Actually, this picture was taken last Friday so the framing is almost done! The rafters are on, the sheeting in, house wrap applied, and I hear that there is a porch in the works!
Sayre has been faithfully helping Trevor frame the house and is really enjoying the time spent with his older brother. It's so neat to go over there and see them both up in the rafters or working together to get sheets of plywood up. It is a perfect example of siblings working as friends.
This is looking out from where the front porch will be. Someday soon there will be cattle grazing in that field!
Picked and arranged by her own hands.
This seems to be normal for him!
After Caleb's' ball game on Saturday, I brought the kids over for "The Grand Tour". We walked around the property, peeked into graveyard, and showed them the things that you would want to see if you keep up with my family!
"Touring Trevor's House"
"Left to Right~Christian, Sayre, Caleb, and Lauren. Oh, that's part of Trevor's' arm hanging off the ladder.
"At the Rabbit Cages"
Caleb has the and imagination that rivals Sawyers so he was able to get right down on Sawyer's level to help shoot the bad guys or the deer!
"Christian and Sawyer"
Sunday found all of us attending my family's church in Abbeville as well as a delicious dinner at our house! I was so glad that I had brought the kids over the day before as I felt that they were more at ease with us on Sunday.
I can remember Christian holding Sawyer when he was several months old, and not letting the girls hold him! Thank goodness there was another baby in the church for the girls to hold!
"While We Wait for Sunday Dinner"
Lauren and Sawyer became fast friends on Sunday. While they waited for us to finish lunch preparations the read books and played with his toys; it was sweet to watch.
I hope the kids had as much fun as I did last weekend! It won't soon be forgotten!
So what have I been up to since Sunday? Well...
...combatting fleas has been my top priority lately and I put all my energy into ridding us of them yesterday. ALL four dogs received baths and a powdering of Diatomaceous Earth (DE) when they were dry. I sprayed my room, washed all their bedding, put down DE where Buck sleeps, and dusted the clean bedding with DE. You would think that all that would be enough to cause the fleas to pack up and leave but I'm still going to be dusting the dogs with DE everyday as well as giving baths more than once a week inf necessary! I HATE fleas.
Today is a beautiful breezy day and I will be spending the afternoon outside with the dogs, in the garden, and maybe over at Bull Run! Have a wonderful afternoon!
