Back at it

Hopefully more regularly too. Blogger is still blocked at work, but I've realized how much I miss keeping up with it, so I just need to make time to keep up with it. (Especially since Grampy complained, don't want to be on his bad side, have to maintain my status as the favorite grandchild, heehee)

It's been a busy summer, and its flying by! We took a trip up north over the 4th, that was great! Avery had her first camping trip and did very well, I was more stressed out about it than I needed to be, but it ended up being fine and nice and relaxing. The boys did some fishing, with no luck, and we did some swimming. Then we hung out at Grampy's with the family for a few days, which is always nice. Logan go to play with my cousin Melissa's kids which he enjoys. So overall a good trip!

Logan has enjoyed his summer home with Grannie, but I can tell he's getting antsy, and sassy, so I think he'll be glad when school starts and can be around kids his own age again. Just a few more weeks left. We had to go over to the school a few weeks ago for an assessment, so we got to peek around a little bit.

Avery of course is growing like a weed, 7 months yesterday. She's so very close to crawling, gets herself up on hands and knees and rocks back and forth. It won't be long now, also means we need to get to re-babyproof the house. For the most part its good, just need to get some of Logan' smaller toys put up in his room.

And it always seems there's projects around the house to do, that's never ending. We got new laminate flooring put down in the living room a few weeks and it looks great, very happy with it. We've only lived in the house for a little over 3 years, and the carptet was just worn out, really didn't want Avery crawling around on it. Guess two dogs and two boys does that:)

Things at work are better for me, I just within the last few weeks, made a switch to the civil engineering department, which is where I really enjoy being. They've even let me work on some design elements here and there. Things at work are so-so for Richard, he got moved to the Construction Inspection department, since there is zero work in the survey department. So he's a little disappointed to not be working in his field, but thankful to have a job just the same. Plus he seems to really be enjoying the new group of people he works with. Plus he's guaranteed to be home every night, woohoo!

Well, that's all for now I guess, hope everyone is having a good summer!
