Good morning Ladies ! The summer is speeding along here in Minnesota , we are only one week from August right now ! They have started putting out the back to school items in the stores and is a sign that things are moving fast towards summers end. We will enjoy the time we do have however. Yesterday , and a few days during the week were really humid adding to the heat of the sun meant it was so much nicer indoors during them times.
Last Saturday we completed the mentioned projects of installing a ceiling fan and putting up shelving in the laundry room! We are putting our own mark on the house , bit by bit! There was softball for our daughter also on Saturday , they tried hard but were dissapointed with the results. Better luck next time girls! We had a nice evening afterwards. Sunday was a relaxing day for us . We did online Church in the evening, I do like to go in person though .
Monday there was swim lessons and our youngest passed his first class after a few weeks going to lessons. He is starting the advanced class now as well. The kids also had dental appointments during the week and all is going well for them! Last night our friends and old neighbors came over for dinner and we had a fun night of chat and board games .

Good morning Ladies ! So after writing a post just 4 days after moving into our new house , I missed my weekly post last weekend ! Between unpacking and arranging things I just did not have the motivation to post so please forgive me ! I will include it here.
On Saturday the 3rd there was a lot of unboxing and putting items in their new homes , be it closets , drawers or cabinets! On the 4th the rest of the family went on a 2 hr drive to my in-laws camper that they recently purchased by a lake . They have access for their boat , so they all went out for a bit. I stayed back myself and actually relaxed mostly and visited a friend for a few hours as they(Louann and John ) were having a get together for the 4th. I just was not prepared for a 4hr round trip , 30 minutes was much better. They were home before dark and we watched a bunch of the amateur fireworks that adorned the sky for a few hours!
The Monday top Friday was the standard week with lots of work and kids activities . We also hired professional painters ( a brother of our old neighbor Neena) They repainted a lighter color the hallways, Master bedroom living room and kitchen . There were also a number of closets too.
On Friday the 9th our 8yr old played in his first baseball tournament since starting. It is cute watching them at that age ! They also played on Saturday and Sunday and came close to winning it all! They lost a nailbiter 15 to 14. On Saturday evening the next town over were having their festival and after the parade we walked around , sampled food and listened to music. It was perfect weather ! On Sunday after baseball we pretty much relaxed and went to evening Church. Our daughter had her friend Maddi come over for a sleepover , she likes it so much here she stayed 2 nights ! After softball Monday evening she had a second friend Madison who everyone calls Maddie stay over also!
The week went by quickly until Thursday when our friends Leah, Tim and their boys visited on their way to Wisconsin on vacation. It was lovely seeing them, one of the first visitors to our home. Last night Friday our daughter had to travel for a softball game , I stayed home with the boys. We have a few projects planned today, a ceiling fan in one of the boys bedrooms( wish us look!) Also some shelving to put up in laundry room .

Have a fabulous weekend everyone, love and hugs, Terri xo.
Good morning Ladies and welcome to my blog from our new home !!! This week has been quite the rollercoaster so we will get into it . On Sunday evening our good friends Brandon Josette and daughter Maddi came over for a last meal together in our old house. He also dropped off this really long trailer for us to pack the last of our household items into . It belongs to a friend of his and we are grateful for the loan of it.
After packing boxes with all sorts of items , from different parts of the house , we had everything cleared out at 11:28 am on Tuesday morning. We were leaving our home of 15 years for the last time and it was emotional ( I am tearing up now writing this!) The memories will last forever in photos and video.
At 1pm we signed for the new house and by 1:45 we got the keys , it was ours! The house was in really good shape, ( we had done a walkthrough the evening before and they had lots of unpacking to do at that stage!) It took a while for it to sink in that this was ours! It is so much more spacious for a family of 6 and we love it now. We unloaded the trailer into the garage on that first evening, we also have the rest of our stuff in storage. We stayed at a hotel the first and second night , as Wednesday we had the carpets cleaned and also the central air ducts cleaned as one of our boys has allergies and we wanted a fresh start. On Thursday my in-laws came to help with unpacking , and all the assembly that was needed . They stayed overnight with us and left at noon Friday, they were a huge help!!!
Also on Friday our daughter celebrated her 14th Birthday , so we wanted to make it special for her also! We had a meal at home and sang happy birthday with her favorite cake . I can’t believe 14 already!!!
Today we are going to be doing some more assembly and unpacking!
I will have more to come later!
