Checking out the River

The kids definitely have Seth's curiousity! We stopped at the bridge over the River on the way back from one of Draya's soccer game. The kids loved it! They examined every spider web on the bridge and were fascinated by a carp splashing by the shore below.

Fishing with Hennen

Seth's best buddy from college & his son (Jeremy & Brexton Hennen) came to spend the day with us on Saturday, September 5th! Seth and Jeremy took the 3 kids (no Ryan - he had to nap) out on the boat on Pahoja to do some fishing.... The kids had a blast (they caught so many fish that the kids actually got tired of reeling them in!!!!!)

House - September 09

More and more is being done to make this house feel like our home that we've been planning for so long! Shingles on, arches started in the dining room, window seats put into the kids' bedrooms, upstairs steps built.... It's so fun to see all the progress (especially now that so much is happening on the inside!)

Andraya's First Day of Kindergarten

Andraya had her first day of Kindergarten on August 26th. She was so excited!!! Of course she loved every minute of it (and continues to love it every day she goes!) It's fun for Mom having her right down the hallway where I can sneak peeks and give smiles during the day! She also started piano lessons that same day and seems to really enjoy them as well! AND... 3rd Soccer season is a charmer! Draya scored her first soccer goal last Saturday (August 29th) and was SO HAPPY!!!!
Also, I suppose we should get used to being first for everything with this "Ba" last name.... Andraya got to be the first one in her class to bring treats and to have the "Sharing Bag." She decided to bring Mia (her American Girl Doll), and of course they had to dress alike!!! And next week we're the first ones to have the "Word of the Week." (She has to learn the word AUTHOR and explain it to her class!!!!) Fun, Fun, Fun!!!!!

Omaha Zoo

We decided to take one last summer trip to the Omaha Zoo. The kids had a blast! They loved seeing all of the animals and staying in the hotel (swimming and watching Monsters Versus Aliens).

House - Middle August

Well, it's starting to look like OUR house (the one in the plans!) We've really only had one set-back... the rain "ruined" some of our roof sheeting (it started to warp or buckle), so it was decided to tear off the entire roof and start over! Better now than later, right!!!! Estimated move-in day....???????

Lewis Cousins - Great Grandpa Bob and Grandma Rita with all the great-grandkids. Too many names to mention. All of my siblings' kids except for my cousin Jeff's two - Isabelle and Aleks. We had a Lewis get-together at my Uncle Alan's and Aunt Kathy's house north of Spring Creek Golf Course.

Bahnson Cousins - Andraya holding River (Laura's), Ryan, Dylan holding baby Damon (both Chelsea's), and Benjamin. We all went to Minerva's to celebrate Ashlee's last night home. We miss her so much!

It's Coming Along...

Well, we're getting further! Finally some wood! I think the framing for the main floor will start this week, which means you might actually get to see something if you drive by later this week! We got the windows finalized and also picked out plumbing fixtures. We've had our floors and cabinets decided for awhile now, so I think we're doing pretty well! I even think we may have our color picked out for the outside - Timberbark!
