School is out in two weeks. Those two weeks are filled with fun field trips to the bowling alley and roller rink and a school play day. We will miss Brinley's teacher. She is AWESOME and AMAZING!
I'm excited about this Summer, mostly because I have projects in my head.
Next week, we will be putting up our wooden picket fence. Which means that I don't have to worry so much about Sarah running into the street. Holy cow, that kid is fast.
Next weekend I REALLY REALLY want to go here:We went last year. It was a blast. I, however, will not be one of the hundreds of women that show up early to stand in line for 2 hours before it opens because I will have my kidlets with me.
In just 3 weeks, we will be in Gearhart, Oregon at this lovely little place:We are all excited for this week long vacation. We haven't rented a house here before, but I've been to the cute little shops and ice cream shop there. Completely opposite of Seaside. Plus, we can drive on the beach.
A week later, Matt and Brinley fly down to Utah for a Family Reunion. Brinley is very excited about flying on a plane and asks me daily how much longer. I'm sad I have to miss it, but my sister, Julie, and I will be shooting the first of 6 weddings this Summer as Madeline James Photography along with senior, family and child portraits too. We are pretty excited.
On my to-do list are :
window boxes and a chicken coop...I WISH!.. but mine will look more like this: Brinley really, really wants a pet but we are allergic to cats (and do not like them anyway) and I would be stuck taking care of a dog (no thank you). So we thought about chickens. They are easy to keep and they produce something useful. We have the perfect space for them too.
I want to get the back section of our RV parking ready for raised garden beds or use the frame of the car canopy to build a large greenhouse, but I'm not sure if it's possible.
Slowly but surely, our little house is becoming OUR home. We are loving it more and more. Now, if we can just get the little baby birds to fly and leave our attic so we can fix the awnings and paint the house.

Oh Arah,
can you be my neighbor?! You'd motivate me to get things done..really, you would. I'll be in WA when you guys are at the beach. I hope I can come out for a day and see you!!

I have a friend in Idaho who got chickens due to the same reasons. Last I heard they were fighting the city council because they had threatened to take their chickens away. pshh. You are so cute!
