Week 8: HVAC & plumbing AND Week 9: electric & low voltage

On Monday I got to step inside the house for the very first time! Talk about excited!

I met Chris after work so he could stay out with the girls. I cannot believe this is going to be ours in just a couple of months..I'm so in love with the floorplan.

I wanted to take more pictures but I got too distracted/overwhelmed.

I went back again on Saturday (9/19) and walked through it with Chris.

I love the stairs/foyer. Upstairs looks awesome, especially our master bedroom with all the windows. Chris will do our pre-drywall walk through this week. October will be a very busy month!

First week of school!

It was exhausting, as usual, but so very GREAT!

I'm teaching Kindergarten :) I was a bit overwhelmed at Open House last Thursday. There were so many people (everyone made it!) The kids were interrupting and asking questions...there were little siblings everywhere...I left happy, but sort of dazed.

This first week confirmed my decision to move to Kindergarten. I love it. Every day gets a little better as far as routines and procedures. Every day I feel myself growing more and more attached. Every day they are making progress.

Audrey loves school, no surprise there. She is literally right across the hall from me, lol. Before school started she was SO nervous. She worried about making friends. Really? This girl is friends with everyone she meets within 2 minutes...even with older kids! I think she was sad that 4-5 of her good girlfriends were in a different class. She does have 3 girls (and 2 sweet boys!) with her this year, and I told her that she'd make new friends in no time. And of course she did :)

On Wednesday Chris took Abigail to meet her new teacher. It went so well, and her first day was great. Chris said that drop-off was perfect. When I picked her up she was SO happy. As much as I CAN'T WAIT to have her with me at school, I'm glad she has another year of pre-k. She'll be more than ready for Kindergarten next year!

Thankfully it was only a 4 day week. Early mornings and late nights will probably be happening for awhile. The commute is annoying, but there's an end in sight...52 school days until Thanksgiving Break and move-in time! That's a lot of school days, but they fly by!

Week 7: roof and some inside stuff

These were taken on Friday:

Chris used his camera to get a bunch of awesome pictures from the inside, and I'm PATIENTLY WAITING FOR HIM TO EMAIL THEM TO ME ;) We have stairs, and they started installing doors and windows today!

Bedroom windows!


I cannot wait to go in and walk around! I'm meeting Chris tomorrow after school and I'm excited beyond words!!

Week 6: more framing AND trusses!

On Monday I drove over to the house after school.

It didn't look much different than the pics Chris had taken last week. I drove by again on Friday after school and I was blown away to see trusses!

It's looking like a real house :)

Chris took these pics on Saturday...I love that he took pics of the back!

I'm dying to go in and walk around...I don't know when that will be!

I was looking at our school calendar and we don't have a single day off until Thanksgiving Break...which is when we'll *hopefully* be moving in, lol!
