A few updates...

1.  Fire- 
As I wrote here, the fire was a nasty beast.
346 homes were burned.
Many more damaged by smoke, water, etc.

Thankfully, the fire is almost completely contained...
WAY earlier than expected!


2. Weather-
After weeks of incredibly hot weather,
we finally have some reprieve!
This is a beautiful sight:

I guess Colorado finally got the memo that vintage is in 
and decided to bring back cool nights and afternoon thunderstorms.
I love you, old school Colorado!


3. Foster care-
We are officially licensed!
I now keep my phone near by at all times in case we're called.
The room is ready!


4. Alice-
She's still pretty cute.
And pretty feisty.
But mostly sweet. :)


5. Chickens-
The chickens no longer have free reign of our entire backyard.
They have a run on the side of our house.
I'm happier.
And our grass is happier.
Now we can eat outside without chickens jumping up on our table!
Win!

6. Friday Night Lights-
I just finished the first season.
I love it!
This show started 6 years ago.
I can't believe I'm just now watching it.
I'm off to watch an episode now!
Oh yeah!

I love these updates! Especially the beautiful photos. Wow! And your baby's room is just perfect. I can't wait to meet the first lucky little guy or gal who gets to sleep there. :-)

We started watching Friday Night Lights a few weeks ago and are almost finished with the 3rd Season!! It is so addicting.

Love seeing that room waiting for some kiddos. I am excited just thinking about that for you!!
