just stuff

You remember the post about all of Jessica's projects HERE. This is her latest and probably last for now. Life is getting way too busy for her.

She's replacing the boards in our steps that are getting bad. These aren't the steps she built, they were here when we moved in but probably hadn't been waterproofed--at least not well.

She pulled off old boards, put on new boards, and waterproofed with a cedar stain. The color is uneven due to the different ages of the boards.

The new boards that she's adding here were pressure treated and can't be waterproofed for several weeks.

This side is done.

We missed Jasmine's half birthday August 18! It is four days after Jessica's birthday but we celebrated Jessica's over a week early due to her schedule and being out of town so Jasmine's half birthday slipped my mind.

We have new neighbors and it looks like the kids are all going to be friends. Their children still at home are 14, 12 and 4 yrs old. So one is the same age as Adam, the girl is 3 grades ahead of Jasmine so unfortunately in the middle school not elementary and the boy is of course the same age as our twins who are not yet home. They came over just in time to help celebrate Jasmine's half bd. Normally we just have the cake with supper and that's it but we'd also bought some ready-to-bake cookies.

The girls drink their Pepsi out of tea cups.

Playing Ty's Wii.

The boys play pool.

Don't miss my book give away for girl's ages 6-13 on my GIRL'S BLOG.
