Home Sweet Home

This is our new house.

Our current home.

No matter where you live, cottage or mansion, city or country, it is always great to get home after a trip. We arrived home about 10pm last night and were very glad to be able to sleep in our own beds. Today we did all kinds of seemingly trivial things like dental appointments, doctor appointments, purchasing Mya's flower girl dress for Katie's wedding, doing laundry and other needed items like getting grad invites ready to mail. Keith is preparing his new trailer for our impending move.

Let me add that Murphy and pink blankey were left in the hotel in Nebraska. We are thankful to God that he was found and is on his way back to us via some sort of mail. Tonight is has been rough in Murphy's absence. Daddy is laying in Mya's bed helping her get to sleep.
As you can see, our house is sold and we have purchased another one. They are actually similar in a lot of ways which is what drew us to the new house. It is on a cul-de-sac with sidewalks all around the circle. It has a bike path running through the yard so that we can bike from the house to a nearby lake. It is close to my brother's home--about 1 mile east. There are two public schools and one Christian school nearby--all have good reputations. We are close to shopping and all that city stuff. Yes, we will miss our acres and wildlife but not misquitoes and deerflies. We will miss walking the long driveway but not clearing the snow in the winter. Life is full of gives and takes. We have experienced both city and county living and have found that you can be happy in either place but having family close by is a good thing.

Your new home looks really nice! I agree about living close to family. I'm not sure I could live away from my family. I have lived in St. Louis all of my life.

I look forward to seeing photos of the inside of your new pad! :)
