Spring with the Moodys and House Work

Spring with the Moodys went to our proofreader today! The proofreader will have it for  three weeks. I then have two weeks to work through the edits and prepare the book for the final format.

The house work is coming along! Last Thursday afternoon, the foundation walls were poured. The whole family was out to watch the exciting event—it was so wonderful to see the house really taking shape. Mary was our little baker last week and supplied the workmen with cookies and brownies.

Today, Dad rented a TracHoe so that we could dig a trench for the sewer and drainage. While Dad, John, and Joseph worked on the trench, Christopher, Anna, Jesse, and Mary waterproofed the outside foundation walls (looks like blue paint!). There is still a lot of work to be done tomorrow; please pray for the guys’ strength and that the job will get done! As soon as our part is done, we’ll turn it over to the contractors who will do the flat work (i.e. basement floor, etc), and then framing the house in. We’ll take it over after that :-).

Joyfully His,

Sarah

Honey found a steak bone and was happy to hold onto it. We finally convinced her to “drop it” with dog biscuits….
