Biking, friends and a new house

The title explains our last week well...
Sunday Jack tried biking with out training wheels. He was actually able to go 5-10 alone on his first day out. I am sure this will be the first of many practices.

 We got to spend time with great friends. Here is jack with his buddy malcolm!

 Bryan and I were able to attend the school jr/sr. banquet and enjoy the food, celebration of the students, and time away from the boys :o)

 a teacher and dear friend rebekah
 AND... we got the keys to our new house. I quick snapped these photos becuase we've already started tearing the place apart to get it ready. 
Here is a shot from the door to part of the living room. it has 15 year old wall paper wall (and ceiling) we are having it all taken off, plastered (under the paper is cement walls) and painted.

 yes, wall paper on the ceiling... does that make it ceiling paper? :o)
standing in the living room by the window looking over at the kitchen on the right and dining nook on the left.
 standing in the dining area, another look at the living space. we love the large window and we have a great view.
 its really hard to get a good angle on the bedrooms. This is the "maids" room. Which is very small and will be our laundry room now, (office later when we turn a bedroom into a girls room!)
 small bedroom 1
 small bedroom 2
 a corner of the master bedroom that shows the water damage along the bottom of the walls. We are having all the piping for the apartment taken out and put outside, instead of running through the walls.
 master room window (and jacks butts!) :o)
 the lovely dandilion wallpaper in the bedrooms.
 stars on the ceiling!
 looking down the hallway from the main room to the bedrooms.
many more pictures to come in the coming weeks!!
