My makeshift office - a footstool piled with building materials and drawings and things. At the end of the night, the laptop gets folded up and balanced atop.
Closed on the land! And big boy's half birthday, so we celebrated in high style - bbq. We went to the closest non-pizza restaurant to the land, which is about 2 towns away. It's pretty remote where we are.
The girl was concentrating on opening shelled peanuts. Very proud of herself.
We got a new truck. So of course we all loaded up and went to get ice cream. Funny enough, we got there and realized we only had $4.83 to our names. We split two kiddie sizes (and got two cones and recreated eensy weensy tiny cones for the kids) but it all worked out. Maybe we're just teaching portion control. ;o)
Recently I decided to let the kids use up all of my random art supplies (well, except for the 84 exacto blades I have from model making days). Today it was some tubes of watercolor paint. I stick the kids on the porch among the recycling and camping supplies.
While driving around recently, we saw this siding. And really dig it. So I took this photo, so that we could research when we got home. And found it (the vertical ribs were the tell-tale sign) - it's HardieShingle, which is made from concrete. I think we've found our siding.
