1/365 Blessings - New Home of the Petersonclan...

The Petersonclan is getting a new home... in a slightly larger Whoville in KY... right next to Grandparents. Eric and I have spent most of the year designing a space which will fit our larger than normal family. See that large porch on the side? It's 32 feet long and 10 feet wide.

And this room will be my kitchen and dining room. The dining room will seat 18. Of course we will need to get a table to do it. ;)

This is hard to see, but it will be my pantry and laundry room. 16x8. With hookups for two washers and two dryers. Never mind that I only have one right now. A second one will eventually be a wonderful thing!

You'll be hearing so much about this house this year. We are getting it framed in by a builder, then we are doing the inside ourselves. I am not thinking it will go fast. I am thinking there will be a lot of sanctification while getting through the process. But I am looking forward to the space our new place will provide. And I am looking forward to preschool at Grama's house.

So... blessing 1... family. And Home. Both great things.
