Summer 2011

Wednesday, July 20th

Oh, where has the time gone? Most of it's gone to the house, but we've done some other things as well. As noted, we went down to my mom's for my and my sister's birthdays. The following weekend we drove up to Sarah's parents property in Wisconsin and went to Noah's Ark in Wisconsin Dells. We had a lot of fun, and it was a needed break from the house.come

The next weekend Eriq and Meg volunteered to come down with Cayman and help us with the house. Sarah's mom, dad, and her niece and nephews have all made trips to help us too. With everything taking more time than expected and there being more to do than expected, I don't know where we'd be without all of their help. Things are coming along, but I don't think we'll be moved by the end of the month as hoped. If you want the details, it's all in our new blog.

Last weekend we drove down to my sister's house in Lafayette for a family reunion with aunts, uncles, cousins, kids, and of course my immediate family as well. It was a great time, and my sister put a lot of work into planning everything.

Now we're back in the grind on the house, with no reprieve until it's ready. I'm taking off a few days next week, more people have volunteered to help us, and with some luck it will all come together. In the mean time it's a hundred degrees outside and the going is slow. Wish us luck!
