Our New Home



Here is a picture of the front of our house. It is on a "quiet" street downtown. We are excited that we are not in a cookie-cutter subdivision anymore. The house is approx. 3 blocks from their elementary school and 3 blocks from the church. I am looking forward to walking them to school and then to the church.

It is a 3 bedroom and 1 1/2 bath home. The home has a living room, a dining room and a family room that looks out to the back yard. The back yard is small but it is very shaded with trees. We have no neighbors in the back. The yard goes to a ravine that goes into the old high school football stadium .. now used for lacross.

Here is a pic of the back yard and a little of the neighbor house next door .....



We are looking forward to the shade & privacy. We will place a fence back there and a few toys for the kids. We have given the boys the garage for a clubhouse. More on the house later ....

We need to order the carpet tomorrow. For some reason, Stace does not want the 70's shag to remain.

Trev:

It is okay to say cute .. I think. I checked my dictionary and we are able to use it.

Farm Wife:

She will get it eventually, however, it is not the house with pink carpet in the room - so a little pink will hit the walls.

Sooo, cute! The town sounds like a wonderful "All-American" town. Congratulations on finding a house to turn into a home so quickly.
