In case you didn't know we are building a new house and we are so excited. The hole will be dug tomorrow so I decided we could actually blog about it now. The house is very similar to the one below but obviously different colors, a three car garage and the roof over the porch is metal.
This is for our master bath
This is for our half bath just off the kitchen
This is our kitchen This is the color of our stone for the exterior but not the style This is our color Scheme, but this house has no stucco. It is mostly stone and the gray hardy board with the white as trim and blue as accents.
This is the floor plan but we just did the basic floor plan because we wanted the family room to have the two story ceiling.
Well it is snowing now so I guess we will see if they actually dig tomorrow.
Yesterday was a sad day at the Reichert house. Our Dog Lyndie was hit and killed by a car. We had two Cairn terriers Lyndie and Oliver. Lyndie was our fun, friendly one. She was the one who had all the tricks down, including our favorite trick. You would point your finger gun at her and say "BANG BANG" then she would fall to her side and play dead. The kids took it like you would expect....with alot of tears. Lyndie was a great Dog.
School is back in. Although earlier than I would like, the kids are excited for the up coming year.
Noah is starting the 5th grade which at Monticello is your last year of elementary.
Oakleigh is starting the 7th grade and is 7th Grade President ( I am super proud if you can't tell)
Izabelle is going into the 2nd grade
and is excited to have her friends in her class.
Noah is so excited because he gets his own locker this year. He had to share last year which he hated because his locker partner always put his stinky gym shoes in their locker.

This year Oakleigh will have Ms. Reasor for art. Also we are so excited to have a cousin at Monticello again. Abby, Britta and Carson use to attend MA until they moved a couple of years ago but now we have "Willow" (who is my oldest brothers oldest daughter) who by luck of the draw (aka lottery system) was chosen for one of the 15 spots still open in kindergarten (500 applied I heard)

P.S. Tonya I know you are secretly proud of me for actually posting this.
