Moving In!

It’s April vacation week and we’re moving into our new house!  Luckily, rainy days have kept me inside, busily packing and carting over car-loads of boxes, bags, and crates.  One more load of the big stuff, including our bed, will mark tomorrow as our official move-in day!  We couldn’t be more excited about the craftsmanship, artistry, hand-me-downs, local food, house warming gifts, and cheers of support that contributed to the home-building and shelf-stocking process.  We hope you’ll come visit soon to see it all first hand!  In the meantime, some photos:
