First Impressions.

I actually made it in 35 minutes - even with a missed turn!

The house is really wonderful (this was my first time seeing it in person). I can see them living there for years ... which is how long it might take Katie to recover from the move. and the unpacking. Here we are mid-morning.

By lunchtime we had most of the kitchen unpacked and put away. We spent the early afternoon on the pantry (sorry, no photos). I didn't think it was all quite ready for "after" photos, but still, feels like we made a ton of progress.

When I saw the Think Write Thursday topic this week - about treehouses - I thought immediately of this one.  What fun for the boys (and us grownups who get to play with them)!

The house was built in the 1950's, so the trees are tall and now, full green. This is the view looking up from the deck.

I left about 2:30 ... a few wrong turns later, I was back to that part of the map where the route takes a sharp turn north. This is the most traffic I've seen in a while - but I did make some headway in my (audio)book.

Tomorrow we're working on the boys' rooms - two bedrooms and a playroom. Maybe the in-progress photos will include little boys ... I hope so!

Happy Weekend!

Moving is exciting and so demanding...pack, unpack, oh so tired and so excited...remember those days well. I love the treehouse and am looking forward to seeing more of it with the boys over the years. A toast to you and Katie for all your hard work today. Rest up and drive carefully tomorrow.
Cheers~

I think the kitchen looks pretty darn good for just moving yesterday! And those trees and that treehouse! You and the boys are going to have so much fun there. Thanks to Honore for pointing out Sam! Wishing you safe travels, light traffic, and happy unpacking.

That's a gorgeous kitchen - it's clearly been newly updated and isn't from the 50s! Your help must be greatly appreciated, that's a ton of work and I remember how grateful I was to have my mom help me when I moved into my first house. (My second house was when I moved into Dale's house so it was much less epic in terms of stuff.)

The light in the kitchen is so spectacular! How fun to see Sam looking over his shoulder at you. You both will be exhausted but having the house put together enough to live in is priceless!
