Backyard Makeover

When we started our addition 3 years ago, we had a fairly nice backyard. Nothing too special. We had a used swing set, a small garden space for veggies along with a few other small gardens and a nice green lawn. A couple of days before Owain was born we broke ground and had...

Wednesday is Weigh Day for Wing Nut. He as been doing well for the most part. He gained a lot of weight at the very start, I am guessing that it is because he was so far underweight. A few weeks ago I was disappointed when he didn’t gain any weight. And I am...

We opened up the addition last year in June. It wasn’t done, but it was done enough to move in. The kids had their rooms painted, but no base boards, the light fixtures were the cheap utility lights that are meant for the attic or basement. The closets were not finished, with no doors...

I didn’t even get a chance to really look at the photos of the mess that my kids made last night. They turned out better than I thought, lol. I love the look on E Nut’s face as he is rushing to get the water cleaned up. There are a few spots around walls...

Starting The Framing on Our Addition

Within a few weeks of Wee Nut coming home from the hospital, we started to get to work on the addition.  There were mounds of dirt from the excavator and gravel all over the back yard and the kids were calling it their Indiana Jones Pit. They had a great time climbing all over...

The Beginning of Building Our Addition

The week before Owain was born, we broke ground on the addition on the back of our house. I designed it, and spent over a year planning for it. I love remodeling, and designing this house to be my perfect homeschool haven for my Tribe. When Owain was born we had no idea that...

The Day I Walked Through Walls

Having Some Ducks Over for Lunch

It has been raining for days. DAYS! We had HVAC over today to finish up the heating/cooling in the addition and clean out the vent system in our old ductwork. We have lived in our house for almost 7 years, and have not ever had the ducts cleaned. And by the condition of the...
