At the top of the stairs, we come to a this landing. On the right is our inverter/battery system for when the power goes off . . . which is often! And that round thing on the left is the hot water heater. We flip a switch on the wall, and then it takes about an hour to heat water for baths.
Turn left and you find two bedrooms and a bathroom. One of these two rooms is Seth's room.
Across from Seth's room is the pink room. It will be a guest room eventually after we repaint it. Who wants to put guests in a pink room? And it is not a pretty pink either! Imagine orangey pink! Brina's nursery was the same color until BJ repainted it cream.
There is a bathroom/shower (also pink) between Seth's room and the pink room.
Notice the two doors inside the bathroom. Very typical here. First door is the shower.
Second door . . .
Now let's go back to the middle of the landing. Here is Brina's changing table. It sits in the hallway between our bedroom her nursery.
That room to the right is the master bedroom, but let's turn left to Brina's nursery. Yes, she sleeps in her own room now. I made the decision a few weeks ago when I was sick and coughing so much. My cough kept waking her up. I moved her to the nursery and now she sleeps 8 hours or more each night. That was one of the best decisions I ever made in my life! Here is the nursery, the only room we've done any work on since moving. BJ repainted it, and then we had curtains made for it.
I wanted the nursery completely done before Brina's birth. We hit a snag, however with the crib leaning up against the wall. It is borrowed from another missionary, but it doesn't have the screws to put it together. Furthermore, it is an American crib, and the right screws are nowhere to be found here in Kenya. So Brina is using Seth's old Pack n' Play for now. She doesn't mind!
Okay, back to the master bedroom.
Our bedroom is huge! I love it. We may repaint it one day; the walls are quite yellow! But that is not high on my priority list right now.
Look at the size of our closet!
Our bedroom has it's own bathroom.
The bathtubs in this house have been such a blessing, although we do try to use the water sparingly.
Now back out to the landing. One more hallway.
That door on the right in the hallway is our school room.
And down at the end of the hallway are doors that lead out onto this huge balcony. The balcony looks out over our front yard.
And now our tour is complete. Isn't this house huge??? I definitely get my exercise going up and down the stairs and around to all of the rooms everyday! God likes to do exceedingly above all that we can ask or think. Our house in Karen was tiny. Now we have a house that is four times that size.
