To say it has been busy around here . .
Would be putting it mildly. .
Thankfully there were lots of trees for her to climb during the waiting periods. .
Devin immediately decided on NOT going to the golf meet when he found out he had the opportunity to help Kelsey and Brett on the house. .
They would prefer his help running the backhoe than mine. .
And he is a great gopher for them too. .
So when we left Friday, he had his carpenter belt strapped on. .
headed to the roof with them.
The boys pulled up the old yellow pine hardwood flooring in my bedroom Saturday. .
We are trying to use child labor as much as possible to keep the cost down ;-)
My boys have done a lot of insulating and other odd jobs to help out. I figure it is good experience for them too. .
Some day their wives will be amazed at how handy they will be!! You can now see the door to the right, which will open to my new closet. .
and the large whole to the left. .
which will be french doors opening onto the sunroom area. .
I am hoping with all my heart to have the bedrooms done this week and painted. .
so we can move everything back into place. .
and return to sleeping in my own bed!!
The greatest blessing of ALL!
Up on Saturday evening. .
Tristan took his friend Abby. .
And they were a cute lil couple. .
Cami was dying to try on Abby's corsage. .
and was pretty thrilled that Abby let her. .
I LOVE the expressions on these two girl's faces!!
We had to laugh when Cami jumped in the middle of the photo after Colton showed up. .
Her new little summer tank had come in the mail. .
which she HAD to wear. .
And it seemed to match Colton's tux quite well!!
Grant isn't into such things as dances. .
so he skipped prom. .
And showed up for the after prom party instead.
As the mom of a sophmore. .
and the loser of the home-front coin toss. .
I GOT to be the one who helped at the after-prom shindig. .
until 4 A.M.
I can hardly wait to do it again next year. .
Maybe I will win the toss. .
And Jeremy will have to go!!
But for this year. .
he DID stay busy. .
Painting my new exit door from the sunroom. .
AND finished the repair and painting of my crashed up Yukon. .
He was excused in my book!!
Come back in a few days and see what is going on in our gardens. .
I promise. .
it is already written and ready to post!!
Blessings to you and yours this week!
