Sorry for the delay in posting- I'm really trying to post regularly on this blog! It's kind of been an insane week in more ways than one.  Mainly because I found out I have a bacterial skin infection (not on my face) that landed me on the couch with tylenol and an antibiotic.  Turns out, the doctor wants to CUT the infection open in order to relieve some of the pain today. It's been a PAINFUL week, to say the least but I think this should help. So, if you think of it today, you could throw up some prayers heavenward for me- I don't think it's going to be the best afternoon I've ever had.

But, were hanging in there! God is good- and His ways are best- I don't doubt that.  We've still been doing some house projects dispite the "issue"- mainly because it didn't really flare up until Sunday.  Here is Jon building our new fence:

And the new fence:

We truly have the shadiest neighbors on the whole block- they're backyard tends to be a mess- bikes, trampoline, pool, lawn mowers, basketball hoops and at one time THREE refrigerators (not if that isn't shady, I don't know what is).  Now we don't have to see it when we pull up in the driveway. SUHWEET! (Don't worry, we still love on them and hang out with their kids whenever were outside, it's just nice not to have to SEE their mess)

Were heading to my parents house tomorrow for the Fourth of July weekend and to celebrate my Dad's 50th Birthday!!  I think the weekend is going to include putt putting at Ella Sharp Park, ice cream at The parlour, fireworks and hanging with my old man :) HOPEFULLY I can still enjoy the weekend and I heal quickly. . . here's to hoping!
Meg and  Dave- we are going to MISSSS you guys!

Oh Chaeli, that sounds awful. I hope for your sake it does some good! Nice work on the fence Jon! You guys have been allstars on the home improvement front. I'm kinda glad we can't do much more than paint because I would put Mark over the edge. Have fun this weekend, we're hoping Westin doesn't freak out from fireworks!
