Our House in Cedar Falls, Iowa

This has been quite an adventure. Or a huge trial...however you want to look at it.

But getting this house has made it all worth it.

The house is on 80 acres. We have access to a barn that houses a
horse, a pony, rabbits, cats, chickens and goats. There is a preschool next to the house and the kids learn about the animals. There is a cabin on the far end of the land that the kids can use as a playhouse. The owner takes care of mowing the lawn and he also plants corn once a year. And best of all, the city plows our long driveway because of the preschool!!!

We know we have been blessed. We know that we were meant to
find this. The way everything fell into place when it did, we know
Heavenly Father had a hand in it. If the events happened any other day, we would not have found this place.

So next week we are off to our new home in Iowa. Time to go pack!!

Laura, Your house/land looks amazing. What a dream for your kids. Just imagine how many hours they will spend exploring outdoors this summer instead of being cooped up inside escaping the 120 degree heat. Best of luck and post more pics when you get a chance.
