It was a fun week of adjusting to our new summertime normal and I love all the time I’ve gotten to spend with my family. We also celebrated a few fun milestones this week (all having to do with the number 3, randomly). It was a great week and I can’t wait for many more like it in the next few months!
1) Scary House Projects
Our house backs up to a creek and some woods, a view that I love to see out of our back window. The only downside is that the three big trees we had in our backyard stopped the yard from getting any sun and it was pretty much a constant mud-pit. This past weekend Jordan had two friends with some experience in this kind of thing come help him to cut them down. They were rigging all sorts of ladders, ropes, harnesses and chainsaws into the trees, and I hung out in the house with Caleb as they worked (only to be startled every once in a while by a giant branch falling and shaking the earth beneath our feet). It was scary to watch the boys up so high in the trees but they did a great job and our yard looks so much brighter now that those trees were gone. We have all sorts of dreams to make this backyard a more livable space and are so grateful to those friends for coming to clear it all out!
