Playing catch up...

Yeah, nothing much has been happening while everything has been. Dylan started school, we have had commitments and not enough hasn't been happening at the house while great progress has been made. So first, the house goings on...

The amazing 14 foot high fence that will prevent us from having to acknowledge the apartments behind us - the posts are in:

The most fabulous news comes from the land of Craig's List this week -- we are scoring a 12 ft gate for the driveway tomorrow morning (fingers crossed, don't let me jinx this!) Remember that driveway pic a couple posts ago? The fence will extend from the end of the carport parallel with the house to where the house ends and then this gate will be between the fence and the house, keeping the bad guys out. The deal is pretty good in comparison to retail, so yeah, hope it all goes well in the morning

And now life in general...Dylan started school, no good pics because he and Kolby were being punks. But he did come home to see Granny washing the dogs outside and so that's how he wanted to be washed...he's watched a movie of it over and over:

And I never get cute pics of me and Dyl together, but Jason took a couple silly ones last weekend at the Kellers:

I'll be back on here later this weekend with some driveway progress hopefully - we're cutting driveway tomorrow maybe! Happy weekend!

The house is looking good. That fence is tall, but dont blame you for not wanting to acknowledge the apartments.
