Our Latest Home Improvement Project

Standard

So this is what we’ve been working on since Memorial Day, and it’s almost there – a yard full of luscious green grass.  Well, it’s grass, and it’s semi-luscious, thanks to the drought; it’s not quite full, but a LOT better than tracking red mud in everytime we played outside with Chloe.  Now, we have to figure out how to keep the wasps out of the grass, or we might have the same problem my friend, Keren, did! 🙂 

Before the grass!

We let it grow for 6 weeks before we cut it the first time.

Hopefully we’re at least helping out the curb appeal some on our little house – but for now, um. . . we gotta go cut the grass. . . 🙂

About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!
