Hard to believe that we are nearing the end of the summer. August! Wow! Can you believe it? It always seems that once the 4th of July passes the summer just flies on by. In some ways we are all excited to see the summer end so that fall can come and we can move into our new house. Other days it is sad to see the long, warm days end. The end of summer also means we are one step closer to Lily's 3rd birthday. We can't believe that she will 3 already. As Matt said the other night, "It's just not right!". :) Time just goes so quickly.
This week has been an eventful one in some ways and uneventful in others. Unfortunately we have not had any showings this week so no progress with that. The contractor did come in to look at the spiral staircase for one possible buyer but no word on that yet. We will probably hear more about that next week.
We had our pre dry wall walk thru today and that went well. It was really neat to see all of the electrical wiring done already. They will start doing the dry wall later next week. It has gone so quickly. Stay tuned for Monday's post with pics of the progress from the past week.
On an exciting note, our very stubborn and determined little girl decided this week she was ready to start to go on the potty. Now, we are by NO MEANS potty trained but it is progress. Until this week she was in tears with the words "potty" or "big girl pants" so things are definitely moving in the right direction. She has gone a number of times and continues to show a lot of interest. YAY!! Our big girl is growing up!
So, as August begins I hope everyone savors the last precious moments of summer and gets ready for the cooler fall days ahead. I know we are excited to see the changing of the leaves in our new backyard and to buy a pumpkin for our front step. But...we won't rush things yet. Still more time for the pool and the beach! ENJOY!
