We have officially lived in our house for 6 weeks and this summer has absolutely flown by! Here's a little update on what we've been up to these last several weeks.
Kassidy loves to help in the yard! We have plenty of weeding to keep her busy!
We went to "Homerfest", our local town celebration. Kassidy and Chad rode the swings, and Kassidy got to have her face painted. Cameron just smiled from the sidelines this year. :)
Our church walked in the Homer Glen Independence Day parade.
We watched a lot of soccer during the World Cup. Cameron was taking notes for the future.
We went up to Michigan to visit our new niece, Madison! My brother Kyle and his wife Haley had their first in the end of June. She is a doll, and we are so excited to add another baby to my side of the family. :) Kassidy was thrilled that it was a girl!
During our time in Michigan, Kassidy got her first Sea Doo ride. She was ready to take control and loved every minute of it!
A family from our new church gifted us a membership to Brookfield Zoo. We have gone twice already and cannot wait to take advantage of the membership all year long! The kids love it (and so do their parents). :)
My dear husband has been in "project mode" almost every day since we have moved in. He works hard all day at church and then gets a whole list of projects when he's home. I have several pictures that still need to be uploaded, but this is him putting the finishing touches on our new play set for the kids. I found it "free" on Craigslist and he did a fantastic job setting it back up in our yard. He has also hung many, many pictures and artwork pieces around the house, weeded lots of the yard, mows/weedwacks regularly, made a fire pit with old pavers that we repurposed, organized the basement and garage, and the list goes on...
We are feeling more and more settled each day and our project list is shrinking. So far we really enjoy our new home and are adjusting back to life in the midwest. :) We had a great weekend with my parents this past weekend and expect Chad's parents to arrive tonight for a few days. I'm sure I'll have more updates soon!
