-got a driveway! can drive on it sometime this weekend.
-will most likely have a backyard early next week.
-ari is a bit sick.. fever. think its his molars. don't really know.
-work is busy.. wrapping up the school year and preparing for next. i am sort of attached to this job.. sad that its a term. i love working there.
-getting ready for our family vacation trip with friends to Minneapolis. Cannot wait for Ikea!
-started running 4 times a week. getting up at 6:30 isn't so hard and I am exceeding any expectations I had for myself.. ran over a mile today (which is huge in my world)
-trying new things. won't divulge just yet. but proud of myself.
-creating more again lately. gotten a few layouts done and some house projects in the works.
-a & n growing more and more everyday especially with their vocabulary it blows me away today i was on the phone and ari imitated every word i said.. i seem to use the word whatever a lot.
-general happiness.
and for some picture fun. this is what we play lots (looks like daddy!) whoa! the best thing ever!
disclaimer: did not take the last two shots but thought i could post them because my kids are in them - thanks lisa!

I love Ikea!!! I'm going to Ikea in October when we go to Germany! Can't wait!

I saw your nice driveway... we will get ours done in the next couple of weeks. Our inside walls are done and the windows are being put in right now. So exciting! We are hoping to move in September

good job with the running! it can be a love-hate relationship but i hope that you are feeling mostly love when you run! i joined a "learn to run" group 5 years ago and i haven't stopped running since - although there have been many painful runs where i wonder why i torture myself. but then you feel like a million bucks when it's over.
keep up the good work - in all areas of you life! love you, ev

Congrats on running 4 times a week!!! That's a great achievement. I agree with Ev (and I'm sure you do too) - you feel so good after a run.

Love you,

wtg on the running front! I know I never thought I could run a mile either. But once you realize you can do it, it's an amazing feeling.
