We have spent the week settling into our new home. It’s starting to feel like our own house, now that we have our things in it and have it in order. My goal for this week was to get the house tidy and everything ready for school to start next week, and we have met that goal.
For our first few days, we sat around the living room to eat.
On Monday, we unloaded the container—what a mess as we shoved things into the house to organize later! See the cats? They were thrilled to have their cushions back again!
Wednesday evening I started unpacking and sorting the books. Here I am, surrounded by about 1800 books!
Now the living room is tidy!
The kitchen is small, but well-organized.
The wide hallway is doubling as our library and Mr. Intelligence’s schoolroom.
The girls’ room.
The boys’ room.
Our room. That small room just off it will be the sewing room. It’s just big enough for a small table.
The chicken coop that Simon and Mr. Diligence converted into a sleepout. They got it in place yesterday, and plan to start sleeping in it soon. I’m quite dubious about how they and all their stuff will fit in, but we’ll see. They are convinced it will work.

An amazing transformation! Looks really homely now and comfortable. Good on your boys for creating a sleep-out out of a chicken house – they are very ingenious.
