An Addition...To Our House, That Is!

We love our house and we are thankful for it, but it has been a tight squeeze lately. With six people and multiple house pets, as well as the PILE of home school resources, we are full!
So, we are building another addition
(and we're really excited about it!)
So, first came cutting down the trees that were in the way. John took down three towering Poplars and landed them perfectly, I must say...gotta brag on my guy!
Next...the concrete was poured last week & the block should be completely laid by tomorrow. Framing comes after that...John's favorite part and really fun because then you can see the bones of the space take shape. We are very thankful!
More pics soon....

Fall Sports

My kiddos love sports & I love what all that exercise does for them. It brings them joy & takes an edge off ALL their energy!
Boys and John
All three older boys are playing soccer again, with John as Luke & Mark's coach. Little Sam wants to play too. He ran out into the middle of the field during one recent game when he saw his brother out there. The refs had to stop the game while I retrieved my runaway!

M & L at Swim Team
The older boys have been on a competitive swim team the last few  Summers & now we have the opportunity to continue with an indoor team for the colder months.
