Here are some highlights that have happened over the past two weeks. Seems like they are really booking it since the slab has been poured. We had some really bad storms last week (while our house was being framed), but all is well and God blessed us and our frame was just fine. Another home a bit ahead of ours in the schedule was completely blown down though. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

The house sold and we are spending our summer in a town home. It is cramped and we have a ton of stuff in storage and in boxes - but we are so blessed. Our house got a contract just after six weeks and that is a huge Praise. Here are some house pictures. We are super excited to build and watching the house go up is so much fun!

Bean had her first recital for piano this April...I know I am so behind. I have video but need to pick it up from my Aunt still. She did great - no fear - and did a pretty impressive job playing Mary Had a Little Lamb in octave form. After she was done, she liked the applause so much, she wanted to do it all over again. Little Ham I tell you......I love this dress by Gymboree..but it will never look this pretty again...it is something fierce after you wash it and my ironing skills are not up to par...well they are pretty non-existent...but seriously.....come back tomorrow for construction pictures of the new homestead.
Lots of busy and Lots of tired! I know that some of you were really tired of seeing Woo Hoo - Walgreens at the top of the blog. No more - I am back now! I have the computer and camera up and running again...so I hope to be posting more regularly now! Here is to more blogging!
I am blessed to have been married to my high school sweetie for 13 years! I am Mom to amazing four year old who is full of energy and spunk.
Roon is my hubby's nickname and that is what I call him on the blog. I used to call him WeeBee (cause I thought he looked a bit like a weeble wobble - the old school kind) and he made me change it when we were in high school. I don't know where Roon/Roony came from - it just suits him.
Bean is our daughter's nickname. When she was a baby she was always jumping - like a jumping bean! She is still jumping.
