Despite the allergies, we've had a lot of fun here. There's much more chasing in a house this size and the piano sounds great ringing through the spacious rooms. The kids have slept well. Every afternoon when they wake up from their naps, we go outside and sit on the porch swing to read books. There has been a good deal of thunder during porch time. We read The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl for one.
My family should be home in just a couple hours. I've gotten laundry caught up and the house is all vacuumed and tidy.
