This is the dining room with a back door that leads to a large partially covered deck.
This is the Living Room.
This is a view of the kitchen from the stairs.
This is the master bedroom - which has a door that also leads to the back deck!
The house also has 4 large rooms upstairs. Rosalie will have her own room. The boys will share the large bonus room. Rich will use one of the rooms for an office, and the extra room will be used as our school room.
When we moved here 7 1/2 years ago, we thought that we were just passing through and that we would soon move on to another area. I guess we were wrong. Perhaps buying a house means that we are putting down roots.
I am so thankful to have a husband who works so hard to provide for us. He and I never dreamed that we would be a position to buy a house so soon after he completed his PhD. I am thankful that he is a saver and not a spender. I am thankful that he always has the best interest of our family as his #1 priority.
All glory to God for His abundant blessings!

This particular day she wanted to be Bibleman. So, she brought me all the gear, so that I could help her put it on.
I personally think that she is at a great advantage. It's no secret that (I think) toys *meant for boys* are just more fun!
So ... what is your opinion?
Which is better? *meant for girls* toys or *meant for boys* toys?

Jonathan is very afraid of the water. I've worked hard at trying to get him to relax and enjoy the water, but he is genuinely afraid. He played a little in the sand, but wouldn't go near the water. Jonathan really tries to make the best of any situation. He really isn't much of a complainer. So, he played in the sand with all the sand toys we brought and got really, really hot. It was a very hot day!
