Howdy friends.
Welp, we officially became homeowners last Monday.

And Chris has been working to beat the band since. I knew it was going to be busy, but things have been insane of late. Chris comes home after work to change clothes, sometimes eats dinner and then is over at the new house until wee AM hours, snatches a little sleep here and heads back to his day job. I can't comprehend this stamina. He's a Power Ranger. The blue one, I think.
I've spent very little time at the new house. Within hours of getting the keys, C had all the carpet out making the house a death by tack strips trap for children. So, the kids can't be over there at all until the new flooring is in. And someone needs to watch them. So, my job is to parent the kids and pack up this house. It's going fairly well, actually. I put the kids in the first box I packed. =) No really, God has been very, very gracious in granting me patience. And C's parents have taken the girls a couple times to give me a chance to help Chris out at the house or go to Best Buy and enjoy(?) a non-interrupted conversation about dishwashers.
In spite of the craziness, Chris was forced to take an afternoon off on Saturday to visit with J&J in from Texas. Here are some pics of the girls from that day:

Anna was dubious as to the bouyancy capabilities of arm floaties, but finally was coaxed to swim to Jonny.

Sonja was frightfully confident. Kind of freaks me out how daring this child is.

See what I mean?

Just kidding. She's not that crazy, thank goodness.

Okay, I've got to get to bed. Another day to get at tomorrow. As soon as I get a chance to be over at the house, I'll take some pics to give you a rough look at our future home.
