Our new home!

We signed the contract! We don't get the keys until June 1, but turns out the landlord actually lives RIGHT next to us (we only share the kitchen & entry walls and it's with his apartment!) so he will let us in any time to paint etc.

Now for the tour...Here is the main entry with nice big closet

The view from the entry way, looking through the kitchen eating area into the kitchen.

The kitchen. The other wall is also full of cabinets. Love the gas stove. And a double sink, an unusual item in Spain.

The eating area of the kitchen. We'll put the fridge here because it's too fall for the space in the kitchen.

So there you have it! It feels so good to KNOW where we are going to live. We walked to school from the flat, and it's only about a 15 minute walk. So that is great.

I'll leave you with a picture of the kids in front of the school gate. My allergies have been keeping me from getting sleep, so I need a nap!

I am so happy it has all worked out. Looks like a great place. Enjoy not having the stress!! Oh, I so know what you mean about the allergies. Mine are bad too!
Doing well though!

That looks amazing! Especially the huge long balconies... and the hin n' her sinks so you and Troy ca stop fighting over who gets to wash first...and all the big french windows...

Looks like you're going to have a bit of a struggle trying to move AND keep things simple, but never fear...I will be in Madrid on the 30th...what better help could you ask for?! :p
