And...We're Back!

Whew! After 44 hours of driving and a week of non-stop ranch house work, we're home. And just in case you noticed the lack of posts, well, an unfortunate collision between my water glass and Asher's foot sent the laptop to its untimely death. So, for a grand total of six days I was not only text free (no cell service on the ranch), but computer free as well. Yes, you heard me. No e-mail, no Facebook, no blogging, no texting, no nothing for a week. And I actually quite enjoyed it- total seclusion has it's perks! How often do you get the chance to escape to the middle of nowhere where the only mode of communication is a land line? And lets face it, nobody knows how to use those things anymore.

But now we're home where we have a working computer...and it's just sitting here...asking to be used. So here I am, excited to get started sharing all our ranch house progress.

Unfortunately, there was no progress made to our landscaping situation. As you can tell, our sandy jungle of a front yard is in need of some major work. But that will have to wait till we're living there.

But as for the flooring, kitchen cabinet installation, painting, and a handful of other things, we made leaps and bounds! Praise Jesus for that. With only short amounts of time to work (basically, a couple of weeks per year) we do our best to make each trip count. And with His provision and a ton of help from Grammy, we accomplished much more than planned! We are truly thankful. So stay tuned for pics of progress and plans, they're coming soon!

P.S. Asher turned six months old during our trip! See his 26 week picture here (6 month and 27 weeks also coming soon!)

P.S.S. Another major answer to prayer was making it through the 44 hours of total driving without a meltdown from Asher. And praise God, he didn't get upset at all on the way. It was a little rougher on the way home, but he still did wonderful overall.
