Hello again everybody!  My two oldest started school on Monday, so now I have a short break during nap time to check my email and the blog.  Sarah started 4th grade and Molly started 2nd, when I started here Sarah was in preschool and Molly was home with me all day.  I will be five years next week that I have nannied for Sarah and Molly.  They started a new school this year, luckily it is the same one my sister works at, so they get to see her and that made the transition easier for them. 

At the house, things are moving along slowly.  I can't complain much because Ivan has been working 6-7 days a week for at least the last month.  This weekend Ivan actually gets Saturday AND Sunday night off, so he is going to replace the stairs.  Unfortunately that is not something that we planned on doing in the begining, but oh well, the stairs do need to replaced sometime.  The first floor is done except for flooring and trim.  The second floor is a bit more behind.  The study is done (except for the trim and light fixure), and the loft and one of the bedrooms are painted.  We just put the casing and trim on the three windows in the dinning room.  They look really nice! 

Soon we will be getting new appliances in the kitchen, we just have to schedule a delivery date.  We are getting a new fridge, a dishwasher, an over the stove microwave/hood, and a stove.  I can't wait until I can load the dishwasher instead of having to wash everything by hand!

Well, back to work,

Nice to have you back on the Blog.
We were hoping to keep taking pics
of the progress but don't get there
nearly as often as would like.

On Wed. we got hooked to high speed
internet. Wow, certainly is faster
than what we've had since we got
this computer when we moved here.

Wonder how long it will take to post a picture. It was 6-8 min.
before! dk

Sounds like awesome progress over there! Isn't it just so much more fun when we have to wait a while for things? The appreciation of accomplishment grows by leaps and bounds! Looking forward to pictures. :)

I told Shawn for years that I didn't want a dishwasher. Not sure what I was thinking. I agree, it is marvelous to load dishes rather than scrub them by hand!!!! How exciting!
