I thought summer was supposed to bring a lazy pace.  I'm sure you can tell from the lack of posts that we've been busy.  Lots going on with the new job, VBS, a ton of baseball games for Aaron, getting all of Owen's summer school work done and still trying to find time to play, build a new fort and makeover bedrooms.

The kids birthday present is a new fort in the backyard.  They've gotten into the Magic Treehouse books this summer and cannot wait for their fort to be done.  Aaron designed it and is working as hard as he can to get it all finished up for them.  I was terrified climbing up on the platform to put the first wall up...Aaron got quite the laugh, but I was so scared that I couldn't even stand up.  Once the first wall was up, I was much better.
Here is Anderson being a helper.  

And some progress pics...

I have some others that I can't get to load right now...I will add later.

We've also been updating the kids rooms.  Anderson loves his new big boy bed.  I'll post photo tours of their rooms when they are finished...but we are loving what is completed so far.

Sleeping in his old bed...he went to bed fully clothed, but this is how he fell asleep.

And sleeping in his new big boy bed for the first time...

And then a funny from Anderson...I reminded him to say yes ma'am and he replied, 'I ran out of ma'ams, I just have yeses.'
