We also really, really love our house. I can't wait to get everything in its place and give you the grand tour but it is taking a long time. I guess having a little (active) one running around kind of gets in the way of putting towels in their right place or hanging pictures.
Another reason it's taking longer to get settled is because we decided to do some renovations to our kitchen. I know... we're crazy. But I really couldn't look at the striped wallpaper and navy blue counters much longer. Plus, I knew if we didn't do it now it probably wouldn't get done. We are still in the throws of it... we've taken down wallpaper, painted walls, painted cabinets, put on new hardware... but we still have the counter tops and the back splash to do. I'm so ready to be done; We are about to start hosting a LOT of dinners and it would be nice to do it in a kitchen that doesn't look like this...
For now we are getting ready for our staff team to arrive. We will start meeting on Monday for planning and then school will start August 24... let the chaos of the fall begin!
