It's done!

God was so gracious to us - Duane was really weighed down with trying to finish the she d before we leave for Beach Project (he leaves tomorrow), and we had the primer on it but it still needed a roof. All he could do was leave a tarp on it (which would not be good in a hurricane) but a student that he had been spending time with came over the other day. He said his younger brother did some roofing and he would call him. So the last two days the three of them have done the roof, and it only cost us $100. God was so good because he knew Duane was so overwhelmed, and He also gave us someone who knew what they were doing.

I'm crawling!

Owen started crawling toward toys and such...he hasn't figured out he can come get me yet! I'm sure it won't take long.

I like this picture...

She's so cute to me. She likes me to carry her into the den when she wakes up every morning, and this morning I told her I couldn't because my back was hurting. She raised up my shirt and said, "Can I kiss it?" I told her yes, so she did. Then she asked me, "Is it better?" I told her yes, and thank you. She smiled sweetly, then said, "You can carry me now?" (Of course I did.)

I have a hydrangia!

For some reason this really excites me. I planted one at our other house but it never did very well. Now, I have two bushes by our deck!

We have grass!

Before...(after the whole area was cleared of the jasmine for free - it took them 7 1/2 hours)


By the way...I know grass is not too important on most days, but I have to celebrate a little about all that jasmine taking up the backyard being gone and now my kids can play!

Our new "garage"

I am so proud of Duane. I feel like he can do anything, and he isn't afraid to try. He designed this shed all by himself. He went to Home Depot and looked at their sheds and took pictures, then took some plans off the internet and meshed the two together to come up with this. We will be glad to get all our stuff (bikes, surfboards, freezer, work bench, etc.) into it that we haven't had room for since we don't have a garage anymore. By the way, it's going to match our house - white with a black roof. I'll show it when it's done!
