This Easter was definitely a relaxing weekend as we prepared to get our house ready to sell! We have lived here for almost 10 years. We’ve loved our house and all we’ve done to make it a home. We’ve had our eye on the Van Meter School district for a few years. When a house we fell in love with opened up in that district, we decided to make an offer. It worked! Easter was the first weekend we had been home since buying our new house, so we spent it doing yard work, getting rid of things, and organizing to put our house on the market. We put our house on the market and it sold in less than 24 hours. We move in a month!
This Easter we didn’t have any company come up. It was nice to do things at our own pace and not feel like we are on a schedule. While it was a good weekend, we already promised to do a bigger celebration next year (I only let each kid find 5 eggs on the hunt, I didn’t use the nice china, and wouldn’t let us eat in the dining room so we wouldn’t stain the carpet).
