I love weekends!  Have I told you that already?!  My favorite part is having Chad around.  I know the boys love it, too.

Friday afternoon I got the treehouse painted!  It looks so much better.  It still needs a roof and some fun things attached to it.  But I am happy with the way it is looking so far.  I am sure it will be a continuous project.

Saturday Chad had to get up early for a dentist appointment. Bleh!  Dentist on a Saturday?!  Ok, whatever!  I ran to the store to pick up a few things for our picnic at church and also some things for a family in our church having a hard time.  Our picnic started at 1130. So we arrived early to help set up.  It was a beautiful day!  I actually got hot!  I guess it’s time to expose my skin to some sun.  Yikes!  We had a great turnout, including some of the newer people at our church.  I love how our church is growing and how we are developing new relationships.  God is at work in our church family!  After the picnic, we came home and did some work around the house and in the yard.

Yesterday was a yucky, rainy day.  After church we went to Menards and bought some plants and seeds for our garden.  That was exciting.  We just need some dry days to get it going.  I went up to Trader Joe’s yesterday afternoon for several items.  I also went to Kmart and took advantage of their double coupons!  That was fun.  I got 5 bags full of stuff for $12, saving over $30.  A lot of it was groceries, so that makes it real good!  I don’t think I will need laundry detergent for a while.  I was able to get 7 bottles of the concentrated kind for under $2!   Yippee!

It’s another rainy day and I’m not feeling real well.  It must be allergies.  :(
