House Update and other notable News

The house is entering the last couple of weeks and everything is moving along. They finished up the siding today. The sheetrock has been completed and the ceiling shot. We should start seeing cabinets, trim and paint! The driveway has been graded, and is ready to be blacktopped. These are exciting times, for folks that have been living from their suitcase from three months. Here's a huge thank-you for the church folks that have showed us such great hospitality!

Also, if your wondering the tornados were south of the twin cities. They did cancel the night service of Family Camp last due to a tornado warning in the area. Of course I did not get the message until I showed up. All that driving for nothing.

A quick update on the ALuke, yes the "A" is intentional. (My latest nickname, short for Alfred Luke.) He started taking steps last night, he still prefers to crawl, but he is getting there. He is pretty funny to watch, as he closes his eyes when he starts taking steps. He looks like he is waiting for something bad to happen. He also has inherited my climbing abilities as he will climb up anything chairs, and foosball tables.

What Day is it?

The last week and half have been a bit hectic. Anyways I don't have any new pics of the house, but it is coming along. It now has doors and windows, and has been sheetrocked. They started the mudding and taping yesterday, should be done today.

For all interested Luke has not started walking yet. He could if wanted, as he can stand with pulling himself up. His has a couple new things that he like to do. He likes to climb up on the fire place hearth and sit cross legged and look at his books. He looks up now and then to make sure everybody is watching, he is pretty proud of himself. He has also become a dedicated pack rat like Millie. He has a strawberry box that he likes to put all his treasures in and then climb in and sit on them. I am without my watch today because he has packed it off and put it someplace. He tried to get my wallet, but I was able to wrestle that away from him.

Emmy, Seth, and Millie are doing well. They are getting ready for Youth Camp, and Junior Camp. Not sure how excited Emmy is about this, but the other two are excited. Bella is as shaggy as ever, she needs Uncle Anthony to fly out and give her a haircut. I think she is looking forward the most to moving into our house. Well that is all for today!
