Home Sweet Home

It's hard to believe that we've been here for ten weeks! Although it was hard to leave behind our family and friends, and our home in North Carolina, we feel so blessed to have this amazing opportunity. There are so many great things about this place- but I think one of my favorite is our beautiful house. Yes- it's totally different than our house in the States. I guess that's what make it so special.  I haven't shared many pictures of the house- so I thought I'd start with a few of the outside.  

This is a view of the front porch and the side porch. 

This is our driveway, along with a little peek of our neighbor's house. I think it might actually be a mansion...
Here's a view of the house from the driveway. Can you believe that palm tree? Everytime Jesse and I see it, it reminds us of the palm trees that people were trying to grow in our old neighborhood! Those things were little saplings compared to this monster. :)
This is part of our backyard. What do you think of our giant satellite? That's we use to communicate with the International Space Station.

Ok- I'm lying. ;) It's really our satellite for tv. Would you believe that it only picks up about 6 channels?  You would think we'd be watching tv from all over the world with that thing.

One of my favorite things about out yard is all the awesome trees and plants.
We have a papaya tree:
A lime tree:
And an orange tree...
Notice anything different about the oranges? I know it looks like a lime- but it is indeed an orange. Although they're green, they taste delicious- and we STILL call them oranges. :)
One more great thing about our house- if you stand at just the right spot, at just the right time- you have the most gorgeous view of the lake:

Now that you've seen a little bit of the outside of the house- I promise to post pictures of the
inside very soon.

With Love,
The Lynchs
