We’ve been continuing to strip paint off the fireplace, shore up the porch and fend off the critters that want to invade our house. In the meantime, it’s important to stop and remember why we moved in the first place and how fun it is to have people come visit us. On Sunday, our dear friends Johnny and Todd and their amazing kids Cassie and Amir stopped by on their way home from an East Coast tour. They joined my fabulous nieces Lucy and Elly for some football, sidewalk-chalk art drawing and a picnic. A fun day was had by all. Now back to work!
