We slept in a little bit this morning, then Josh went to the gym. It was a rough morning to actually get everyone going.
After Josh left for work, I took the kids shopping for Father’s Day gifts. We also stopped at Old Navy to get some summer clothes. It’s almost the end of June and Ashton has finally gotten over wearing jeans! Thank goodness!!! I almost just threw them all away, forcing him to either wear undies or shorts. 🙂 During naps, Emmy and I worked on this puzzle and listened to music. She is a puzzle GENIUS!!! Seriously, soooo smart!!!!
Addie Brower babysat tonight while Josh and I went to the Parade of Homes. We didn’t have a huge desire to go again, we are both kind of overwhelmed by all the homes we had already seen. But it is so good we went. We still saw many great ideas and gained more hope for our own dream house….
Oh, and for journal purposes….On Tuesday, the soil testers went to the lot and dug a hole. They were checking for water and they knew we needed it to be a deep hole for a basement. They called Josh and said “It’s good, you’re all good to go” We were so excited. But on Wednesday, Josh got the letter from the soil testers saying after digging down 6 feet, they saw rust in the soil and stopped digging. So from that letter, the city would NOT approve a basement, even though all of our neighbors have basements. Josh kind of freaked out and let them have it the next day. He is the bomb. So TODAY Josh met them back at the lot to make sure they dug the 20 feet they were SUPPOSED to dig. If Josh hadn’t been there to supervise, they would have done a half-A job again, for sure! The good news….they dug 20 feet and didn’t find water! YEAH HOOO for real this time!!!!!
Josh and I looked at a few houses, then walked to the Saratoga Hot Springs, saw another house, then went to dinner at Chubby’s. I sure do love and NEED my date nights!!!!
