Hi Auntie Laura!

Auntie Laura came to visit! 

While she was here, we went to Nathan's kindergarten Open House. One of the kindergarten teachers gave him a "Reading Buddy" bear. Nathan has to read to his reading buddy every day.

House Updates 4/27

Here are our house updates for today! Papa Ray, Kim, Aunt Charlene and Dan came down to check out the house too! 
We now have a driveway and sidewalk. The wind was blowing and all that sand was just blowing all over. 

Nathan thinks it's pretty funny he can walk through walls. 

These two walked right from the bathroom right into the kitchen through the wall!

Standing in Mom's closet. I think this is going to be a fun hide and seek spot. 

Running outside 

All the boxes in the garage are our cabinets. 

First family photo with the house. Elizabeth didn't want her picture taken and the dust was blowing in her eyes.

Nathan has been taking swimming lessons. At first, he was reluctant to get his face in the water and didn't want to do the bobs. Now, he's doing really well. He says swimming lessons are his favorite thing! 

Here he is practicing his back floats. 

Doing his jumps into the pool.

House Updates 4/25

Here are house updates! The neighbors behind us are putting up their fence so it looks like we have a back fence! We'll just have to put in the side fences. 

They are working on the driveway and sidewalks today. 

Inside, you can see walls and insulation going in.

House Updates 4/23

Roof is all on and now they're working on the siding. When we walked through a few days ago, both tubs were in and they had done electrical and plumbing.

House Updates 4/18

We now have shingles on the roof!

Also we now have the false cupola. It has windows and a roof, but there is nothing up there. 

We could see inside the house and see they were starting on some plumbing. The tub we didn't want is in! Yay!

Nathan's hopscotch

1, 2, 3, 4

5, 6, (backward 7), 8, (backward 9)

I know it's terribly hard to see, but it was so cute to watch Nathan make his own hopscotch. He wrote every number up to 30 and drew all the squares. He was so proud of himself!

House Updates 4/16

They were using this crane to lift boxes of shingles up onto the roof. Nathan was ecstatic!

You can't see the front of the house very well because of the large crane!

More hide and seek

Hampers also make good hiding spots when you're small. You can pop right out!

House Updates 4/14

Here's what is going on with the house on the morning of 4/14. All outside walls are up and we're getting a roof!

Hide and Seek

See those little toes peeking out? 

This is Elizabeth's favorite place to hide during hide and seek. 

Nathan will sigh and say, "You can't hide there every time Elizabeth." 

She thinks it's fun to be a turtle.

House updates 4/11

The house has some walls!

There is Elizabeth's bedroom, the front door, and the spare bedroom. 

The garage does not have walls yet. But you can look through the garage and see the windows in the master bedroom. The house next door looks like it has some kind of siding up already!

Last Day of School

The last day of school was June 12th. 4th grade and 2nd grade are now over! Nathan had his best school year ever and Elizabeth had a pretty...
