At least for our little family, and one reason I have been so quiet lately (other than a baby who does not want to sleep!). We have decided to move a little further north (though still in-state) to live nearer to family. This is doable since the kids are homeschooled and my husband works from home, but mostly because a farmhouse rental my grandparents own now sits empty. We are moving in so we can attempt to sell our current home.
I am excited to live nearer to family, but it was a difficult decision for me as there is a great group of women here that I have come to know, many of whom homeschool and are Catholic. The Catholic homeschool group is large and active here. Now I will find myself in a rural area with a small faith community. It will definitely be a change, but I am up to the challenge!
I have many school-related posts to put up, let alone anything else, but over this next month, I have a feeling I will be very quiet as we pack up and settle in.
This farmhouse has history with me. I grew up just down the road, and as a young girl, one of my first friends lived in this house. My grandparents rented it even then. This house has been lived in, you know?
Here are a few pictures. It is not a big house as some farmhouses can be, but it works for us. And, according to my grandma, it is the oldest house in the county. Neat, huh?
