September 18 - 24, 2016

This past week was quite eventful for the Carnahans. 

On Monday our Home School Co-Op started back up. The kids were ready to see their Co-op friends. Landon will be taking guitar and Basic Automotive. Elaine is taking a Reading Class and Choir. Levi is taking Choir, and Elliot is taking a Hands on Math Class.

 We were thrilled to find stools just like we were looking for on clearance at Plow and Hearth. We got 5 for the price of 1 or 2. Now the kids can do breakfast and lunch at the bar, and when all our school stuff is spread out in the dining room we don't have to move it for lunch.

We just slide Emilia's chair in for now.

Had to grab this cute picture of the kids eating lunch.
 Elaine has become quite the helper in the kitchen. She is very close to completing her AHG cooking badge as well.

The finished product. Yummy

Levi turned 6 on the 22nd.

He requested a PJ day and oven babies for dinner. 

We ate an early dinner so Daddy could join us before he went into work.

Elliot really enjoyed the farming sensory tub I put together for him. I used popcorn and an International Harvester tractor toy. I also put in some measuring cups. All the kids eventually wanted a turn. 
 On Thursday we officially listed the house on Treelane Dr. The listing went live around 8:30 that evening. Someone wanted to see it the next morning at 7:30 am before they went to work. Glad I didn't have to get all the kids up, dressed, and leave the house ready for a showing at that time in the morning. We had an offer by lunch, and by 3:30 in the afternoon we had a signed purchase agreement. Not to mention all the other showings that occurred Friday. God blessed us more then we could have even imagined. 

On Friday we celebrated Levi's birthday with pizza, cake, ice cream and jumping at Inflatable Fun Factory.

He got several new books. He has already finished one of them. He has asked me to email the author to see when book 19 in the series will be released. It doesn't come out till next month, so he decided he would go ahead and start the Prince Warriors Series. He may even be more of a book worm then his mom!

Were are Moved

We are now living and schooling in our new house. We are really enjoying more space and and new layout. It was a rough two weeks, and another two weeks before we had our old home cleaned and all the little projects checked off. Of course we still have lots of boxes to unpack but that will be done little by little as we adjust and decide where things need to go.

I have decided to just recap the last few weeks through pictures and then hopefully I will be able to get back to our weekly recaps.

Emilia has seemed to enjoy everything she has tasted except broccoli. I think that had more to do with preparation then actual flavor. We aren't really in any kind of routine, just trying things here and there.

I had lots of "help" packing. Elaine and Landon did pack a good portion of their bedrooms and toys in the basement.

Meal times during the move were sometimes a challenge. Once we closed it was easier to begin eating over at our new home. 
First lunch in our new home

I had prepared several freezer meals ahead of time to make things a little easier. Chicken, broccoli, rice casserole for the win on our "new" Jenn Aire.

Leftover pizza and a history lesson.

We love all the sunlight in our new dining room. We also do our "sit down" learning around this table.
Who knew microwave shopping could be such an adventure? - Photo by Landon, he was sure we would  want to remember this.

Sometimes the lack of sleep crept up on us.

Emilia has changed so much over the last few weeks. She is crawling all over the place and pulling up. She has also not slept much at night and been teething, but we still love her sweet smile and cuddles.

We love our new home and look forward to lots of fun memories.
