Our House

This is our backyard. Down at the bottom of that hill is a creek that runs thru there. It's SO peaceful listening to the water. I can't wait to see what this looks like when the leaves are on the trees!

We are just staying in a temporary house in Tennessee right now until we can find the exact area we want to be in. We are renting and have a 6 month lease. However, the house is going up for sale this spring so if it sells we have to move out. We knew this going into this and it's okay. We wanted to test out living in the country. I mean, we are in the sticks in this house! So far I am really enjoying the peacefulness the country brings. The bugs however, I'm not such a big fan of. I'm not sure what to expect this summer. It's only early spring and I've already seen a bunch of wasps coming out of who knows where, Jordan had a tick on him, there are dead lady bugs all over by the basement door and there has been quite a few spiders on our deck! The house is huge though, 3000 sq foot! We have a whole area in the basement that is finished that we don't even have a use for! I love that we have a room that works perfect as a homeschooling room. The house has been for sale before and no one bought it (obviously). It's over priced and the lady we are renting from said they won't come down in price. And the house itself is nice...but there a lot of odd things about it that I can see why it wouldn't sell. I am having a hard time feeling "settled" in this house just knowing that we could potentially be moving out before our 6 month lease is up even though I know it's probably unlikely. The house also has a pool so in a month or so we'll get to open that up. That will be fun! So's a few pics of the house. I don't have any of the inside (besides the homeschooling room). It's just not picture worthy yet! I still have some boxes left to unpack! But here's some of the house.

CUTE HOUSE! Wow, 3000 sq feet, I would NOT know what to do with that! I SOOO want a basement, but there isn't any in this town :( Looks so pretty!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you are back to blogging. Now to get the wifi figured out so you can be on SD a little more. I MISS YOU! The pic of the kids in bed below cracks me up. Love you!

Yeah, i don't really know what to do with all that space either! We have a whole big room downstairs with NOTHING in it! I love having a basement...BUT this house you can only enter the basement by going outside down the stairs. :( that is the only bad thing. I would much rather have the stairs INSIDE..
