In 2 Weeks...

My in-laws are leaving today after a two week visit.  I can honestly say that this has been the busiest two weeks in my recent memory- both with projects we've taken on because they were here and the general business of life!

Here's a rundown of what's been happening around here...

a vegetable/cutting garden was created where there was grass
drawers have been fitted with custom bread and vegetable inserts
lots of plants have been planted along with mulch being spread
baseball games have been attended, even in the pouring rain
Al's birthday was celebrated
ballet performances were watched and observations were made in class
plumbing work was accomplished
plants were pruned
two sets of porch stairs were replaced
our town's street fair was walked and enjoyed
day trips were made to find possible fences for the vegetable garden
dinner parties (where the children stayed with their Grandparents) and cookouts were enjoyed
an open pantry was created with marble shelves and simple brackets
walks to school were enjoyed with Al and Marilyn instead of Dad

We so appreciate all the ways that Al and Marilyn help make our my crazy ideas come to life and the time they spend with the children is invaluable!


  1. Can't wait to see pics of your projects!

  2. Love your garden boxes! Just started a Square Foot Garden this year. So neat/tidy.
    Also, I see so much Grandma in your Grace :-)

    1. Christine- I also love how neat and tidy raised beds are!

  3. Whew! Hope you all enjoyed our time as much as I did.
