Over 7 years in the making

Jeremy and I had talked about this since we got married over 7 years ago …

We have a new table!!!  We had gotten a hutch made shortly after we got married and talked about getting a matching table but we already had a table and there were other things like cars and student loans to pay off. 😉

The same Amish man made the table as did the hutch 7 years ago and he got the chairs from another Amish friend.  The table is 6 feet with no leaves and stretches out to 15 feet with all the leaves in.

Here is the table with no leaves in it setup at our house.


And here it is with all the leaves when Jeremy and his dad picked it up yesterday



Ella and Abby both took swimming lessons this spring. By logging on the rec center system 1 minute after registration started I was able to get Ella and Abby lessons at the same time. (Earlier this year Ella missed out on some swimming lessons because I foolishly logged on an hour after registration started and they were all booked up!) Ella was in Tad Poles, a class with 5 other kids. Abby was in water babies with mom or dad and 15 other babies. Daddy took some videos and pictures the last day of class.
