Here’s the Tour


Hey look at this a little bit of internet access! There is a world out there. 

So as you know.  We moved. 

Troy took a little train ride back to Idaho to get us (which he loved) and then we packed up the beastly 26 foot truck and left our little paradise in hopes to find a new one.  As soon as we got here the kids wanted to go see the Ocean.  Michael doesn’t understand why the sharks are no where to be seen and he thinks the ocean is called Oregon.  So every day he says Mom, can we go to Oregon and find the Sharks? 

Everyone keeps asking me to post so that they can see pictures of our house.  So let me just begin by saying that we did not have the same luck in finding a house that we had in Idaho.  I am too skeptical to buy a house and apparently renting your house out is a new age futuristic thing and this town is stuck in 1989.  So we are stuck with the property management company as our only option and a duplex is the best they could do for us.  Which is fine.  Let me just take you through the tour. 


Here is the garage.  (yes this picture was taken after we unpacked.)


Here is our Laundry Room


This is the kitchen.  Our chairs to this table didn’t make the move so we are using our stools. (and a bin)


This is our living room.  Caution: Objects in this picture may be closer than they appear. 


Now for my favorite part.  Here is the bathroom.  I am really standing flat footed to take this picture.  So you can imagine how fun it is to watch Troy get ready in the morning.  :) 

Our bedroom is downstairs and there are two bedrooms upstairs, but for the first two weeks we were here we couldn’t use the upstairs because there was a leak and they were working on getting it fixed.  Now that the kids are upstairs it really isn’t all that bad.  I like to joke about it but we really are getting use to it.  Besides there are some really great parks here that we have found and lots and lots of beach not to mention we still have access to a golf course anytime we want so we have spent a lot of time outside.  I decided not to put the kids in school because it is so close to the end of the year so they will get to enjoy a long summer vacation while we get to know the area.

The move was well worth it so far because Troy loves his job.  The owner of this golf course is a great guy and he is letting Troy incorporate all of his innovative ideas.  It has been a lot of work so far for Troy, but when you work for someone who appreciates your hard work it makes it all worthwhile. 

The last time I posted was about my new twin nephews and then I didn’t get the chance to update on how things went with Jayce.  If you want to follow how he is doing you can go here to read a little bit about what he is going through.
