We got the house we wanted. Yes, on Avram's birthday (yesterday) we found out we got the house, and then our day became a flurry of deposits and contracts, keys and paperwork. But we have it now, which is super exciting to me. Now we can finally move, and unpack, and settle down. All except one small detail - Avram got sick yesterday, and now is lying in bed. So....no moving today. Compared to not having a home to move into at all, a state of life we were in two days ago, I really don't mind this small hiccup. We are planning now to move tomorrow, and in the grand scheme of things one day's difference is not important.
Why are we moving so fast, you might be wondering? Well, impatience on my part plays some role. Now that we have keys to our new home how could I not want to move as soon as possible? Plus, with rooms as exciting as our dining room, which also doubles as a storage room and, most exciting of all, Athena's bedroom, we are more than ready to stretch out a little.
|Would you believe that our family actually eats meals in here? Yeah, I don't quite believe it either.|
|What a pretty nursery - I should pin it to Pinterest. (Yes, this is the other half of the room that we eat in).|
|Living room of our cave basement home. I want to be clear thought, that as much as I am looking forward to windows, that I am grateful we have been able to stay here while looking for a long term home.|
|This is half of our front porch. Our house is called the Lion House, from the Lion statue. I love big front porches!|
|This is half of the living room, and a glimpse into the entryway. Note the moldings, and built in bookshelves and window frames.|
|I love the large south facing windows.|
|This is the one bedroom I captured - this will be Elisheva, Guinever and Enoch's room. Elisheva is ecstatic about the built in vanity and dresser.|
|We are thinking of either eating in the kitchen (moving this table out and ours in, of course), or putting the table in the living room, since it is large enough to handle that.|
|This is the old butler's pantry, which will probably become Homeschool storage on the bottom and bookshelves on top.|
