In addition to taking the house from a 1 1/2 story to a full 2 story, we added on a little room on each side of the house, changed the front room into a den, enlarged our pantry, changed the extra space we had added on two years ago in the back of the garage to an exercise room, we now have a larger "loft" area for the boys to play in upstairs, and both our upstairs bathrooms are a little larger.
In the process, we had to have a huge Pear tree cut down, because it was too close to the house now and the trunk was starting to split. We'll have to pretty much start all new with the landscaping.
Tomorrow night (Sept. 27th), we will be meeting with the builder to pick out cabinets, countertops, hardware, and to start thinking about appliances and paint colors.
Logan and Cayden are doing well in school, and we are very pleased with the teachers they got. We all miss being at the bus stop and chatting with our friends, but it's just a short distance to their school.
God has truly blessed us with all of you, and all your love and kindness is what keeps us going. God is gracious and He's with us every step of the way. Hope you're feeling His love now.
Love from all of us,
Jennifer, John, Logan, and Cayden
