Things we couldn't do......

..........in our old home!

Some of you have been to our old house and know exactly what I am talking about. Our kids could not play outside because we lived on a busy road with a very steep driveway. The children are so excited to be able to ride their bikes out front, sit on the hammock, and swim. All fun things they couldn't do before. They now prefer to spend most of their time outside after they are done with their chores, school work, and music practice. Here are a few pics.

Yeah!!! Hooray for your kids as well as your sanity...I would go crazy if it weren't for our part time babysitters named "sandbox" and "outside" :)

Your pool looks SO inviting! I could just lay in the hammock and stare at it all day... I'm so glad your kids will have more opportunities to experience the great outdoors. How wonderful for you all.

That is exactly why we buy houses based on the yard. We will just drive by and rule houses out. I am so glad you have such a great place for the kids to play. We will have to get the boys together again to play.
