Gracie woke me up this morning

by barking loudly and persistently at an intruder. She's such a good guard dog.

Actually, it was just John, our friend who is fixing up the backyard for our girls.
There is a nasty old dried-up pond that John is disassembling. It has to be done for our home inspection and it has needed to be done for a long time.

Things are buzzing at the Rouses. Everything is in disarray. Everything is half complete-the garage, the backyard, the girl's room. There is the transition all about. Very unsettling.

It's nice to have friends who are willing to help get the house ready. I know it's a lot of work now but just think how beautiful it will be when it's done.
