Well, the backhoe guy called last week to say that mid- to late this week, they would be able to dig. It has rained/snowed here since Monday. Maybe next week :). God's perfect timing.
We may have to change our mind about how we're going to do the foundation. I guess it's just as well there's no hole in the ground yet.
I'm pretty sure we have decided to go ahead and use the siding we had purchased for the original house. It is a grayish/tan vinyl. We have chosen a blue color for the doors. Some of the windows are fancy, so that should keep it from looking too much like a man-cave. (Sorry,guys.)
Belle's birthday was actually Monday (bad mama). 'da Dad and I had a really nice time, just with her. She wanted a beginner embroidery project, so we had to go out of town. She found a horse picture and a stuffed bear to sew by hand. These she is working on with my mom in the afternoon. Mom is really enjoying this. She is currently somewhat house bound, due to a knee injury. So, this is an all-around blessing.
Life is getting a rhythm to it.
Lionheart plays his last Upwards game on Saturday. It has been a lot of fun. His coach deserves a medal. It has got to be taxing to try and get 6, 4-6 grade boys to concentrate on the same thing at the same time.
On Friday, Farmerboy, Gypsygirl, and Ms. Petite will be going to the bluegrass jamboree. I don't know if 'da Dad or I will be taking them. Usually, we decide who's more tired and they get to stay home with the younger children.
Life is good.
Scripture- 2 Corinthians 1-2 (these verses have brought me through a lot, I may have posted them before, oh,well)
