Long time no post

To say this summer has been busy would be an understatement. There have been so many things going on, sometimes I can't tell which way is up. I guess I will begin with vacation. We took our annual trip to the Frio river. The river was down this year because of lack of rain, but we still had a great time. We spent hours playing in the water, and the kids weren't ready to leave. That is always a good sign.

You can see that Owen is really happy to be there.

Speaking of swimming, we have certainly gotten our money's worth out of the passes to the neighborhood water park. Between meeting friends and birthday parties we have been there at least once practically every week. Of course I have started traveling again, so I have missed out on a few of those, but I know the kids are having a blast. On a side note, Jackson won't let me trim the mohawk. It is beginning to drive me crazy, but if he wants it I won't stop him (for now).

We finally came to the decision to sell our house. We have enjoyed it, but I think everyone is ready for more room. In order to prepare it for the market we are have the one of the showers tiled. To save money, we tore out the existing wall and hung the Backer Board. If you were wondering, I am not a drywall professional. In any case junk was moved to storage, shower is ready for tile, and the backyard is ready for renovation. I don't know when I will have time for that, but it has to be done sooner rather than later.

P.S. If you know of anyone looking for a nice first home point them in our direction.

More later!
