We are STILL waiting to apply for permits to build our house and have been hearing stories from many people about their difficult building experiences. Their stories help us realize how blessed we are to have my Dad who is a general contractor putting in so much work for us during this "pre-permitting" process. While we wait to build we have two happy goats keeping the blackberries down for us at our property. They love our almost-daily visits and it is fun to bring the kids to play in the straw and feed them kitchen scraps.
It has been glorious being near family. We get together with my parents and grandparents at least weekly for dinner and we see my parents almost everyday. Anellah tells my Mom, "Gram you are my best friend" and Capper announces, "I like Gram, she is my favorite...and Gramps too!" This weekend we are heading to Daniel's parents for a night or two, the kids are JUST as excited to spend time with them. We are also enjoying watching our children spend time with their cousins more often and get to know them better.
