The Sea & The Countryside - Moving Day!

                         The Sea & The Countryside 

One afternoon I had been sitting in the house with a cup of tea and a little real estate catalog. I love to window shop.. or should I say house shop? We'd been in the market for a new hour for little while. I wasn't really in high hopes of finding anything when I saw it. The perfect little cottage up on a hill. It was victorian ( my favorite style! ) it had a lighthouse in the front yard, a barn, acres of land, a lake, and a veggie garden. I was SOLD. I called my real estate agent up that moment and booked a time to see the house that weekend. That Saturday Ivy and I went to see the house along with our neighbors. We were sold the minute we saw the house. Luckily enough just about a 1/2 mile away there was another cottage for sale. Our dear friend decided to come with us. We both put in offers on the houses and heard back the next day. They accepted! We were moving! 
Moving day came and went. It was exhausting but I managed to snap a few photo's from the day. I hope you enjoy! 


The Car was packed tight!

Our Living Room

The small stairwell there leads to my classroom. Each girl has a small hook with a jacket, basket and a coinciding little house on the right for their belongings.

Circle time and rest area. You can see one of our peacocks in the front yard.

The reading area, with bunk to look into our fish tank that shares a kitchen wall. Art Center and "What we're learning wall"

Part of the science center and work/lunch table.

We're missing a few pictures of all our classroom pets..if you turn around in this photo you'd see a whole shelf with pets! Tadpoles, hamster, lizards, fish, a dirt table, water table and posters of feathers, butterflies and insects!
