Quick update

Sorry - no pictures this time. We have discovered that we are lacking in the furniture area, so we went to IKEA in Atlanta over the weekend and picked up a few items for the homeschool area. Once we have those assembled, I will post pictures. We were also looking for beds for the kids, but didn't find just the right thing. Right now, they are sleeping on the mattresses from the camper :) When we left PA, Hadden was just a little guy in a little bed (that we got rid of before we moved).

The closing went fairly smoothly last week - we were able to convert from the construction loan to a conventional mortgage. Thankful for that. Now, the time crunch pressure is off. We have a few items that still need attention - I am working on staining the corner posts and railings of the stairs to give the stairs some depth. We don't really like the monochrome palette with walls, ceilings, floors and treads all a similar color. Adding some color to the posts and railings is working to break it up and give some dimension. However, it is somewhat tricky and tedious because the treads are already in place and we don't want the treads stained.

John will be focusing on some additional exterior tasks - front porch, caps for the parapet walls and the tower roof deck. He has some furniture to assemble first :)

All of these tasks will have to wait because John is taking me on a cruise to Cozumel for our 10th Anniversary!!!! We are excited and thankful to be able to get away for a few days and just relax in hopefully warmer weather (it is still unusually cold here). I love you and Happy Anniversary, Honey! Looking forward to as many more as the Lord allows! We are also thankful for friends being willing to watch our treasures (kids) while we are away. They are looking forward to playing with friends, also.

Baseball season has started and is in full swing! Hadden played in a tournament the weekend before last and his team won 1st place for their age group.

Savannah is playing Upward Soccer this spring. This is our first time trying it and after one practice we are both looking forward to a fun season. Upward is a Christian-based soccer program and I am coaching Savannah's team.

Also - please pray for my Mom. She is having some health troubles and is undergoing some tests to determine the source. Please pray for peace of mind for both her and my Dad.
