This is a view of the girls room. We decided to put them all in the Master so that we could use the other room for school. They each have their own double poster bed, complete with mosquito netting! Plenty of room for them to double up when we have company (HINT HINT) They have spent the last three weeks sharing twin beds, so to have a double all to themselves.... WOW!
This is a shot from the corner of the living room into the dining room.... we got an extremely small dining table with the idea that we will have a custom one built in a few months. We have 2- two seater couches that go with the chair that you see in the picture. They look funny in such a large area.... but we will fill in with more stuff (plant and thinks) sooner or later.
This is part of the school room... I had a hard time getting to zoom far enough our on my camera to really get a good shot of all the different rooms...... Each girl gets their own desk. I know we are probably spoiling them now.... but they were super cheep, and I was really tired "quit shaking the table" and "get you stuff of my side" and other such sibling phrases... so really it is Mommy that is getting spoiled here :)
Another shot of the school room... Love the giant book shelf it holds EVERYTHING and the spaces are large enough that all my tall books can be shelved the right way, and not on their sides anymore!! Woo Hoo!
This it the 10' tall fence that surrounds our "compound". No we are not living like David what's his name.... that is what they all homes that have a fence with barbed wire around them. There is a metal security gate, and a little "shack" for a guard too, if we want to hire one to be our watchman.
This is the view outside our gate... that is the drive way. I'm curious to see what it looks like during rainy season. We have been told that this is the absolute hottest time of the year, and if you can survive January and February you are gold!Last but not least.... here is the Van! It is obviously several feet taller than most vans, especially around here, so you can imagine the stares that we get climbing out. Not to mention our four, lovely blond haired daughters... they are something too!
Honey's favorite feature is the sleeping/storage compartment up on top! It is a great place to but extra luggage when picking up friends from the airport (HINT HINT). It can hold nine comfortably, but more could squish if need be. It hauled all FIVE of our beds (solid wood beds) back from the capital. We are going to go camping in it soon. There is and awesome place near here where you can go camping... that would be so cool!!
