As far as the house goes. It's still just a pile of dirt, but almost a perfectly prepared pile of dirt. We've signed contracts and now things are going through all the legal stages and hopefully we'll be pouring concrete within a month.
I got to hang out with all of my nephews at once a week or two ago and lets face it, they're pretty much they cutest nephews on the planet so here's some pictures.

We purchased more chickens. These are strictly meat birds, meaning we plan to eat them. We got 4 that mature really quick and will be ready to eat in about 6 more weeks and 2 that will be ready in 14 weeks. They are quickly running out of room so Ben is going to have to come up with a solution since the big chickens will kill them if they fraternize together.
A giant smiths maple bar from my work crew for my birthday. It was AWESOME.
We had a rather nasty wind storm here yesterday. Elsewhere it was probably raining, we got dust.
Just a cute one of Henry I forgot I had taken. My picture spaces are quickly being taken over by pictures of my nephews. Oh how I adore them all!

After church we barbecued some pork chops. My Ben makes a mean pork chop.
We took a walk with these girls. They got nice and muddy. (This photo is pre-muddy)
Then Ben had a double header softball game. He hit a triple right after this picture. Woot woot!
It was a relaxing, refreshing, fun afternoon!

This is what humidty does to my hair. The white girl afro.
This is me unsuccessfully paddleboarding.
This is me successfully paddleboarding. It's much easier to maneuver while on your knees but I wanted to be cool so I tried to stand up for a while. I eventaully had enough of dunking myself and stuck to kneeling.
Beautiful view from where we snorkeled and paddelboarded.
Beach bums! Lots of reading and sunbathing.
Our view everyday.
Walking down the beach
Ben reading....the only time he really reads books is on vacation. He'd rather read things on how to do his gunsmithing or read a catalog to see how much things cost. I like stories, he likes to read for information.
I kind of felt like a queen in this bed.Sitting in LAX, we arrived at long term parking at 6:00 a.m., got to the airport, got our tickets and checked in luggage, through security to our gate, in 25 minutes! That has to be some kind of record, thus we were reallllyyyy early and had time to kill.

The shed obviously gets dirty quite easily but also we have the tendency to put things away hastily. Thus we end up with a very dusty and fluttery shed that I deal with about once a year. Partially because its a bear to clean out and partially because if you clean it during summer you risk heat stroke. Well yesterday I did my Rocky dance and gave myself a pat on the back because that sucker is clean. There's so much more room in there! I even installed hooks and hung our bikes up which had previously been in the extra bedroom. Hopefully I can keep it somewhat organized now because, letsbe honest, dirt is just a fact of life out here.
9h the extra bedroom. I've been wanting to clean it out since......well since we moved in. And yes that will be three years ago this june. It became the room that we chuck anything that doesn't have a place/needs to go to goodwill. I've been seriously lacking in motivation and I got the kick in the pants I needed. Mom and Dad Fast were getting rid of a mattress and offered it to us. Free mattress, quite new, ummmm yes! This meant cleaning that room so we could put it in there. So my new car came in quite handy with the hauling power to take most of my goodwill bound stuff out and I removed the bikes to the shed. Viola! No the bed doesn't have sheets or really anything but that just details sheesh. The desk you se will also be going to goodwill. Its Bens Walmart special from college. The chair is going as well because it was my parents then mine and its in serious need of some reinforcing and reupholstering that I deemed not worth it to me. If anyone wants it they can have it! So I'm feeling quite good right now because to major problem areas are under control, if only momentarily.
