Capturing the Best in Ourselves

Our House

Well, I haven't posted about our house in a while so I thought I would post some updates.  Not a lot to show because of the rain, but hopefully we will have the foundation started tomorrow before for the rain comes again.

When construction is happening at the house, my kids have a front row seat.  Here is Huey...

And just a few inches over is the contractor!!!  Not sure he knew he would have an audience when he signed on to this job!  They are pouring the footers.

While the concrete was still wet, I let the kids sign their initials.  Of course, while I was saying, "Don't touch the concrete!!"  Louie ran and jumped in.  She had her shoes on backwards, so it looks like she jumped in with her feet crossed!

One day I while I was taking pictures, I saw what the contractor usually sees...

Our first casualty...

Does this mean that our tree will survive???

If his Daddy saw him...

The strings have been pulled for the foundation...

Here is Dewey climbing up the tree.

The first cut into the house.

Illegal!!  ;)
