We arrived in town and were able to check out our house. We have had renters there while we were in England. Thankfully our renters left it in pretty good condition so we were very relieved.
One of the big things I am doing is converting our bonus room into a school room. I can't wait to have a designated room for all our school supplies. I plan on painting the room a bright cheerful yellow and accent it with white furniture ie. book cases and desks. Since this is a big project to do and expensive it will done done slowly over the next few months or year. The most important thing to do in this room is paint it and add better lighting.
We have also purchased a new car, a Honda Odyssey. I love it!!! It took a little bit for me to get comfortable driving on the "right side" of the road again.
