Sorry it's been so long since I last posted but with school being back and all that goes in to getting ready for that I just have been too busy or too tired to blog.
As I thought we weren't lucky enough to escape the rain anymore. We've had rain every day we wanted to work for about three weeks. Sometimes it was heavy, with lighting and thunder, other times it was soft with an hour or two of break in-between. We found that sometimes it can be difficult to be motivated when it's raining, but overall we got some work done and feel like we are still moving in the right direction.
We've closed! Papers signed, last visit to the title company, just waiting for the deed to arrive, but it's all ours!

One of the great things about all the rain is that we were able to see that we really needed gutters. Some mornings we would wake up to puddles in the living room which helped to explain why the subfloor was in such terrible condition. This led to a trip to McCoy's building supply and Olaf and I out in the rain installing gutters.

A few other things done recently...subfloor in the dining room removed, Olaf rehabbed a wheelbarrow we found on the property (saving us over $100), Olaf planted butternut and acorn squash and it's already started to sprout, we found an old Whataburger, discovered Lacy is a mouser, and Olaf ended a week with a surprise for me!
