Daddy look, there are already a two red armchairs, three cupboards and a big, red couch in the living room!
 
Andreas:
 
Everything looks great! But where are the bedrooms?

The bedrooms are upstairs. There are also two bathrooms.
 
 
 
The adults walk upstairs. Anna and Pedro run. They hear Anna shouting for joy.
 
Anna:
 
Wow, have a look at this! This is my room, it has green walls! I love it! And this is Pedro's room!
 
Pedro:
 
Yes, I like it. Look, we already have wardrobes and beds!
 
 
 
Dave shows Andreas and Maria their bedroom. There is also a nice bathroom and a small balcony.
 
Maria:
 
Oh, I can't wait until all our belongings arrive!
 
Dave:
 
The truck comes tomorrow. I hope everything works out. But for now, I will leave you to enjoy your new home. If you have any more questions, please call me! Andreas, see you next week! Bye everyone.
