Hello Ladies, it has been another busy week for us.  Monday we went with Hubby to the job site.  This is a picture of one of the rooms he is working on.  He has gutted all the upstairs and  Monday we put the new subflooring down in 2 of the rooms.

He put these on the rafters upstairs to give them extra support.  This is a very old house (over 100 years old).  He will be running new electrical throughout the house, hanging sheetrock, lots of updates.  We are VERY thankful to the Lord for this job.  It is the biggest job he has had in several years.

We took our school books and when the girls had finished with school they wanted to go exploring.  

Then on Tuesday, Grace had an eye doctor appointment in Salem.  This usually takes all day.  It takes about an hour to get there from our home.  Wednesday, we did school in the morning and then went to help Hubby again.  Today, we went back to Salem to pick up Grace’s eye glasses prescription and then made a trip to Rocky Mount Wal-Mart to get the prescription filled.  Tomorrow we are going down to Jessica’s.  A week spent on the road. 

It has been warm here this week.  A beautiful week for being outside.  We slept last night with our bedroom window open a little.  I love falling asleep listening to the frogs.  We are getting rain now.  The rain and the warm temperatures will get everything blooming and greening up.  So exciting!  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

New School Books

100_3460 We received our new school books for next year.  This is always an exciting time for us.  We love looking at them to see what the next year will be about.  Of course, about half way through them they will not be near as exciting.  Oh well, enjoy the moment, right.  Temperatures have been rather chilly here.  30 degrees this morning with scattered frost.  Hopefully no damage done.  We spent the weekend at Jessica’s.  Saturday was her baby shower day.  She received many nice things but of course I forgot my camera, so no pictures.  Her mother-in-law got her a really nice bassinet.  She is going to use this upstairs in the bedroom for a while.  Then they will put up his crib.   We also celebrated Hubby’s birthday while we were there.  Hot dogs with all the fixin’s and birthday cake.  We had a great time.  As usual, though, it goes by too quick.  When we came home last night, it was pretty chilly in the house.  We hurried and built a fire.  We still have one going today but I think it is going to warm up nicely.  The sun is shining and it looks beautiful outside.  Hubby and I are going to get another load of wood while the girls stay here and work on school.  Dale-a friend from church- is bringing over his wood splitter this evening to let us borrow.  Thank you Dale and thank you Lord for provided us with such good friends.  We are truly blessed.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
