Here’s a quick update in case any of you have wondered where we’ve been!
The past month has been a total whirlwind for us! We sold our house at the beginning of May, closed on the 25th of May, and moved into our new house this past weekend! It was pretty crazy putting our house on the market two months after Jonathan was born, but now that it’s all over, I’m so glad we did. We moved out of a 1600 sq. ft. house with a tiny backyard. While far from third world, Jonathan’s bedroom was just off the front entryway and living room (not ideal), and Owen was sleeping on a crib mattress that we pulled out from under the bunk beds each night. There was simply not room for a twin sized bed for Owen anywhere!
Now we have four bedrooms, a game room, a school room, and a large backyard! We are so thankful!
Life feels so much more calm now that I’m not trying to keep the house perfect all the time or answer phone calls from the mortgage company, etc.
Now that all the craziness is over, I will be posting daily “screen-free” ideas for keeping kids busy during the summer on my facebook page (I did this last summer, and it was a lot of fun!). If you haven’t “liked” Frugal Fun for Boys yet, be sure to do so if you want to follow the screen-free summer ideas!
I hope you’re all having a wonderful start to your summer!
