Pics of the House

 So after lots of effort in the process this is the after pics of the house.  This is the period where we take a rest, things are livable and we are settling into call it home.  There are so many other things we are going to do but for now we are here.  
This is the Kitchen and my long awaited oven.  My husband was great and let me have the one I really wanted.  Not top of the line but is a Convection Oven.  Wow, I got so excited about being able to cook and bake again.

Here Is Nate this morning.  Just a fun pic.  The kids are all happy here and love their new home.  Already making friends in the neighborhood. 

These are pics of the living room.  Right now it's a little cramped in there but I do have all our school stuff in here too.  In the future we will have our very own school room.  We are going to work on that. 

The kids are sitting at the table in our eating area / School table.  (for now)

 The slice of peace haven for me.  This is the master bedroom.  Nothing great but it is our area.
 I'm still working on this area a little but this is my sewing machine and I'm excited to have a space to work on my hobbies.

These pics are a little more of my craft areas.  This is in our closet but we had enough space to give me a spot for crafting....when I get time.
 organizers are essential....

These next three pics are the rooms for the three kiddos.  I would show you my oldest's room however I think a NUKE exploded in there.

 This is my husbands pride and joy.  His little private piece of the house.  He had to wire in the electricals down stairs.  He and the kids love to go down here and goof off.  They have already made some famiy video's down there and the kids love this space to play in. 
Behind this area is what will be the school area.  We need to dry wall so I get a blank canvas.

So this is a small peek into our new home.  We did start school this week.  I decided to give the kids assessments just to see what they remember and what I need to cover.  I don't think it's as bad as I thought.  I was a little worried but I'm sure we will be ok. 
Thanks for checking in and please leave comments just to let me know you stopped by.

The House after the first few days.


This was the beginning, week 1....the lifting was over, now finding a home for everything.  This is going to be a process.
Dinning area
 However, we will get there with great determination and relief.  We continue to remember this is our home, it's all over.

Living Room1
School has been still on and off but we will get back to all we need to do.  

Living Room 2
 The kids are all excited and the animals seem to be adjusting well.  So I am allowing you a peek into my world as we go through this process.  For those that know me, they know how tough this is for me.  I'm very anxious to get it done but it's been very taxing on me.

So stay tuned for pics of week 2.
