There's no place like our new (rented) home for the holidays. Here is Stephen and the kids ready for a walk while I finish the Butternut Squash soup that everyone LOVED (wink, wink).
Stephen is thrilled to see that Brooklyn's bike is leaning up against his car right here. oops!
Ian on his new bike. He's been rockin' the 2-wheeler for almost a year now. No training wheels needed thanks to the balance bike.
The dining room and kitchen area
living room, to the right of the kitchen, very open
we like it
the front room
usually bare without the deco's, still working on filling the white spaces
this is what you see on your left when you first enter the house
this is what you see straight ahead and to the right when you first walk in the doorway
Ian's room/craft storage
This started off as the craft room, but ended up as Ian's bedroom, with a craft wall still in place.
Of course, now that we've moved Ian out of B's room, he prefers to sleep on the floor in her room anyway, not much different than when his bed used to be in there. Can you see how Ian uses little links from our learning time materials to suspend his superhero action figures from the wire shelves? Gotta love it.
We feel so blessed to have nearly doubled our living space. Modesto isn't the picturesque paradise of San Diego, but we love having a place of our own. Stephen's new job isn't a bad gig either. Thanks for being assertive Honey Badger! ;)
