friday morning thoughts

1 // So it looks like we actually have a (tentative) closing date on the new house! One month from today. I'm so excited and really want to start getting everything packed up. So far, I packed one big box of toys about 2 months ago, and this morning sealed up a box of my shoes. At this rate, I'll be done in about a century! :)

2 // I've been working on a pair of chairs for a friend and they are thiiiiis close to being done! They're so bright and cheery.

3 // We officially have a budding artist on our hands. A few weeks ago, Evie started drawing faces on her magna-doodle toy (usually Daddy). I was so surprised and amazed. She would ask us to draw all kinds of animals and different people, but I don't think we've ever sat down and really shown her how to draw a face. Actually, as I'm typing this, I think my mom has! Anyway, she's always sure to include daddy's mustache and beard. :) Here's she's doing a perfect rendering of Hans Hippo. I love it. Now I just need to convince her to do a few pieces on actual paper so I can keep them.

4 // Hubby and Evie have been getting lots of sun and pool time this summer. Me? Notsomuch. I'm typically so dark by now! These days if I make it to the pool, you'll find me huddled under a hat,  sunglasses and big umbrella. Oy. I believe this is what's called "turning into your mother". ;) Evie Girl has been loving the pool this year, which I'm so happy about. We practice her swimming and she loves to jump to us off the side of the pool and sometimes off the diving board!

5 // We recently found out that my grandparents and some aunts and a cousin will be visiting in my hometown next month. Evie and I are planning to drive up to see everyone. I'm excited, since we haven't been out of town in a while, and- of course- to see all our family. I know they only really want to see my girl. But that's okay, I know she'll keep everyone entertained and on their toes! Happy Friday!
