Busy days!

Just a random post: school has started for everyone, and we're settling into a routine.  Even Emmy went to puppy training class today!  She will go for 5 more weeks, so we are busy every day!  We start auditions for the fall play on Monday, so that's adding to the craziness. However, it will be over in late October, and then we can relax a little until the spring show begins.  

We had some out of town surprises last week. A friend of the Big Man's from high school was visiting the area, and we had a great dinner out with him and his family. Then a cousin of mine was here, and we had another great time visiting with him and his family. That doesn't happen for us often, so it was especially enjoyable. 

Here are some pictures!

The floors are finished!

It took exactly 3 weeks as we were promised!  I am so happy with the job they did, and I am also happy that we are able to put our house back together!  We are finished with the office, living room and T. Willy's room. So here are some pictures.

Meet the new band

For the past 4 years, we attended "Meet the Band" to watch MK participate.  This year, she sat with me, and we watched together.  It was definitely bittersweet.  We had a great time, and the rain held off  until the very end.

The floors should be finished Sunday. I cannot believe it!!  We're so pleased with them, and we will be thrilled to have our house back to normal.

24 years today!!!!

Just a picture today.  I started my training, and we went out to eat.  Sushi!!! We're still moving furniture around, but the end is in sight, and we may have our house back to relative normalcy by Monday!!!

One room down!

Our bedroom is finished.  We are sleeping in our own room tonight!   T. Willy has been displaced to the office, and we're hoping it's back to some kind of order by the weekend.  I cannot wait.  

So here is a picture.  I'm going to my own room.  I'm a little relieved, can you tell?

Last day of summer

It's been a fun and busy summer.  Most teachers have one more week, but I am going to some training next week, so I will start that Monday, and we report to school the following Monday.  The summer flew by, but I'll be glad to see the students and my fellow teachers. 

We took Emmy to the vet for the first time yesterday.  She earned a good report, so we are happy about that. She is growing fast and is shaping up to be a good fit for our family.  There are still typical puppy behaviors, but we are really enjoying her.  We spend so much family time outside with her, and I especially love that.  

Our floors are about half finished.   Our house is still upside down, but we are surviving.  Our bed has been in the office for a couple of days. He should start in our bathroom today, so that will be a big relief.  Then just the bathroom and bedrooms on the other side of the house, and it will be finished.  

So here are some pictures of Emmy at the vet and of the flooring progress.
