Moving on to March. I will explain more of this later but we put our house up for sale and actually sold it in March. We took every chance we could to play in the yard and enjoy our deck before the move. But guess what March also brought .... yep more snow! At this point it was getting a little bit old. (There were actually 2 more small snows that did not make the cut for the blog). And one Sunday we took Jackson to Popee's (Chad's Dad) farm. I thought he would be scared of everything but no he wasn't He was not scared of the chickens walking all around him, the goats less than 6 inches from him or even the cows when they were mooing. He loved all the open area and time to run. Oh yea and those snow boots had another use.
Here is Jackson with the chickens right at his feet

Now on to the update for April and finally some nicer weather. We are not huge fans of the lack of space we have in the rental house so we spend lots of time out of the house. Be it with friends or family, at the park or at our new house site we were out a lot of April. In addition, in April we had lots of fun as we celebrated Easter. Jackson was not so sure about the tie I got for him but he looked really cute!! Now if someone can just tell me how to get his shirt to stay tucked in. I just gave up and let him wear it out.One of our park adventures. Jackson really loves the park and is not scared of anything!Jackson on Easter as he opened his basket. My big boy in his Easter outfit!!
Now up to the housing situation update. In February we decided to sell our house and build a new house. So we did a few little things that needed to be done and placed it on the market. The house was shown 3 times and we got an offer and exactly 1 week after we listed the house and it was sold. We had just over 3 weeks to find a place to live for the next few months and to move there! Yes it was more than crazy. But we found a small older house to rent until our house is built. It has been a huge adjustment for all of us but we are making it work. About 2 weeks ago ground was broken on our lot and we now have footings poured and the block laid for the crawl space foundation. We hope by the end of next week to have walls up. Our builder says that we will be in the house by the 1st of September. I am a bit skeptical of this but I hope he is right!! We have been making lots of decisions the past few weeks from paint, to lights, to fixtures and on and on. I am an over thinker and this process has been exhausting.
So now we are up to date. I will try to do a better job of keeping this current from now on. But if I don't well you know that life again got in the way!!!
