***Insanely LONG post ahead***

I just realized it has been 2 1/2 months since my last post. To say our lives have been busy would be a complete UNDERstatement. So there, there is my excuse!

The kitchen has been what has taken up most, if not all, of our free time. We are in the home stretch. We are still waiting on an appliance, finish the kick-plate, and still have to tile our backsplash. Other than that, we are SOOO close to being done.
Here are some before and after photos:








So, there, that's been our HUGE undertaking for the past 3 1/2 months...

School's out:

The kids (and me) have been enjoying the summer. Owen graduated from Kindergarten and Lilly finished 1st grade.

Owen with Miss Williams--the best kindergarten teacher EVER! Lilly and Owen were both lucky enough to have her!

P.S. I completely embarassed myself and cried at Owen's graduation. We have worked so stinkin' hard at getting him to where he is today...regular kindergarten...and he DID IT!

Lilly with Mrs. Baker--she will be Owen's 1st grade teacher next year!

Cardinals T-ball:

Owen had a great 1st season of T-ball this year. He LOVE, LOVE, LOVED it! His smile was pricless every game and practice. Clarke helped with the coaching this year. They had a blast together!

I left out a bunch...but there's the short version of what we've been doing for the past 2 1/2 months!
