I shared these on my personal Facebook page, and a few on the business page, but am really trying to start keeping up with this blog!  One of my favorite things about adding Brooks to our family (posts on him coming soon!) is that the older two are now getting along better than ever. Rangeley’s imagination is being developed quickly as she tries to keep up with Lleyton!  Trust me, they still have their moments – sometimes every 5 minutes – but overall, they are great friends who truly enjoy being with one another and playing together. We will take it as long as we can!

We bought our house close to a year ago and have been slowly making the inside feeling like home. The outside, on the other hand, is a totally different story. We’ve basically just closed our eyes and have been waiting to make it a nice space. We have great space – a huge back yard which is such a blessing, with a long driveway back there (for the city’s access to the pond) that we love because the kids can ride their bikes and play on both areas. The front and backyard was just covered in weeds and needed complete renovation, so once we had the sprinkler system installed we had the whole thing killed and are now seeing green grass everywhere! Yay!!  I’m a huge yard novice so this is all pretty foreign to me and I’m just praying that we have a nice yard for the kids before we have to move again, haha. Before reseeding the grass, we brought in topsoil for a lot of areas and I snagged some photos of the kids playing in the dirt.  It really brought me back to being little and spending all day, everyday, outside!  We are blessed to live in a great community where I feel like that is possible for my own littles.
