Painting pics...

Here you go Jen. You have been wanting to see some pictures...these are for you... :)
This is what it looks like right now. I am officially calling it the chocolate and peanut butter walls....ha! oh my!! It really does look a lot better than what was there before (from the previous owners).

We are working on getting the tv's and electronis hooked back up now as well as the furniture back in place.

Little by little...

This long process is slowly but surely coming along...little by little. The painting that is. We started back in mid January and are just now down to the last few walls to be done. Hopefully by next week we will have it all complete. Our weeks are so full and packed with church and sports (oh, too) that we are doing most of the work late at night after the kids are in bed. I have had to take a few nights off and actually go to bed early as the late nights were starting to get to me. The last thing I need right now is to get circle of germs for me. No thank you!

Soccer in full swing with a little bit of a hockey break

We have had a little more time at home the past few weeks with a little break from hockey. The ice rink that Tyler plays at was having tournaments the past several weeks so they canceled all the house league games for a short time. Tyler starts back this Friday, plays 5 more games then will be on to the next season.

In the mean time, we have been spending more time on the soocer field. Kyle has played 3 games so far. His team lost the first game but won the other two. Their first win was 3-1 and the second win was 4-1. In each of the two games Kyle scored 3 goals! He was so excited! In addition to the league he is playing in right now, he is also participating in some soccer training and skills classes with a professional soccer trainer out here. He is on the soccer field 4 hours a week right now. It is no wonder why he is scorring all the goals in his game. He hopes to be selected for one of the competative travel teams in the near future. I am not sure I am ready to travel yet. Uuuhhhh.

We have video of him in his games and scoring his goals. I will see if I can get them downloaded to share with you soon.

More Home Improvement

I have not been around much in the Blog world due to ALL my extra time being taken up with painting. We decided that we were going to totally redue all the color in our house. So, all the walls are getting a new fresh coat of paint, and yes we are doing it all ourselves. Whew! It is a big job. I will try and post pictures after we get it all done.
