Loving the progress on the house! It's so exciting to stop by a few times a week on my way home from work and see the changes.

On another positive note, got a phone call tonight that Alena got into the preschool of our choice!! YAY!! Now, if I could only get her to understand that it doesn't start tomorrow! She is so excited. :)

Things are moving along with the house! The foundation is done, lumber was delivered today to start framing, the roofer is lined up for next week and they're doing a nice job clearing around the house.
There are lots of cedar trees on the property, so we asked that they leave as many as possible, undisturbed.

Sophia was out of school all last week with a pretty bad case of strep, but is back to her old self. Alena is doing just fine. She has moved up to #1 on the preschool waiting list, so we have our fingers crossed!

Denise and I held a nice Longaberger Open House on Saturday. Definitely increase my itch to take a road trip to Ohio. :-/

Oh, happy day!

Yay! The day has finally come! They broke ground on the new house on Thursday. They rough grated the driveway and filled in, leveled and staked where the house will be! Fred and I walked back there on Friday, looked around and took some starting pictures.
It's just so exciting after all this time!!
In a year and a half, we sold our house, moved into my parent's house, made selections on the new house, sold my parent's house, found a house to lease and moved into that, fought a Planning Board tooth & nail and then changed all of our selections on the new house because so much time has passed! Haha!

Alena is continuing to work hard on her potty training while she watches Noggin and plays Wii. =]
We are still working hard on getting her into preschool! We are on a waiting list for our first choice, have two open houses to attend over the next couple of weeks and I'm checking out another this week.

Sophia just had a week of state tests at school and they finished it off with a big ice cream party yesterday. She also took part in International Day today with her Girl Scout troop. France was their country this year. She's also been keeping busy with a new pen-pal! I made a great online friend from Kansas a few years ago and she has a little girl Soph's age. They are having so much fun with it. Everything has become so computer oriented, so it makes me happy to see them doing this.
She also made friends with two sisters that are here on the farm every weekend with their parents who have a couple of horses. They've really been enjoying running all over this place and Sophia has totally taken on the "farm girl look". LOL
"Porkchop", the potbelly pig is now venturing out of his stall each day with the warmer weather. Alena LOVES him. =]
The owner's horse "Buttercup", roams free on the farm during the day. Last week she followed me back and forth, from my van to the house with my groceries! It was hilarious!

Denise and I are planning a couple of Longaberger associated road trips that I am really looking forward to!
It's almost Spring!!!
