Hanging in there....

Continuing life at the ranch....

It's becoming always exciting! I'd have to say we are a pretty healthy family, for the most part... but not accident free. I never said that.

We are crazy finishing projects around here - pictures are sure to follow! I'm just not quite organized or techy enough to get them on here all at once, so they will be coming....

So our "powder room" bathroom is shaping up really nicely, and we are using old barn wood on the walls, which includes some real nice long, rusty nails! So Sam was busy getting them installed the other day, when Gabe comes crying wailing into the house. My 2 year old Cassia came in to interpret. Isn't that nice of her? "Ummm, Gabe hoit he-self rearry bad." You think? As he was walking in, he was leaving a trail of blood and I don't know about you, while you are worried about what might have happened, you are also thinking - I don't really want to try to get blood out of the carpet - so he got carried in and luckily Sam was home. I don't really like blood. Finally he got ahold of himself enough to let us know that he stepped on a rusty nail.... Nice.... So he and I headed in to make sure his tetnus was up to date - which he had just one shot left, so he's doing great!

Then the next week came....

We've got this deck and we've been working on it for two whole months. And most of that time it was just the frame with no floor boards. But we have our second story walk right out onto it and there has always been a door there. So I know it's bad, but Gabe just climbs all over it and he does fine. It's not super high off the ground so I can touch the bottom of it when I'm standing on the ground. Well, just this weekend, we had some dear friends over for dinner and Mike offered to come back and finish our deck! What!?! So awesome!!! So he came in on Monday and worked on it, Tuesday, he started getting floor boards down, so now you can walk across part of it! And then I heard it... the wailing again... And the interpreter made it in first "Ummmm, Gabe just fell off da deck." Oh Lordy! Here comes Gabe holding his arm and screaming quite a bit more than the rusty nail incident, so I knew it was bad. Meanwhile Micah was screaming for dinner and it was getting late. So Sam took him in and he came home sporting a nice little splint!

So that's about how things are going for us these days! Stay tuned for those promised pictures!
