I’m almost at the end of my blogging break. But I thought I’d drop in with some pictures of what’s been happening in my little nook of Indiana.
First, we completed our second porch just before my parents arrived from Pennsylvania. Here are some pictures of us scurrying around to wrap up the project!
The boys all chipped in, holding, fetching, and hammering. It really was an all-out family effort. The little guy even got his own set of tools and tool belt--just his size. Oh my goodness, he was cute! All serious about his work!
We’re so glad we finished in time for Mom and Dad’s visit. It was worth all the late nights hammering away.
Here’s a picture of the finished porch with deck, looking out into the trees.
Mom and Dad are sure enjoying it! And so are we!
The favorite activity is, of course, checkers. I took this picture looking out through the patio door.
We say goodbye to my folks tomorrow morning. They will be leaving in what is looking like some pretty stormy weather, according to the forecasters. We need the rain. But I wish they didn’t have to drive in it. Keep them in your prayers! They plan to break their trip into two days.
Then I’ll be back to find some sort of normal schedule again. And hopping around to see what I’ve been missing with all of you!
