Our Canadian Home

We've made it! These are a few pictures of our new home. We're a little surprised that Spring is barely here. There are no leaves on most of the trees, but the flowers are starting to bloom! We've been wearing jackets and using the heat at night. Our landlord has been very kind. He bought bunk beds for the girls!...I'll post indoor pictures as soon as I can get a little more settled inside. So, here's the outside. It seems most people use a clothesline here. Patrick's been doing laundry, so he's getting the hang of it. Now that he's gone I'll have to try it. It's not like Mam-maws, it's higher up. You have to pull it toward you...I don't really know how to explain this part. Anyway...we're using a clothesline!
This is the back of the house. The landlord and another renter have the 2 apartments upstairs. We use the back entrance all the time. There's a mudroom you enter first, then the kitchen.
This is the front of the house.

The kids have already started to make a fort. They are loving the yard. They can play on all four sides!! There are tulips blooming on one side of the house and daffodils on the other.

Last night the Landlords daughter wanted to come over and play. She's about 12 or 13 and she's excited to practice her English. She brought her friend that only speaks French. I think J, E, and B will have no problem learning their French. They had such a wonderful time and were so excited to make some new friends. Our neighborhood seems very family oriented. There are children all outside riding bikes. The kids played frisbee, baseball, and soccer. Then, they came in and had a bath and hot chocolate. They were a little cold! Things are going well so far, just trying to get settled. I'll post more pictures soon!
