We are having a great, quiet Saturday. It’s the first Saturday since we moved with nowhere to go, and being here feels right. I gave all three kiddos much needed haircuts. The boys are watching a Christmas movie, and hubby is grading final exams. Charlotte is taking a nap next to me. Perfect. The only thing better would be watching the rather gloomy drizzle turn to snow.
Boxes are still plenty, but we set yesterday as a deadline for having things relatively “set up,” so today is a day for relishing our efforts and the results. It’s not perfect. No, no. Yet the house feels much better. For once I don’t feel guilty about sitting on the couch blogging instead of unpacking a box or scrubbing something. Imagine!
I love these shots of the kids enjoying a mostly empty house on the second day after closing. There has been a certain joy about our days as we become acquainted with this old, new-to-us house.
