Frame it with Thanksgiving!

We are impressed!  You know yesterday how we got our foundation poured? they framed!  We were just sure it would sit around for a week waiting on lumber to be delivered, but nope.  It was there...and they were working!
This was the scene at about 12:30pm:
The north wall goes up!

Honestly, I cried on the way home.  I couldn't believe it!
Seriously, I couldn't believe they were staying on task.  I was excited, and this is totally the best part.  It *feels* like a house now.

So..we decided to go back after dinner.  We took our time, since we didn't know what time they'd finish up.  Here's what we were greeted with:
Holy Guacamole!!  It was the entire downstairs!  My baby likes wood, btw.

I could hardly believe it.  Here's my living room ; )

This is the kitchen.  And the kids playing around the dumpster. ; )

..and these strange pipes in the living room.  There is a small chance that they will fit into the closet space under the stairs?
And we met some neighbors we didn't know!  Mrs. Mary was sooo sweet, and we met another neighbor's son, Peyton.  He was nice too.

Carter wanted to run all around, and Ethan did.  He was on the new dirt pile..and trying to make a 2x4 bridge from the house into the dumpster.  At least they are finding some fun there ; ) Mary Claire made friends with Mrs. Mary, and made her laugh.

I can only pray the building continues to move forward at a steady pace..and we'll be there before we know it. ; )  For now, we are doing well, enjoying our summer time at the temporary house.  We have little to clean, little to mow, no pool to take care of, and not so much to worry about.  I'm going to consider myself thankful!

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
