Day 289

In hopes of gaining some more storage in the house, we have two freshly cut and framed holes in the ceiling of our garage.  Rich has a new 10 foot ladder that will be stored at our house for safer access.  
Now to figure out what to stick up there.

Day 285

Blast from the past.....
The boys have a new dream sitting in the garage.  
A friend that Keith works on cars with had this sitting in his garage, owned by another mutual friend.  So, now we have it for a bit.  
It needs updates, we don't have any safety equipment among other things, so we'll have to see what becomes of it.

Getting closer.....
The boys had another weekend of improvement, ending the game with a 0-0 tie.

Day 283

Little man is trying very hard to walk on his own.  He showed off his mad steppin' skills today by taking a few steps between Cody and I.  His face is hilarious, even when slightly washed out.

Day 282

Still leaky....
While cleaning on Sunday I discover a big puddle of water under the kitchen sink.  We tightened a couple of fittings in hopes that's all it was, but weren't that lucky.  The drain pipe has a big crack in it.  So, the sink and dishwasher have been down all week.  
Thank goodness Rich insisted on putting in a utility sink in the garage, it's been used heavily this week!  
It got to the point that I needed to wash everything, including the full load of dirty dishes sitting in the dishwasher.  
We think we have a fix, fingers crossed it holds.

Day 281

It was time to change up the seasons and bring in some fall fun.  I love getting these things out each year.  
I did cheat a bit and changed the picture frames to their fall/Nov pictures as the frame closure are note in very good shape and can't take too many more changes.  
Now to start working on costumes.

Day 280

Celebrating Success...
Cody did very well on his STAR testing (state testing) last Spring and his charter school celebrates these kinds of successes each year.  The students chosen for the evening scored 1 to 2 levels higher than they did in the previous year or who score in the advance range.  
He was recognized with the other 4th graders and then was able to pick out a book to take home.

The sunsets have been beautiful the last few weeks.  This is how we were able to end the day today while at soccer practice.

Day 278

Fixin' stuff.....
We spent part of the day looking at and installing washer and driers.  Ty had fun helping take apart the old washer to see if we could figure out why it had some problems.  
New to us washer was hooked up, but it's not working so we are on the hunt for parts for the old one. 
Plus we found a leak under the kitchen sink.  JOY!

Day 274

Another trial that's proving to be a winner!  
A friends told me about BzzAgent and we have been loving all the opportunities.  They send you products (or coupons for products), you try them, tell people about them and then give them feedback.  This is our 3rd campaign and I have a coffee one that should arrive any day.
