So...this house that we've called home for the last four years is no longer ours! 

Not having a concrete plan, we decided to put our house on the market this summer to "test the waters" and see if there was any interest. Knowing that we were unwilling to negotiate price, we figured it would sit on the market until just the right buyer came along...totally unexpected to have multiple offers within two weeks! 

We were excited and nervous and had to seriously (and quickly!) consider what our next move was going to be! We'd checked out several houses at the River Course in Radford and decided instead to build on one of the few remaining lots - on the golf course along the river. We are excited! 

Until the house is ready we're renting a place just up the road from our old house. 
The kids have all loved being in the rental and we've met some great neighbors. 
We're here for about a year...until we move...again (for the last time!!)

Austin, Texas!

We just got back from our annual Girls Weekend --- SO FUN! 
I loved every.single.minute with Mom and Meghan!

Austin did not disappoint! We filled our weekend shopping, walking, eating, talking, hiking, relaxing, site-seeing, and visiting. They had a great shopping district - South Congress - very eclectic and funky. Lots of unique stores and people watching! 

The food in Austin was AWESOME! There were restaurants around every turn, lots of food trucks and everyone we talked to said you really can't go wrong when picking a place. They were right! 

Saturday we went to the Spa at Lake Austin. It was just outside of the city - a beautiful drive - we spent a very serene and luxurious time relaxing! 

I am very thankful for the time away to spend with my two closest friends...
life really is sweeter with these two!

Until next year!

Hurt Academy 2016

After an extended summer, we finally started the school year this morning! The kids were super excited and we had a fun day of learning 😊

Georgia Grace enjoyed puzzles.

The two big kids had a busy morning!

Hudson loved feeding Mugs letter sounds.

Reciting the Pledge.

The day wouldn't be complete without a mess! Georgia found the box full of glitter - and in a matter of minutes emptied them all over the carpet! 

Excited to teach these babes this year! 😀
