Before pictures

Lydia and I were crazy this week. We painted the school room, living room, front entry, and hallways up and main floor. It was a very good thing that I was 5’7 because I wouldn’t have been able to reach the ceiling edge if I wasn’t.


Carl drove 12 kids to camp this week. He said they were fantastic on the drive.

3 big girls and myself drove to my Grandpa’s auction today. Regina met Grandpa Lieser for the first time. He is excited to become a Great Great Grandpa once her baby is born.

Evening Special Date

Carl came home from Scheels with the boys and said, “I want to take Jack kayaking!”

They had so much fun and I had fun being their shuttle.

4th of July weekend

We made the best of the weekend. We had to leave the lake because the septic system broke. It was a bummer, but we swam at the pool and had a pizza party with the cousins.

Carl had to work in DC this weekend, so I was crazy and took the kids to the quarries to jump off the cliffs. My adrenaline junkies can’t wait to go back.
