A slightly different To Do List

This one has no chores! No repairs! Nothing but fun stuff. I am loving this blog and all of its wonderful ideas. We decided that since hubby will be busy pretty much every day this summer with his day job, plus house building, we needed to find things to do. We hit dollarama today for some poster board and made this summer list. So far we just have a few outings planned at places the kids have been before. Hopefully as the weeks go by, they will get a little more creative. Eric added make coffee can ice cream to the list a few minutes ago...see, they'll have a full, fun list in no time. I'm almost embarrassed to admit how excited I'm getting about it all. =o)

From a hole in the ground...

That's all we have so far....a hole...a very very large hole. We do have a whole lot of legwork done so we just wait. The foundation should be poured next week and hubby can start framing. He expects to have the framing, roof/shingles, siding, windows and stone done in 4-6 weeks...less if he gets help but this is the part he wants to do himself. Most of the tradespeople are lined up for the interior work. I am still hoping/praying to be in by October but will be ok if we arent...I HAVE to be in by Christmas though. I already have the place decorated in my head.

This rental is still a hell hole. I think the raid has been working because we dont see as many insects but they're not all gone. The basement apartment has just been rented and I hate having to be seems like I'm constantly hushing someone. I need my house! Luckily, hubby feels the same way so he might just work faster.

Kids are all good. I cant believe my baby will be 6 in a few short weeks. I still havent gotten them all together for a photo shoot but its on my list of things to do...soon.

20 days until school is out. I'm not sure if I'm happy about that. This house is way too small for everyone to be in all day long. There will be many outings this summer. =o)
