"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

Week 37

It was good that DaNette Monson posted this picture this week to remind us how far we have come. This was day 1. We hadn't pounded a single nail, drilled a screw, hit our heads, flew a truss, placed a shingle... Nothing. We have come a long way.  Lately it feels like all we do is work, work, work, but we still aren't any closer to moving in.  Flooring is still holding us back and it seems that our June 12 date is likely unreachable. It is disheartening.

Our focus is on landscaping so we can be ready for sod on June 5th. I took Grandna and Paigey down to a nursery in Payson to help me get an idea on flowers and trees we'd like to use. We are not gardeners, and it is safe to say that I was overwhelmed! Paigey helped me figure it out though.
I love some good visual progress, too. 
Amazing what a load of dirt can do! Dallas and I picked up our trees this week. A weeping cherry for the corner by the house and 4 spring snow crabapple trees for the park strip. 
On the inside, the electricians came and finished up and now we have lights! Plus our appliances were delivered and Dallas installed the stove, fridge, and microwave. It's a real house now!
