We have moved into our new house. It is wonderful. Our neighbors are great. Every one is so friendly. It is so amazing that we own a house! It is still hard to believe.
The boys have had no problems settling in. Each have their own room. It's neat to see their personalities come out. I think for my oldest is makes him feel more grown up. I was watching him put his stuff away. I was amazed at how old he looked. He just turned 9 but there he was listening to his radio while putting away his clothes. I had a bit of a 'flash forward', I could totally see him as a teenager. It's funny too that when we leave to go somewhere he closes his bedroom door. This house has been such a dream come true.
Our cats have a kitty door to their room. That was pretty funny teaching them. It was like trying to teach a baby to walk. But they have figured it out. Our turtle is in the 'cat room' too. He is doing fine. We put a screen on top of his cage. From time to time we would catch the cats drinking his water (gross) but we figured that this would be best because we wouldn't be able to see them as quickly. It stresses Rocky out when they do that. He hisses loudly. So, no more hissing.
Well, that is pretty much it. :) I know I haven't blogged in awhile ... this is why. I am still unpacking. Little by little I am chipping away at stuff. I have started school back up and my kitchen is completely done except I have some clocks to hang up. :) Need some nails and a hammer.
A friend of mine sent me a card. In the card was a verse that my hubby and I think is perfect so I am going to share it with you. This verse really speaks to us about our new home.
Isaiah 32:18 "My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest."
Glory to God!
