Anthony, Family, Grace, Nicholas
I love our house. I mean, I REALLY love it. After 1 year and almost 3 months, I love it even more than the first few weeks we were here. My list of reasons goes on and on….but here is one of the biggest reasons this was the best purchase and move we have ever made: OUTSIDE.
Our effort, to re-create our (Joe & I’s) childhood days of playing outside for HOURS, has worked. It’s worked even better than I could have imagined.
The days are longer now (yay summer) and our time outside is even more fun with Gracee running around. We have moved FAR away from TV time and indoor play. And we are so thankful for that. Our kids get lots of exercise and fresh air. And because of that – they all sleep so good!
Last night (Friday night) I tried to capture all the activity and fun we had outside. Stroller rides, bike races, chicken catching, swinging, trampoline jumping, soccer/ball play…all in 1 evening 😊❤️
I think I say this to Joe nearly everyday — I am SO happy that we bought this house and moved out here. We have given our children the gift of outdoor space and for that, I am so grateful.

It’s true. My Baby Boy turned 6 years old at the end of April (4/27)!
His teacher made him a crown and Daddy brought in ice cream sundae’s, for his class, on his actual birthday. He had a great day and felt very special.
He requested tacos for his birthday dinner. And then we did presents and ice cream (again) for dessert.
