More House Pics

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 New Homestead!!

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!

Piano Recital

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 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.
