It's beginning to look like...

a house!

Yayyyyy!  Still crossing our fingers that it will be done before baby comes in October. OK so I'm still crossing my fingers - everyone else thinks it can't be done. Except Uncle Del, and he's the boss, so I'm just going with what he says :)  and if it doesn't happen I will probably cry sad, hot and miserable 9 months pregnant tears. No big deal and no pressure for him. Ha!
Electric and plumbing coming the end of the week. So far this building process is still a lot of fun; hoping it will stay that way! We have been so blessed by dear friends and family that so willingly come to help with whatever they can.

Caleb and Jake

Uncle Roger, Garrett, Dad, Alex, Andrew, and Chester too

Stephen and Landon


lunchtime with Grandma Kinzie

Bodie and Stash keeping watch

and Sylvia too

These are special memories for us and we can't wait to open the front door when we're finally finished to welcome these friends and family who have so graciously given time and muscles...

~~~ Praising God from Whom all these blessings flow ~~~



I should've known when I casually said we didn't have a busy summer this year that it would change.
So far it has been gobs of fun and go-go-go ~ many beach trips already
and we're not done yet!
The days home with my girl and relaxed evenings outside with Clinton
are the times I treasure most, though...
as I know how the months fly past and all too soon will be years past.
Oh that I never forget that the dear ones in my life are gifts from the Giver of all good things.
