This is our apartment building. We are on the second floor left corner.
The master bedroom (we had to downsize from a king size bed to a full size bed) :)
Balcony #1 that is off of the master bedroom & the kids' bedroom. It is where we dry our clothes. :)
Master bathroom. (Yes that is a bidet behind the storage cart. The kids had fun with the one in our hotel room when we first got here, but they have thankfully lost interest. Miriam still plays with it now & then, but I think the novelty has worn off.)
Kids' bedroom. We surprised the kids by bringing their wall decals that we had on their bedroom back in TN. Miriam has fun moving them around. They are just vinyl stickers so they peel on & off easily.
Bedroom #3 aka the toy room. We recently bought the play rug at Ikea for 10 euros. The kids love it! It was definitely worth the purchase.
(Eventually this may become a bedroom for one of the kids, but for now we kept them together since that was what they were used to. We didn't want to overload them with changes.)
We love this couch! The bottom pulls out & up to turn it into a full size bed.
We bought it at Ikea (along with all our other furniture & accessories).
Balcony #2 off the living room. The table & chairs are our most recent purchase.
We've enjoyed eating our dinner out there in the evenings.
Dining table which is also in the living room.
(Yes that is our vacuum in the corner. Storage is limited.) :)
There is a door that leads out to Balcony #2. It is all connected outside.
We did buy a dryer. Not many people use dryers here, but we are so glad we bought one. Now that it is finally warming up we've starting hanging our clothes outside more often.
Here are a couple random pictures from this morning & the other night.
Yesterday was San Jorge (Saint George) day here in Spain. It is similar to Valentine's Day.
Men buy women red roses & women buy men books. There were rose & book stands along the streets & in the stores.
The kids learned about the story of San Jorge in school. Supposedly San Jorge was a knight who defeated a dragon to save a princess. If you look at the picture above you can see Miriam was
re-enacting the story. She used her Princess Anna doll for the princess & Christoph is down by the cars & planes so I guess he's the knight. Not sure who the cars & planes are supposed to be. :)
This was from a couple nights ago. Since the time change, it stays light here until 8:30 at night, so it is hard to get the kids to go to bed on time on school nights. Miriam just would not go to sleep so she ended up out in the living room with mommy & daddy.
The school year goes through the middle of June here, so it's going to get harder & harder to convince them it is night-time when the sun stays up until after 9. Thankfully their school day doesn't start until 9:00 am because ever since the time change everyone has been sleeping in until 7 or after
(even Josiah who is usually up by 6).
