Another week has passed which means we have been here a month. On Friday the 12th, we hosted our first party in the house, a game night, reminiscent of our college days when our friends had Thursday Night Game Night. It was exciting to see friends that live far away, as well as ones who live close while showing off the new house. We also had our first house guests: Chelsea, Kyle, and Theresa stayed for the weekend! I think the accommodations were nice, but the 6am wake-up call by the builder’s blaring music on Friday morning did not make the best impression on Chelsea. We were very happy to have Kyle, the expert in all things handy, finish showing us what to purchase and then installing the correct parts for our dryer! One month in, I am excited to finally have a fully-functioning dryer. Taking a break from our board games, Kyle, Theresa, James, and I ventured towards the pond to try our luck at fishing. A few hours later, we had not caught anything but seaweed and grass. We had a lot of fun despite the lack of fish. The pictures below are from the past week after the party, so please dismiss any mess!
