20 lbs Baby!

I have officially lost 20lbs! Slow and steady wins the race! I had a month of no weight loss, due to all sorts of sickness and mayhem, but I'm back on track and almost halfway there:) Yippee!

Our deck is coming along!

We are building a deck on the side of the house to give us direct access to the yard. We have used almost entirely salvaged wood. The posts are about 6ft when standing on the deck, and will have railing in between them. The stairs will be between the 2 posts in the very right hand corner, when looking from the door. The goal is a cozy outdoor room. Here's our progress this weekend:

Homeschool Fun

Today we were studying the artist Rembrandt, who practiced his technique by making faces in a mirror and drawing them. This is our version:) Here are Toby's results:

This is the book we use for our Artist Study, we love it!

What I've been doing since I've been gone...

Where've you been Sara?
Well, driving to Bristol and back and polluting the environment and emptying my bank account.
Well, Frank's Honda Prelude just happened to break its timing belt, and is now good for only parts.
Yikes, what are you going to do?
Well, hopefully find a new/old car soon to save on gas and rejuvenate our bank account.

Onto happier topics, I have also been planning our trip down South. Which leads me to a question. All you who just stop by and don't ever comment, please do! Give me your top tips for being a good guest. And give them to me from your perspective as a hostess. Frank is staying here, but we will be traveling to Atlanta, Brunswick and Tampa and staying with gracious family members and friends who are like family. What should a guest do to make sure they are a blessing, not a burden? Thanks for your help!
