Hey Friends. Sorry for the delay in getting this last house post up. I just keep forgetting about it!
For the last year or so in church, I have been serving in Primary (our church’s children’s organization) as a teacher. Every Sunday I teach the 7 turning 8 year olds and sit in Primary during most of church. My class is full of super bright, very funny kids. They can, most Sundays, be quite a handful. We’ve got some special needs kids and the full spectrum of personality types. They are loud and quiet, funny, sometimes rude, usually very sweet kids. No sugarcoating: the last year being their teacher has been full of challenges. But you guys. I love these kids. All of them. They make me laugh every Sunday. Plus I bring treats and I’m sorry, but laughing and eating? Please. Primary is THE PLACE FOR ME.Read More
Again, I took all these with my phone. Always seems so convenient at the time. Until I upload them and wish I had used the real camera. blah.

Apologies upfront for the worse-than-usual lighting!
This is a tiny photo of the office from the real estate listing.
And here we are today:

I am no fan of winter. But one thing I really like is when it gets dark so early, I can peak into people’s houses. I love seeing the way they decorate, the way they sit around and eat or watch tv (creeper. I know). I just want to go into everyone’s houses and observe them living. Aaron has confirmed that this is not normal.
Anyway. Maybe there are some of you who like to street stalk people like I do. If so, I think you’ll like the next set of posts.
Welcome to our Dharma station!
FYI: this might be a long and drawn out process. I’m trying to go back through and find old pictures of the house. (WHY did we not just put them in ONE folder? It seems I took a lot as we worked and went from room to room. So they’re really scattered over several months) Plus, taking photos of rooms (and um, moving my clutter from room to room to make it look not-gross for posterity), has taken a little more time than I had originally thought.
The exterior basically looks the same.
No, actually, the exterior probably looks a little worse than it did a year ago.
Except! I did repaint the front door and trim on the front porch. It’s a temporary fix as we eventually want to replace the doors and light fixtures. Big plans are still in place for the exterior. BIG PLANS.
Here we were last year:Read More
