The House

The last weeks have gone by so quickly, I can't believe it's already May! Our house hunt is finally over, we moved two weeks ago from our apartment into a rental home about 10 minutes down the road. Being in a house with a garage, lawn responsibilities, and attic space has really brought out our grownup sides, I almost feel old enough to have children. 

Seriously, this house has made us better people somehow. Nic and I are in bed at a decent hour, the kids are sleeping through the night, I yell things like "Take your shoes off at the front door!" and "Don't mess with my Azalea bushes!!" Oh, and we've been on time to work and stuff... like I said, I think we've become adults.

Except I hate feeling like an adult so I did an "experiment" in the back yard with the kids today. I'm always telling them not to shake soda cans because they'll explode, but they never believe me. So today, at Conner's request, we shook a can of soda and shook it for a while, threw it up in the air, and watched it smash down on the driveway. IT. WAS. AWESOME! Soda went everywhere, the boys were shocked and awed, and I think they finally get the point about not shaking sodas. 

So, that's where we are now, busy, happy, blessed, and ready for summer.


  1. Yay for houses and exploding pop cans!! Your house looks lovely. And now I wish you the best of luck keeping the kids from shaking and throwing any and all pop cans they come across. :)

  2. Happy new house! It looks great :) There's just something about having an attic that brings out the grown up in us all, I remember when we moved in here last year and saying "Let's put the christmas decorations straight up in to the loft" suddenly made me feel about ten years older! Haha.
