The Big Move!
The day finally came and we are officially moved into our new home. We had a trailer hitch installed on the van for the move (used my brother's trailer) which will come in handy often I assume. We spent a few days clearing out our old home and filling the new house with boxes. Its been about 10 days since the big move and we are just getting settled in. We have very few boxes left to unpack and have even starting cleaning up outside a bit. We had a man come cut down a few trees that had grown right against the house allowing raccoons to hang out up there in the late evenings; their poop on our roof gave them away. My Mom even spent some time weeding in the back gardens around our patio and sun room. Our new batch of seeds arrived and we are getting ready to plant them, although I can't decide whether to do it before or after our upcoming vacation, which is much needed I amy add. The gardens will not be ready here until mid summer but we are planting in the existing 2 raised garden beds as well as out at the CSA. After our vacation Aaron will also be getting started on the chicken/duck coop. Our day old birds arrive May 15th so we will need to get cracking.
Camp out with the kids our first night.

Needless to say, we have our hands full! It has been a long few weeks but I would not change a thing. Now that we are in our new home it feels like we have been here forever. It felt like home the moment I stepped foot into the house and we plan on having many wonderful memories raising our family here at BTC Acre!
