space and mountains. now these really are two of my favorite things!
wow. this is just another reason not to like water.
Things have been crazy around here. There are 16 days of school left for me. Jason's work is coming into its "busy season" aka everyone else's "drinking season." Around the house we've been doing lots of yard work, some decorating, cleaning, and general spring time things. We've become addicted to The Office. Thanks to our Netflix account and our Wii, we have been able to watch seasons 1 - 5 from the comfort of our coach over the last month. Thes series is currently on season 6 so we're almost caught up.
As summer is coming up I'm getting excited at the prospect of doing 'a lot of nothing.' Well, that isn't entirely true...but much more relaxing than past summers :) We're planning on building a deck and awning on June 6th with Foreman Oakes (my dad) running the show! We are very excited about this and hoping the weather cooperates.
That is it for now. I still owe stories about Mother's Day and updated house pictures! Phew...
Tootles for now!
