The Sky

I went out tonight for a bit by myself and it's amazing how a little alone time every now and again can do wonders. I thought this sky was particularly lovely on my drive home.

It's amazing how much kids learn and grow and mature each month. Stella is getting so much better at playing games and sticking w/ tasks. The task part is still pretty brief but it's a noticeably better than previously. It's been raining here the last couple of days and so we haven't been able to go to the park but I've been having such great quality time with her every morning working, ready and playing, it's been great.

We had to be at church at 8 this morning and on our way in we ran into a wild turkey in the parking lot. You never know what you are going to see here. 

This picture is so random but Stella is in on the right side toward the back. We were invited to a cookie party tonight, it was a perfect night to be outside it was warm and we had a great time meeting new people in our ward & Stella couldn't believe we were going to a party devoted to cookies. She kept asking on the way there if we were really going to a party w/ cookies. She fell asleep happy.

Our apt restoration

Today was part 2 of the "Restoration". We had the ceiling painted and mold removed. When we moved into the apt there were some issues which the former tenants really let go. Water stains on the ceiling, mold, leaky faucets, bent screens, A/C unit broken. I've heard they were 2 college students so maybe they were just really busy and didn't notice how bad things had gotten. Your probably wondering why we would even rent something that had so many problems. We were  pretty desperate to find something furnished, short term, in our price range, w/ in driving distance to work. Anyways we are just thrilled over the last few days the apt has been restored to its former glory. ;)

I love the connections the church provides... Instant friends and fun. Our new ward has a music class for kids and then afterward they play in the gym.

The Park

She is getting pretty adventurous these days. Usually the first time she is a little hesitant but once she's mastered a new skill she's good to go.
