"Build me a stone wall."






Kris was quoting a line from Facing the Giants to Bel as he built!

Snow and friends

We had several guests come over after enduring some winter-like conditions at the National Christian College Cross Country meet. It was so nice for some of the same people who came last year as we were just moving into the garage to come back and see us moving again. Today was the first day I have seen Kris actually sit down since we have moved. Our kids were THRILLED to see a bit of snow. As I am writing this it has all melted but the sounds of excited voices and the feel of cold fingers trying to make a snow ball are still echoing through our log walls. We hope you are enjoying your weekend.

"Impressive" trash

This post was inspired by the guy picking up our loaded dumpster. He told Kris that he aught to take a picture of how neatly and evenly Kris had stacked things up. Apparently he has many loads where he has to charge people because they have overfilled. I was also thinking of the many questions we get asked about our home. I hope this shows the other side of building and being your own General Contractor. :)

The shuffle

I am sorry for the lack of posts lately. We spent the night in our new home on Friday night and I was scheduled to work for the next 3 nights. Needless to say there hasn't been a lot of time and it is only today that our computer is set up in the log home. We are unpacking boxes that were put together 2 years ago. It is a happy sort of chaos here right now! :)
I am a bit surprised to see the things that were very special to me 2 years ago and hope to find the women who enjoyed tea, sewing, and running soon. I think I miss her. :(
Off to put the kids to bed and unpack another box now....goodnight.

We are in the process of moving to the house. I can't tell you how strange it is label our living spaces now. A few times we have asked one of the kids to put a tool in the basement only to find it in the garage! Bear with us as we try to settle in. I will post pictures when there is something more exciting then dust bunnies or piles of clothing! :) We are excited.

Family and friends

We have had an enjoyable weekend. Not only has the weather been beautiful, but we have been able to hang out with some special people. Skating, a party, church, and a visit from the Williams' grandmas have made for fun times.
We will keep you updated on the house's progress. It looks like it should be an exciting week!
