Girls Weekend






Avery and I hit the road on Thursday. The destination?......
Pennsylvanian to see my family and the Shasta. It was a beautiful weekend. I spent my time with my brother Brian during the day and my Mom in the evening.
Avery played in the yard while Brian and I worked on the Shasta. We ripped the whole back end off and rebuilt it. The framing under the window was pretty much rotted away. It was a productive weekend and a very relaxing one(if you can really put those two words in one sentence). It has been a long time since just Avery and I were at my parents home. We will definitely make a point to do it again. The boys had a great time with their Dad. He took them skeet shooting, they finished the fire pit, and they had a cookout. I would say they had fun without us. I'm glad for the time they had together, boys need dude time too now and again. By the end of this Shasta restoration you guys will be pretty much over my camper.

I can't help the excitement, the picture in my mind is too good. I am so thankful for such a great family. My dad and brother will be doing most of the work in my absence and when I can be there I will help out where I can.

**yikes that's never good...

I of course will do all the painting and polishing of the inside which is a job in and of itself. The cushions are off at the upholsterers for a complete overhaul. So excited to see progress being made.

**Brian Me(don't be jealous of my outfit or eye glasses) Dad

Homeschooling is moving along fine. We are finishing out Averys math book and phonics book and should be done for the year in just a few short weeks. We will take off the months of May and June. After the homeschool fair we will begin school again in July. It gets too blazing hot to be outside by then anyways. Have I mentioned before how blessed I feel to be homeschooling my kids?! Thanks Leanne and Rob, I know you were being prayer warriors for me last year and He heard you and in turn I heard Him! I know you love me ;)
