The kids started their new schools today, because it is the start of a new grading period. Meaning for the next couple of weeks we leave our current house at 6.20, drive to, through and past the city to get the high schooler to her school on time.
Then we have an hour and a half to find breakfast before the elementary school opens its doors for the other kids.
In the afternoon the roles are reversed, high schooler gets out an hour earlier than the younger ones.
This means house visits!
We’ve spied on the school bus, lounged on the hearth in front of the fireplace, and had breakfast at the kitchen island.
Here are some staged photos from the Parade of Homes.
This light will swap places with the one above the kitchen table.
Our dining table will live in the kitchen, and this area will be a reading nook.
Edited to Add: The Parade is over and the staged furniture and accessories were moved out on the 22nd of October.
All ready for touch ups that Friday, Cable guys on Saturday, Cleaning crew on Monday and our stuff on Tuesday!
Front lawn is coming in nicely!
Much less work than the poor neighbours who seeded their lawns during summer.
Our oak tree is changing color.
We also have our first weeds in the garden beds.
