Eleven and counting…(her)

It wasn’t an easy task; moving everything out of the basement. We carried up all kinds of furniture and all my craft stuff and books off of shelves and just everything that was down there so that we could create space for the new family. We combined the boys back into one room, Steph moved upstairs and the office is now a hodge podge of a place… but it works. We have AC on the third floor and gates at the top of two of the stair wells and I think that two families plus the nanny are fitting quite nicely here in our haven.

There will surely be some adjusting to. Cooking for and cleaning after an additional three with a baby (not mine) on the way will certainly take a bit of getting used to, but I think I’m up for it. They are a younger family, dad is in school and working at Hy-Vee and mom stays home with their 16 month old. It’s a different situation than we have had in the past with people moving in, and I know that communication is going to be the key. As soon as everyone settles in a bit I think we’ll have a haven meeting and make sure to work out schedules for cooking, showers and laundry etc.
