We've been officially moved in for less than two weeks here at our new home, but we've already done quite a few projects and improvements.
Here is the new floor in the girls' room, after we pulled the old carpet out. They laid the whole thing themselves (with the help of their ten-year old brother!).
We brought along the stray cat that adopted us in Springfield (on the top stair), along with our cat Ginger. They were exhausted after the long car ride!
We've been exploring the woods around our home, and getting busy cutting down all the invasive Amur and Japanese honeysuckle that has taken over (You can see a small one next to the tree below~ we still have hundreds to cut down).
The lawn on the side yard is going to be our kitchen garden, so we are using our old moving boxes as a grass-killer, holding them down with some of the many rocks found along our dirt road.
The sunrises and sunsets here are quite beautiful, casting a colorful blessing on our little homestead-in-the-making.
If I haven't stopped by to visit my friends' blogs lately, know that I am thinking of you, and will visit soon!
