HOLY SMOKES!! I'm in!  Our computer has been down for a few weeks.  It was fighting with my parents' Internet service, and losing.  So, we unplugged it, and have been using Mom and Dad's computer.  However, I somehow have been locked out of my blog since!  And on a whim tonight, I was checking it out, and VIOLA! 

Here is a quick update on us all.  After a short 9 month stay at my parents' house, we are moving to our own place! 

We were blessed to get into this home.  I have grown up dreaming of this house my entire life, and now, I get to live here, and care for this beautiful piece of history.  It was built in 1904 before Oklahoma was a state, and therefore a territorial home.  I love to just sit in the foyer and stroke the original hardwood floor!  Our children are thrilled to have an upstairs, and Heath is giddy as a school girl about the garage with shop space.  We are just so thankful for this new chapter.

And with the new chapter, brings new starts.  School will begin just after Labor Day in the Buster Household.  Along with it is a new chore system and new schedules for us all.  We have poorly adjusted to Heath's work schedule, and have been planning new ways to spend time with Dad, and work as a family unit, not just individuals.  We will have all new experiences in school. We will have our first High School student, and our second starting Junior High. We will also have a sixth grader and a fourth grader.  Rounding out the littles, we will have a first grader, Kindergartner, pre-schooler, and our Sweet Peach is only 2, so she will be Mom's helper.

Heath has been busy working, and now will be busy finding all our possessions that have been stored all this time.  I am busy cleaning (Oh how I loved cleaning all the wood in the house. And oh, how I am paying for it now), and have still been writing for The Homeschool Village.  I have many things to write about here, just will have to get through the crazy security this computer seems to have! :) But it is nice to share a little bit as I can, and will continue to update as I can! 


  1. I can certainly see why you are so excited It is a beautiful house!! May God create many happy memories for you in your new home.

  2. Congratulations to you and your family! You all have had quite the adventure these past few months! Blessings to you all!

  3. That house is so cute, it reminds me of a dollhouse! Excited for you and your family. :)

  4. 1904? Wow. That’s a real classic! As how I see it, it’s still standing strong and elegant. :) And good luck on all your firsts! It’s always exciting to start something new. Also, just a heads up, it would be better to unpack your boxes/things based on what room it belongs to. In that way, it would be more organized and not confusing.
