Weekend progress...

It has been a busy weekend! The weekend started on Friday with me picking up several buckets of drywall mud. Hunter snapped this photo of Richard working on the master bedroom ceiling. He is actually on stilts but Hunter didn't get that part of him. :) Ended up getting the FIRST coat of mud on the walls and ceilings of the master bedroom, master closet, hallway, and the kitchen walls. Next it will be the kitchen ceiling, living room and laundry room. Oh and the second coat of mud was put on Hunter's room.

He also cut, raked, and baled somewhere around 100 bales of hay!!! Didn't get any photos of that. The only time that I was out there during that part was to drive the truck as it was being loaded and I didn't take the camera with me.


Here are my girls Friday evening. It was getting a little late but Hunter wanted to get them out to play. At this time, Richard was still out cutting the hay. As you can see, Sweetie is ready to be milked!

It was a nice weekend....busy but nice! Andrew was home!!!! It was wonderful! Even though I talk to him several times a day it's just not the same without seeing him. He is loving college and is doing great so far! He called me last week or so and was worried about an Anatomy test that he had. His exact words were, "Mom, I'm worried! I don't think that I did so well on it." Now this coming from a boy that has always made straight A's.....I was worried!! So we waited for his grade to be posted online and the silly boy got a 95% A!!! Anyway, here are a couple of photos of our time with Andrew!It was very hard when Andrew left, but I am proud of him and very thankful that he is going to college.
Hunter has played with the camera this weekend and you would not believe some of the photos that he has taken! Let's just say that only a little boy would take the camera in with him when he had to go to the bathroom.....imagine my shock this morning when I was loading photos on the computer and find one of the toilet!!!! Not very pleased with that! :(
But they are my boys and I love them with all of my heart! Now everyone is back to school this morning and I have to get my butt in gear and get my stuff done. Lot's of housecleaning to do and animals to feed!


Oh I almost forgot! I had a nice little visit from my brother and family after church yesterday! I really enjoyed that. He works so much so I don't get to see him much even though that he only lives 20 minutes away. My SIL is a nurse and she works with my sister, Chantal. So everyone is very close. They have 3 wonderful little kids and I always love seeing them. The little one, Gabe, he cracks me up! He is 3 yrs old and has the deepest voice!! I smile everytime he speaks! I'll have to catch him on video so that you can see what I am talking about!

Maybe Hunter is going to be a famous photographer one day. :)

I would be scared to death to be on those stilts. I am still amazed at how much you and Richard get done.

So excited for your progress on the house. Every little thing adds up and gets you that much closer to the big move-in day!
Sounds like you have a very close family. That is what it is all about!
