busy busy

things have been a whirlwind around here lately.

last week we did an estate sale for grandpas house. we got everything ready for it in three days. it was insane. so glad that's over. the kids had a lot of fun playing with random things though and hanging out while we were working. they played with a cassette tape player for over 2 hours and loved all the magnifying glasses. they kept saying they were finding a mystery! the kids also started vbs on thursdays last week. our church is doing a once a week vbs called summer safari. it's really cute and they are studying the countries where our churches missionaries are each week. mason and sawyer call is gps.

we have started the remodel of the house and are busy picking everything out and working on it. i am so excited to see it all done. there is so much to do between now and then though that my brain kinda freezes thinking about it.

i have started refinishing a bunch of furniture for the house when we move in.

i bought an ebook that my friend allison recommended and have been learning how to do it! the furniture isn't perfect but is good enough for me. it is going to look great when it's all put together. so far i have been working on the four pieces for sawyers room. i have finished her night stand and chest of drawers,and have started on her dressing table and headboard. it is a lot of fun to do, but takes so much time. which i don't have a lot of these days. and since it's 110 everyday it is so hot working out in the garage!

other than all of that we have spent a lot of time playing and swimming, oh and i have been working almost every single night. busy as usual.

and for harper, he is growing so fast and is such a puppy right now. and when i say puppy i mean brat that pees everywhere and chews on everything. ready for him to be a big old lazy dog already :) good thing mason gets up and tells him how much he loves him every single morning.

I seriously wish I could hang with ya'll for a couple of months! That looks like so much fun! It's so rewarding to do it all yourself! Can't WAIT to see it all done! Love the puppy pics, too! He'll grow up too fast, just like your kiddos... my "baby" is already 11 :(

(I had some serious flashbacks with those metal trays! Crazy!)
