Since the Cavalry Arrived


Ashley at the Rock RanchYes, I’m alive. I haven’t posted since Aunt Ashley (my sister) moved in! And can I just say, I LOVE having another wife around (ha ha). She is extraordinarily popular with the boys, too. She’s popular to the point that I had to put stickers on our hall clock and tell Ian not to go snuggle with her in the morning until the small hand is between the stickers. She’s still looking for her Cardiovascular Sonographer job, but I’m not in a huge hurry to send her off each day. The boys and I love her company and she’s a huge help. We’re thrilled she decided to move up from Florida.

We’ve been busy shifting things around in the house to give Ashley some living space, doing projects with the boys and taking interesting day trips.

The Playroom
Yay! I cleaned the playroom!

So that’s the highlights of our last month. I’ll have more “home schooly” stuff to add at another time.
