We also moved to our first house. We decided to buy and only looked for three days for a place to live. We saw this house for an hour in the middle of winter. Moving in at the end of spring with everything green and gorgeous has been so fun. It has turned out to be beautiful neighborhood and a great home.
Moving day tired everyone out. Stephen and I walked around with weak and useless arms the next day. Seriously--making toast was a struggle. But then we recovered and set everything up in a flurry. Thanks to Marci and Ralph-we couldn't have moved without your help with the kiddos.
The backyard is patrolled and enjoyed by Superman. The yard has been our favorite part. It is so nice to just hear the birds chirping with no traffic sounds. We also like that homeless men no longer pee in our backyard--a major issue at our apartment.
