It is a beautiful sunny day here and we just finished school! Some days we get done sooner and other days we fit school in and around errands or visitors, of which we had 3 today! Most of the time, visitors are a welcome break!!
Here is a picture of our cute house!! We really are loving it here. The space is so nice and is just working better for us, all the way around. The only thing that is bugging me is that we are trying to locate the source of an unpleasant rotten egg smell. The landlords had the plumber out but it hasn't been fixed yet. Hopefully soon!
This is the only picture I have taken of the inside so far:) We are still finishing up unpacking a few last boxes, finding homes for belongings and hanging up pictures. It is really starting to look like a home! Our home;) This is a picture of one wall in the bathroom, where we have tons of built in storage! This takes the place of a hall closet, which we don't have. I do like the large bathroom a lot.
We had a chance to go apple picking the day after our move briefly. We were really tired but we absolutely cannot pass up a chance to get fresh apples! We may possibly have gone twice this year:)
Cute Mr. Z!
Samuel pretending to eat an apple to make daddy jealous!
My mom adores her apples, too!
This was the first apple picking. It was much warmer that day!
Zakkai enjoyed trying to climb up to find the most perfect apples!
Checking out how tall everyone is! (or isn't....:)
And taller!! This kid is catching up to me quickly!
We have a cute backyard to mow now. We were able to get an old push mower at an auction for $6! Zakkai LOVES to mow the lawn and begs to do so any chance he gets. This was the day we got it and he seriously spent at least an hour mowing that day:)
Z letting Eliana help:)
Mr Z also belt-tested last week for his green belt!
He did really well and is very proud of his new belt (which he was about to receive in this pic!) He is starting some new fun things with this next belt, including using sticks for special routines. We are so thankful that he has the opportunity to do this!
We have officially entered the "busy season" of our life. We were in denial for awhile, fooling ourselves into thinking it was temporary but we looked at each other this past weekend and said, "I think it's going to be this way for the next several years!" (possibly with a sigh and a groan!
Between settling in to our new place, school, TKD, baseball, ballet, and Awana, our days and evening are really full. We may or may not be looking forward to the end of baseball season so we can have a couple of our weeknights back again. Thank the Lord for fall and winter!!
Remind me I said this when we are knee-deep in snow in a few months:)
