Why Hobo Young?


I had a couple of friends send out their blogger info - and I thought that a blog would be a great way for some of my family that lives farther away to still keep an eye on what is happening in our lives. ( OK - It's so they can see pics of the kids!) Why did I name it Hobo Young? Well for those of you who don't know - Hobo is our lovely dogs name. So there you have it Hobo Young blog is born.

Most of you know that our home burned down last year - we were renting it out at the time - so we were not in it! Thank God. So we have spent the last 6 months living like gypsies. We moved form the house we were going to purchase (before the other one burned down) and moved into a rental. The rental was I think 800 sq feet. So after 4 months of running into walls and a Gecko or some kind of lizard coming into the house - we decided that was enough. We then moved all of our belongings into a friends garage and we moved into their house to become "basement people". So we are now living with 2 dogs, 3 kids (when we get Detrix) and 4 adults. It is a fun yet noisy home. I hsould mention that the other dog we are living with is a 200 lb mastif named boomer. John is in love with the dog and I don't think we'll be able to leave with out many tears being shed.

So our home is in the final stretches of being done - - should have paint this weekend on the outside - and drywall starting next week! We have had a few set backs being hat we are dealing with an older existing foundation, so we have had little issues that you normally wouldn't have if you were building a new home from scratch. I won't write anymore on the house, as I will post pics for you all to see.

That is all for now - pictures will start coming soon!

Love,

The Young Family
Derrick, Emily, Detrix, John and Jospehine
