Wylie and I got in behind Halle and her mom, so of course they had to get their picture taken together. I am sure the other parents waiting in line were not happy..
Here is Wylie with her teacher Mrs. Julie. Before bed the other night Wylie gave Josh a notebook and pen and told him to write down what she said and here it is: "Dear Mrs. Julie, I miss you very much. I hope you have a nice life. Love, Wylie" The next day Wylie put it in the mailbox. She told me she had to send it, because she really missed her!

Did I say good pictures? Well, at least I got some good ones of Wylie. Gunnar has to be in the right mood for me to get a good picture. I try to tell him just to ignore me, but he still doesn't want is picture taken.
Wylie is good at letting me take a pictures.
Gunnar enjoyed the Wolverine movie and a Carmel shake at Dairy Queen on Sunday.

Oh yes! I am sure you have always dreamed of owning a palace like this! She is a beauty! Josh and I have wanted her since we moved to Cherryvale, mainly because it's right next door to our house. The house as been empty for over 7 years...Josh and I have lived in Cherryvale almost 3 years now, and who wouldn't enjoy seeing that jewel outside your doorstep everyday?
The plan is to first tear the house down and clean up some of the over-growth. The second is to enjoy the space, it actually has two lots. We plan on getting Gunnar and Wylie's swing set back from the farm and some friends of ours are giving us their trampoline, since their daughters have out grown it. Third, is to eventually build a shop for Josh, a two car garage, and family or master suite. I plan on posting some pictures of the tear down process, which we are hoping with be within the month.This is the view of the house from across the street. As you can tell there is a lot of over growth. We plan on leaving most of the mature trees. Josh and Gunnar have their eye on one that might work for a tree house.
This is the empty lot next door that comes with the house. Nico dog is going to love it.
I have to say that I am on a role with this blogging thing! I have been pretty busy lately and not feeling so well, which makes it hard to take pictures, which makes it even harder for me to blog. I am going to make the time to take more pictures and blog. My strategy has been to download pictures in one day and then write the next day and it seems to be working. I enjoy taking pictures...it's probably my main creative outlet. I am hoping that being more creative might make me "feel better".
