Our new house!

So we finally did it!  We got a house!  What a relief (emotionally, physically, and financially) to get out of the hotel!

One side of the front of our house. (the roads are narrow and so I'm pressed right against our across the street neighbors house to take this)

Other side of front.

Pretty flowering tree at a house just down the road from us.

They love bold colors for their houses.

Looking down a street in our subdivision.

A neighbors yard.  This is very rare in the Philippines.  The grass is probably clipped with yard shears by hand!

A video from my walk.  I'm hoping to capture the early morning church bells ringing and birds singing.  (I don't know if you can hear them)

A neighbor has a monkey in a cage in his front yard.

The cats here all look like they are half-starved.

The house across the street from us.

The guard station for our subdivision.  They only allow residents or their visitors in.

Our front yard.

Our garage.  This furniture will be painted by the landlord and put back  in our house.

Our laundry area.

My tricky washer.  You wash/rinse in one one tub and then move the clothes to another tub to spin.

The front room.

Dining room.

Kitchen. (This is HUGE by Philippine standards!)


The office.  The table gets set up and all the workers gather around it.

The front room revisited.

Upstairs hall.

Sitting room upstairs.  (we work on homeschool here)

Boys room.  (Joshua is still asleep)

The dirty kitchen.  (Actually just an outside kitchen so that you don't heat up the house.)

My bedroom.

The other side of my bedroom and my bathroom.

So there you have it!  That's our place.
