Time and Money Hogs...

Christian's 1st Day
Our finished product & favorite relief
Almost 2 weeks done with school now, and its amazing the all-encompassing effect of school. It rules our lives. But so far, so good. Christian likes to gloat on not ever having his "card turned"...I guess the equivalant of no warnings. Which, as a mom, I am grateful for...but its funny what he prides himself on!
Anyhow, and our pool. That was quite the project. I will have to get out there and get some pics of our beautiful deck Gav and I built with blood, sweat and tears. It was our happy compromise to an expensive in-ground pool. How nice would it have ben to pay someone to build it all?!! It was pretty cool to see my doctor out there trying to be Mr. handyman. It looks awesome and is super sturdy...so props to Gav!! It is really astounding how much more pleasant Texas heat is when you have an outlet for relief. The pool makes it fun and comfortable to be outside in the heat. Shane has really taken to swimming. He has NO fear (good and bad, huh?!) and loves to kick and paddle. Christian also LOVES the water, but didn't discover his love until later, ~4 years old. Shane is already leaps ahead. He might be our little pro-surfer, afterall! I don't think Gav would mind that at all.

Posted 6:04am--you really are up early! Looks like you guys are doing great. And Gavin built a deck?! No way-I won't believe it until I see the pics! I understand that you guys were playing in the pool instead of coming out to the wedding--lol. You were very missed-everyone was asking about you. I love this blog idea, tiffany and I may have to start our own! I love you guys, we'll talk sooner than later:)

Glad you got the pool/deck finished. Hopefully you'll enjoy your new home even more now that the heat won't be SOOO unbearable! It's great to see you guys - if only in pics and video. Keep us posted!

You're right! I NEVER thought you would be a Texan??!! Ye-hah!! And for one that HATED the Phoenix heat, it's funny that you live in pure 100% humidity now....
