HOME SWEET HOME


Sorry for being absent a few days, but we have been working on the house. I have to say our home is such a blessing. We live in an extremely wealthy area (which we are not) and it took us a year to find a home we could afford near Scott's school. We found a 25 year old cottage (which Jeremiah calls a train caboose). It had only 1771 sq. feet and one bathroom. We now have 3000 sq. feet and 3 full baths. We have worked so hard to make our house a home our kids could enjoy and as a family we would love. I have to say there a so many things I would like to do to it, but when we are splashing around in the pool, having family dinners together, shooting hoops, jumping on the trampoline or just sitting by the firepit I send a little prayer of thanks up to the Lord for blessing us with this great home. We live and play in our home hard. We always have people over, players from school, and friends. I love sharing my home with others, which is why I am so excited for all my China Travel Mates to come here for the reunion (not to mention that my kids are wild and crazy and I get nervous when we are at other people's home) .... This picture was just a fun day of hanging outside by the pool.

Totally hear you over here - we live a small house but we make VERY good use of our space!!! It works for us - and yes, we'll even try to cram in one more!!!

Can't wait to check it all out. Is the pool in the front or do you park the van in the back?? Guess I'll get to find that all out soon enough.
