Yesterday, Madelyn, Jaxson and I went up to babysit my two youngest nieces while my sister took Eloise to a couple appointments. On our way, we had to stop at Pa's barn because Madelyn feeds one of the horses there. Jax was reading while we waited...
Xavier was with us too (but later we dropped him off at my dad's garage before traveling to my sister's). He works there most days...like an apprentice. He learns how to do things and helps with whatever they need him to do. He loves it. He so wants to be a *man*....although I encourage him to not try to grow up *too* fast! He becomes a teenager in a couple months. This mama isn't ready for that!

We enjoyed spending time at my sister's. I took a couple pictures with my kindle (as I don't have a cell phone that is hooked up with internet or anything fancy). You can see them on my instagram page HERE.
In other news...I am excited to say that Chris got our ceiling fan up in our new living room! That room stays decently cool because the sun doesn't directly shine in it...but the fan makes it even more delightful to be in on the warm summer days!
My aunt gave us a beautiful ceiling fan from her house that she couldn't use anymore. It has a stained glass dome that hangs down and is just lovely. Unfortunately, in our addition, we made our ceilings a normal height so the upstairs was a normal ceiling as well (as opposed to the rest of our house where the downstairs has 9 ft. ceilings and the upstairs ceilings are a bit lower). The new ceiling fan hangs down too low and would only work on our higher ceilings ~ Soooo....Chris took the ceiling fan from our old living room (which is now the school room/library) and put it into the new living room (it doesn't hang down too low). The stained glass ceiling fan from my aunt will go into the school room/library. I will be sure to share it when it is up. :) It's so lovely!
Today, after packing lunches for Chris and the boys (who were all off to work at my dad's garage), I went for a couple mile run. Madelyn went to help at Chris's parents' meat market. So I am here, hanging out laundry, folding laundry, doing dishes and tidying the house. Later this afternoon I am going to head out to my aunt's house, I think, to help her with some organizing!
A productive day today, I think...which is always a good thing. But rest is a good thing too...don't forget that! :) I hope the sun is shining where you are...and that you have a great day ahead ~ the last day of June! I'm so glad you dropped by for a visit! :)
Until next time, Lord willing,
