Dan's mother came to stay with us for a few days this week, helping care for Lucinda while we got some hard work done. It was fantastic to actually be able to work on things at the house, rather than the way I usually spend my days which is chasing around after Lu while Dan does all the work.
She also took a few family portraits of us in our new home. I think this is my favourite. Even the dog sat still, momentarily.
I know one day we'll look back on this crazy project and wonder what, exactly, we were thinking when we took it on. But, at least we now have a few photos of us at the beginning to look back on.
In other news, we met our first snake yesterday. A large red belly black snake, under the house. Country living, we have arrived!
Now, bring on my snake fencing project.
