Our humble abode…

We moved into our new (temporary) home in the middle of April.  It is a cute and comfortable place.  It is so green and lush around us.  We are living on Lake Monticello in Virginia.  Not ON the lake, but within the lake community.  It is a smaller house than are use to, but the rooms are a good size and the layout is good.  Also, less for me to clean.  We have less stuff here.  It’s amazing what you realize you don’t need when there isn’t room for it.  We have been purging all kinds of things.  Luckily, there is a thrift store near the lake that I am able to donate it all to without holding on to it for too long.


There is a creek that runs along the back of the house, about 15 feet from the house actually, and the boys love to play in it.  They have spent a number of hours already catching crawdads and tadpoles.


Overall, we are getting into the groove of things.  We began doing our schooling again yesterday.  The boys gave me the “ugh, we HAVE to do school???” attitude, but got over it after a few minutes…well, like 45 minutes, but once they saw it was getting them no where, they straightened up.

See ya tomorrow!

P.S. Now that we are back on schedule, I will try to start posting again regularly.
