Rob and I have an architect
coming out to our house tomorrow.
We will be discussing with her
expansion options for adding
another bedroom and bathroom.
We have four bedrooms right now
which means there is no guest space.
When we have guests we shuffle the boys around
to accommodate everyone.
Even more of an issue is the bathroom space.
The three children share a very small hall bath.
It has one sink, a toilet and a shower/bath combination.
You can fit two children comfortably, standing,
in there at one time.
Now that Kate is getting to be a teen,
she really needs her own space and some privacy
for girlie things.
We'll see what the cost is as compared to moving
to a house that has these changes already done.
We love our lot and the schools
but don't feel particularly wed to the neighborhood
in which we live
(most people have been here nearly 20 years).
In two years Kate will be starting high school
and Chris will be starting middle school
so if a change is coming, it would be then.
Traditions and belt buckles.
