This past Sunday, after a beautiful Mass at St. Michael's FSSP church, we took the kids to Beltzville State Park. We had been to this park once before..back in September when we were still looking at houses! In fact we almost bought a house across the street from this park! We are very glad we didn't. That house needed a lot of work. And in fact we drove past it on the way and they had just replaced their roof!
The park is beautiful. I am told that durinv the summer months it can be a mob seen there to use the beach, but both times we have been there it was nearly empty.
We are definitely settling in here. The house no longer feels foreign. Like we are living in someone elses house. It feels like our house. There are still a lot of boxes, but they are mostly in out of the way places like the basement. We still have a lot of painting to do and it is slow going. We did a first coat in the dining room earlier this week, but with the little kids around it is hard to paint any time but when they are asleep. And the other evenings this week were busy with other things. So hopefully we will get back in there tonight. Then the living room....Then maybe the master bedroom (I think the kids rooms are staying the color they are for now). Then the kitchen....I took a before picture of the dining room I will post eventually. It was bubblegum pink with really weird molding painted orange (?????what were they thinking)...
I have bee having blogger issues. Specifically loading pictures is taking HOURS....so I don't have the time to deal with it and so blogging is taking a very very very back burner!
