On The Move Again

In case you didn’t catch the news on Facebook already…we have a house to move into!
6th year of marriage, 6th home, we’re getting pretty good at this.  Maybe we should start our own moving company.  Rachel could help you box everything up something fierce!

It’s not perfect, but it’s got some pretty sweet features.

PROS

  • Extra room that can be an office, playroom, or third bedroom.
  • Small garage, not for parking but for storage.
  • A pretty sweet party backyard.
  • Vegetable box in the backyard, it is on!
  • Washer/dryer
  • It’s a house.  I guess it’ll be nice with loud kiddos to again not have to share a wall.
  • Oh yeah, it’s .3 miles from the ocean.

CONS

  • All the rooms are pretty small.  Living room, bedrooms.  Smaller than they look in the pictures.  Might be time for some possible downsizing.
  • No bathtub.  Hope Caleb can make the switch to showers!
  • No dishwasher.  And no, I won’t make my wife do all the dishes.
  • It’s on a pretty busy street.  But at least the front yard is fenced in.  The back’s a lot nicer for using though.
  • A smidge over our budget, so we’ll have to pull a few bucks from other line items.

The owner lives right behind us.  That could be a pro or a con.  Haven’t met him yet.
Was stoked to meet our next door neighbors yesterday.  They have a 5 and 2 year old boy and were hoping for a family to move in.

I’m trusting that God brought us to this house for a reason, and I’m looking forward to what he has in store for this next season.
Here’s some pics to leave you with.
And by the way…we’re moving on May 29th.
Feel free to be there. ;)
Thanks!

    I love the looks of this house! Sweet wood floors and a great back yard with a raised bed for veggies! I’ll admit, I’m a little jealous. Hope it’s a happy place for you guys.

    Your place looks bigger than ours! We are in a 1020 sq. foot house. We live in an orchard and can see the ocean two miles away from our deck. But the size is manageable and cozy.

    Looks like a sweet crib. Backyard looks perfect for the boys to play in. It took Andrew a bit to get used to showers but he won’t even entertain the idea of taking a bath now. Maybe some peer pressure ;)

    Stephen – Ha! Yeah, whatever you punk. I think Memorial Day weekend is the PERFECT time for you to visit!
    On a sidenote, totally thought of you guys and our Cerritos place with the whole shower situation. You’ll have to call and tell me how you worked that out.

    Sean – True dat my friend! Even if we run out of space in the living room, we can just hang out in the backyard!
