Up, up, and away.

Hello there, lumber!

We knew this day was close, and today was our lucky day. As we rounded the corner we could see one little wall that was upright! I cannot tell you how exciting it was to see those 2 x 4s nailed into our foundation! Aiden even asked "that is our house?" in this weird, I-am-not-so-sure-I-like-it kind of voice. Yes baby love, that.... is our house.

They were moving so quickly, and putting in so many nails (probably a good thing!), so we decided to leave, go get dinner, and come back an hour later. This is what we came back to:

More walls! We will be checking back tomorrow to see what progress they have made! When my lovely husband spoke with the construction workers, they said the whole thing will be up, and framed, within a few days! Here is our updated "Building a Home" list!
