Well, this is it. The last time I’ll blog before we head off to Haiti! 😀
Y’all, I have some reeeeeeally exciting news to share with you today. It involves two more people moving in with us in a few months.
And when I say “moving in with us”, I mean, they’re building an addition that will be attached to our house!
And when I say “an addition”, I mean a barn! Like this:
And when I say “two more people”, I mean Kevin’s cute mom and dad!
This has been in the works for the past year or so, but now that Jim and Katie are ready to break ground next month, I figured it was time to share the good news!
I’m looking forward to blogging (and vlogging!) about the whole process as it comes together. And speaking of vlogging, here’s a little video we put together to show you exactly where the barn will sit, and to tell you a little more about it…
I forgot to mention that their barn will be one-story high, and 46′ feet long x 16′ wide. For perspective: our current house is 42′ long x 18′ wide, so they’ll be pretty similar in size with the exception of our second story.
And, yes, the barn will cover our entire backyard, but don’t worry, we have lots of room to roam around our little lakeside community, and Sweet P will have plenty of outdoor places to play…

The neighborhood always puts really fun activities together for the kids all throughout the year, too. These are two of my favs:
Chalk on the Walk…
Secret: Every year I want to seal their drawings with polyurethane before they fade or wash away! 😀
Back To School Bash…
Think: whip cream “pies”, and LOTS of sprinklers- LOL! 😀
So, there ya have it! It’s going to be a busy few months around here, but I’m hoping Mama Katie is up for some “Katie’s Kitchen” vlog segments once she’s all settled in! Wouldn’t that be fun? 😀 (Say yes so I can tell her we ALL think it would be fun. 😉 (This Katie clip still cracks me up: plomp) 😀
Alright, y’all. Let’s connect in the comment section this weekend…and I’ll look forward to giving you an update on Sweet P from Haiti next week!
