Gettin' Countrified

And so ends our first week in our new house in the country, and we are loving it. Not even living out of boxes has dampened our enthusiasm for our new home. Today we spent the day taking care of the basics: laundry and more unpacking for me, and lawnwork for Jeff and the girls.
All the lawn mower pictures were taken from the back yard. Check out the view from our back patio. I love the barns that are behind our home.
This morning our neighbors asked if they could cut through our pastureland with their horses. We, of course said yes, and then they asked the girls if they would like to go for a ride. Only Regan was willing to jump head first into our new country life. She is with Johnny. Now she wants a horse...
Lastly, but perhaps most important, is that we had Jeff's sister Debbie and her family over for dinner last night. It was fun to have all the kids running around, and to have room for them to run around. Here are all the kids, minus brand new Margaret who was napping, having dinner on the back patio. Look at all those red heads! No one can convince me that red heads are going extinct (although strangers at random stores always try to...)
Anyway, we love our new home. Anyone who would like to visit is more than welcome. We just can't promise that you won't be put to work unpacking boxes, filling holes in walls, or, if Regan gets her way, feeding the livestock.
