One of the things we look forward to every year is CampQuest, when a large group of people (200ish!) from church camp together in Branson. What a wonderful way to spend a weekend!

Looooove this picture!

Poor Eli...aka Mr. Klutz. He fell FOUR times throughout the weekend. This next picture shows the result of his biggest fall, from the top of the playground onto gravel...

Lots of Progress!

The cabinet guys and carpentry team have been working so hard this week!

Sooooo excited about our dining room. We're painting the top half blue and the bottom half white. I'm a little nervous about the color, but didn't want just boring 'ol tan in the whole house.
The kitchen...WOW! Can't wait to cook in here!

Our master closet...

The left side of the kitchen has a little desk/office area. Through the archway is the hallway that holds the boys' bedrooms, their bathroom, the laundry room, the stairs to go upstairs, and the 'mud room' area you can see with the bench and cabinets...

Left side of the laundry room...

Right side of the laundry room... (this room and the workout room will be a light green)

They will start painting tomorrow, which should take a week. I think they're going to pour the back patio on Saturday (which we'll be placing our handprints in!). Once the paint is done they'll spend a week doing tile and granite. We're still looking at the end of October for being finished. Hooray!!!!

So Handsome...

House Stuff

Here's the granite we picked out, along with a sample of our cabinets:
The brick and stone is almost done...

Drywall and knock-down got finished on Friday, doors were all installed on Saturday...

They are working on trim this weekend and will start installing the cabinets on Tuesday. They'll paint as soon as the cabinets are done.

We're in the home stretch!!!

Keira's 6th birthday

We had an awesome pool party for Keira's birthday. My camera died after just a few pictues, so this is all I got!
