouch!! We are also going to do some painting, or should I say that James is going to do some painting.

Here are some pictures of our house just a few days after closing:
oops..didn't take one when the garage wasn't open.

Love the new house Melissa! I should send TJ out there to help you move, he's good at that stuff! LOL It looks like you have a lot of good interior colors. Are you going to use some of the same colors you had at the old house?

I'm so envious that you're finished with school! We have two more days--I'm sure I'm looking at the same kind of chaos on Tuesday.

The new house is beautiful! I know you guys are so ready to get settled in. Can't wait for more pictures! :-)
