3 years, 11 months.
This past weekend our family checked in on the progress of our new house being built in a ‘bedroom community” outside of Nashville.
As you can see from these pictures, the bricks are being put into place on the front. We had no idea which color the bricks would be, but I’m happy with the selection, which is obviously matched to the bluish-gray siding we also chose.
Our new home is also being insulated right now as well.
And as for the piles of dirt you see in our front yard, the pipes are being installed for the sewage drain.
Something that I was particularly happy about was to see how the sidewalk is being set for the wooded area around the neighborhood.
Just the thought of that makes me feel like I’m truly going to be a real American dad. I know that probably sounds weird, but seeing our new house built really makes me happy, as your Daddy.
I already envision that sidewalk is where I’ll be teaching you how to ride a bike.
It was also exciting to see you meet one of our future neighbors, a fellow 3 year-old boy, named Aiden.
You guys obviously got along just great, running around the lawn of the model home and sort of sword-fighting with balloons.
While we were there, Mommy and I also signed more paperwork with our real estate agent David Stanley, as we are currently in the process of selling our current home, a townhouse in Nashville.
As I should be, I’m not getting my hopes up too high that everything will go effortlessly and as scheduled: I’m keeping my expectations low where they should be, particularly in regards to the move out of our townhouse.
But so far, this has been a very enjoyable process.
I can only imagine what must be going through your mind right now. It’s pretty exciting times for our family right now, but I bet that’s especially the case for a nearly 4 year-old boy!
