Then after the hours at the doctor we rushed across town to sign the papers for our new house. We were super late due to the long doctor appointment, but they still managed to record everything on time so that we could close this afternoon. Now we have a new house.
We hung out over there for a few hours tonight. The kids danced around to their Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego muscial CD, David and I got a little painting in, and we had a picnic supper on the kitchen floor.
We got a good hour of painting in before the kids completely fell apart. One thing we know: naughty behavior apparently happens in the new house, too. I thought maybe the house was so wonderful that fighting and temper tantrums would disappear from our lives forever!
Jonas was snug as a bug in the Ergo as I tried not to drip paint on his head. (I didn't.)
David goes back to work Thursday. Think we can get moved in by then?
Can you even believe we get to live there? It's like a fairy tale or something. There are raspberries, apple trees, pear trees, cherry trees and a plum tree. And what feels like 100 hydrangea bushes, blue AND pink.
