Welcome to your new home!

Because why stay in one place and get bored when you can move AGAIN?!
Yes, we are moving.
Not until August, but we ARE moving again. This time for at least two years, I promise!
We decided that it would be in our family's best interest to move on base so we went to the housing office a couple weeks back, and got on the list. Who knew in just TWO weeks they'd be calling us with a house. I know you'll all have lots of questions as to why so lemme try to jump the gun and answer them all
PROS:
*Will save money. It would cost the same as our rent each month (they take the money out of your paycheck instead of you paying it to someone) but that money includes: people to mow the grass for you, fix your problems in the house, electric and water. So it ends up being way cheaper.
*Closer to everything which means less driving
*Safer while Austin deploys
*Better DOD schools for the kids that don't FREAK when you take your straight A students out for a week or so. Hallelujah!
*Free preschool for Miah three days a week or something like that.
*Moving before baby comes and before school starts so we can get settled.
*Close to Summer and MA!! Maybe I'll have you over for dinner now that you won't have to drive to Texas.
*I get to decorate all over again. YES, this is a PRO, I LOVE this!!
CONS:
*Will have to pay 2 1/2 months of double rent until this lease is up.
*Less space (but still 4 bdrm)
*Far from Target (but maybe that's a pro?)
*Farther from my workout place (again...a pro?)
*Even farther from Amber (maybe all these are pros? *wink*)

Okay really I just wanted to move because I read Janae's post and was jealous and had to out do her. No just kidding. But for real...
Another HUGE pro, and we just got lucky with this one, is this amazing park that is exactly across the street from our house! SOO rad right? Picture this...
Big kids are buggin me
Bein loud
Isaak is trying to sleep
Screamin newborn
SOOOOO....
I open the door and KICK them out to the curb.
Or the park
Or Summer's house
Whatever!
We are MEGA excited!
Also this week,
Kora graduated from gymnastics and received her trophy!
She is seriously GOOD at this sport. I'm not just sayin that. She has the perfect body and flexibility for this. I'm really hoping she keeps it up because I see her being the next Shawn Johnson! Hah!

Plus, you'll be .5 miles from the exchange/ commissary, dollar movie theatre,free olympic sized indoor swim pool, bowling alley, shrimping pier, and across the street from the grade school. Welcome to Mayberry. MA.
