Hard to believe a week ago, we were hard at work cleaning our old house with my parents. Indiana is so far from Texas and we are so thankful for any time we have together - even we're all hard at work!
We're slowly settling into our new home and the kid's rooms were the first ones I tackled...after the kitchen. Emma loves her new wooden kitchen that used to be her Aunt Kara's!
We sold our first home today where we began our marriage and brought our children home. It was bittersweet, but we were also excited to turn around and buy our new home - Andy's childhood home. We're looking forward to many years of creating memories here!
Little did my parents know when they planned to spend 5 days with us this summer, they would spend the first 3 helping us move. We couldn't have done this without my Dad's excellent packing and painting skills, and my Mom's cleaning expertise. And my in-laws help watching the kids! Andy and I are very thankful for our parents.
The result of a long but productive moving day. Sooo thankful for my parents who loaded endlessly with Andy and me...and the guys who showed up at 7:30 tonight to unload the second truck when we were too tired to move anymore.
Moving day! Let's see how much we can get done today. Ready, set, go!
Last night in this house and the kids are sleeping soundly. My parents, Andy and I spent the last couple hours packing boxes but now, off to bed for the adults so we can move in the morning!
Exploring at the Lehenbauer family reunion. It's smaller this year than in years past but it's always good to see family!
I'm excited to see my name in print in the City Journal, where I got to talk about being a working stay at home mom with author @lauravanderkam. It was an honor to dialog with her on what is now my life. I love what I am doing and thank God for the opportunity to be at home with our children!
