So far, So EXCELLENT!


We spent a lot of time this weekend working on the yard. The kids have a trampoline, a swing set, picnic table, basket ball hoop, chalk board, children's pool, and toys galore out back... just like I would have wanted as a kid. Our yard is just an extension of our home, and the children and I love to be outdoors together. My vegetable garden is almost in, and we were able to prune the shrubs and roses, Andrew sprayed for weeks and edged. We're almost finished.


Here are some pictures of the children I took of the weekend. Our summer is off to a lovely start. This week we're working on getting the house re-organized, laundry caught up, and a routine worked out. I have company coming this weekend.... a family of SEVEN from Idaho.... in our little house..... I LOVE it. We love the Montierth family, dearly, and I couldn't be more tickled at have friends come stay, whom I've claimed as family.




More soon. Thanks for looking.

Wow. If you could see our "yard" you'd laugh. It could hardly fit your picnic table. I *heart* your yard (and you too).

Have fun with your friends -- SEVEN? Wow.

So jealous. We are selling our house so we don't get to have much fun in it. It must look picture perfect. It is also the part we would love to take with us.

Can we come play at your house?

Ashley said...
