Open House

My wonderful mom came and picked up my children yesterday so that I could have some time! Time to spend an uninterrupted evening with my husband, time to do some projects, time to myself! We have lived in our house for 8 years and I am trying to remember a time when I have been alone in our house, I honestly cannot think of once! I have been home with a baby or with Sean but not all alone.

I have been cleaning and throwing stuff away, and cleaning more. We are going out of town to Camp Grandma (my favorite, not Grandma but time) and our Realtor is having a open house while we are away.

It will be very difficult to leave this house which we built with blood, sweat and tears while I was pregnant with Erik but we have added 3 more children and a whole slew of homeschool supplies.

We are looking for either property that we can build on or an older home on land. We want to have a hobby farm for the lifestyle that it can provide for our growing family.

I have been able to get completely done with the laundry, clean everything and have it stay that way and even do some projects that I have wanted to do for a very long time.

I hemmed the boys' curtains.

I made the curtains in the master bath! (look what I can do).

and I made a throw pillow for our bed! I feel so accomplished. I plan to go outside and spruce up the yard a bit more, then head off to the library, post office and if I have time get my toe nails painted (I love that). Then I will meet Sean and we will pick up the children and spend some time with Grandma!
Praying for God's will with our home.

The house looks amazing. It looks so empty.
