2014 Week Eleven | March 10 - March 16

Posts three days in a row?! I hope this didn't cause any of you to faint.  The pictures from this week are from the week of spring break. It was a really big week for us. On Thursday of break I interviewed for a 6th grade resource position in a rural district near here, and two hours after the interview I was offered the job, which I accepted. We had known about the interview for a week, so the week of spring break turned into the "how much can we get done in/on the house to get it ready to sell" week.  We were finally putting into motion something we'd talked about for at least three years- moving to a small district, because we wanted the kids in a district smaller than the metro area had to offer, and hopefully, we'll find a place with a bit of land. 
The kids spent most of the week picnicking on the floor since most of the furniture was moved out of the main floor of the house so that the ceilings and walls could be painted. They never complained.

I think this is one of my favorite shots of all time of these two.  Annaliese snapped it on the night Ian lost his first tooth. This is how she composed the shot and everything.  I love how it turned out.
My selfie in the car before going inside for my interview. I don't look nervous at all... Ian showing off the gap in his smile after losing his first tooth, literally. We never found it.

Date night with Darrin.  He won us seats in the suite through his work so that we could watch the Lancers.  With free food and drink, it was the perfect night out.

I snapped a shot of the tall ladder the ceiling painters used. I didn't know they made standing ladders that tall!  Darrin fixing some dry wall in the kitchen before we painted the walls.

Before and After of the new grout I put in on the countertops.

The best helpers around!

Wow, You've been busy! The house looks great. We're in the process of remodeling and it is so much work! Hope your house sells quickly. We're outside of Rapid City, so there is a smaller school out here. We too like to be in the country.

Lots of changes coming! Which district are you moving into? I am familiar with a lot of the Iowa side of that region!
