Happy September!

I really can't believe that it is September already!
Summer has flown by!
Now I'm happily ushering in my favorite time of year!

We had such a fun weekend with Aunt Kelley, Uncle Chuck, McKenna, Cassidy, Meemom and Papa Bob! They all arrived around 4pm on Friday afternoon. And we had a delightful visit with them through Sunday afternoon. Thank you guys!

Saturday the girls and Ted:) loaded up in to the van and hit the road garage saleing. Since it was Labor Day weekend, there were lots of sales to be found! We found some good ones, and some not-so-good ones!

Then Sunday we went to church and out to Plaza Jalisco for lunch. Yumm! That afternoon, as Chuck, Kelley, McKenna and Cassidy headed back to Hillsboro, the rest of us girls did some more garage saleing.

On Monday, Labor Day, we headed out as a family to run some errands. We were on a mission to find another carport canopy for a winter shelter for the animals. As it turned out, Costco was closed for Labor Day:( so we weren't able to see if they had one.

On Tuesday morning, I called all the Costco's in the area . . . and they were all sold out! So after piano lessons, we drove all the way to Tacoma to get one!

Wednesday we tried to get back into the swing of our normal school schedule.

And now, with our long-awaited decision to stay here in this house, we are anxious to begin some projects we have been wanting to do for four years, but put off, thinking we may not be staying here. On the immediate horizon is erecting a fence for a dog run to keep the dogs safe and from visiting our neighbors all the time, planting a few trees and bulbs, and putting up of the canopy for the farm animals. We may even start clearing a space for a garden:)

Tomorrow we head out early to gather a few of these supplies from Home Depot before spending the day at the Puyallup fair. That way, come early Saturday morning, we'll be able to tackle these projects and hopefully make some good headway!
