home again

home again to our little corner of the world

What a busy summer we've had so far...3 trips down to California and one week in Iowa and Minnesota. My kids and I spent last week  in California for "Cousin Camp." Phil had to work, so he stayed behind. We arrived home last night and it felt so good to pull into our driveway. Little did I know, he was very busy while we were away. I was shocked when I saw this:

Phil put black shutters up around the downstairs windows, painted the front door black and painted the trim around the upstairs windows. Wow! I had no idea he had done this!

Here's a "before" picture. The door (which is open in this picture) used to be white.

Thank you Phil for reading "our girl's heart". I just love how you listen to her and strive to make your family happen in God's eyes.
