the new lake house

So… we did something crazy this month! We bought a Lake House…. we are lovingly calling it the Schartner Lake Shack.

It needs work… for sure (our list is full front and back), but we are so excited!

To be able to have a place to get away as a family, that’s what makes me the most excited.

I can’t wait to post more about our random projects we will have going on there.. and our time spent having lots of fun too I am sure.

Here’s the house… (the view from the dock)

This was back when we went to look at the house. Since, we have already done quite a bit of cleaning up… see below…

But, we have a lot more work to do!



Here’s the view from the deck… We get sunsets right across the lake. So beautiful!


This past weekend we went up for one night so the kids could see the house with our things there!

They were so excited!

And here they are jumping in the lake for the first time! Yay!


We are going to be back at the lake next week for 6 days! Can’t wait!
