This is Our Temporary Home

Lots has happened since I last posted.  We recieved another offer on the Payson home just a week or two after the other offer was withdrawn.  We closed on the house on June 18th.  It was sad for our family to say goodbye to over 4 years of memories.  Addison had an especially hard time leaving as we walked through the empty house for the last time. 
So here we our temporary home which is a basement of a very nice home here in Payson.  It has tons of closet and storage space and everything we need to get through the summer.  We are trying not to open too many boxes that will just have to be repacked and moved again. It is so strange to hear the baby cries and little running footsteps in the home above us and not to have a yard to ourselves for the girls to play in.  We will definately feel spoiled in the new place.
And speaking of the new place.....a hole should be dug this week which will begin a fun journey of stopping at the new lot on the way home from work each day to see what has been completed.  I can't believe it should be done in six weeks.  The girls will have their own rooms, two full bathrooms, a playroom and a family room in the upstairs.  The master bed and bath is on the main level along with another half bath for guests, a laundry room, kitchen, dining room, gathering room and office.  I love the floorplan so much and it is the perfect size for our little family.  We have purchased our new appliances and have begun shopping for other top-priority items.  It may take a year or so to get it all together how I want it, but I am looking forward to the challenge.  Addison will be going to Meadow Elementary about the same time the house is finished. Daycare, piano and dance classes (possibly gymnastics) have yet to be figured out, but I feel like it will all fall into place somehow.
