Take Me Out to the Ballgame...

Well, Mugger and Bug went to their first baseball game this weekend to see the hometown Corvallis Knights defeat the Kitsap Bluejackets 6 to 0. Mugger's favorite part was either the score (since he loves it when "his" team wins) or the border collies that ran out in between innings to catch frisbees. Bug's favorite part was the metal bleachers: she was able to jump up and down and make all the noise she wanted! They both liked getting to run the bases at the end, too, so I'd say a good time was had by all.
Update: We saw one more Knights game this summer, one of the Knights last regular season games while Nonnie and Gramps were here in August. They again won in a landslide, so we weren't actually all that surprised when they ended up as the post-season champs!

Move-In Mayhem

Here's a little update for all who are curious:
-- The bedrooms have all been painted and have their new hardwood floors-- yay! (No more ugly purple carpet!) There's a bit of trim to finish, but then we can move into the bedrooms, hopefully tomorrow.
-- The floors will be done once the stairs are done, either today or tomorrow.
-- Projects that remain: replacing the roof and some of the siding and figuring out this battle over having no natural gas!

Hopefully my next update will have pix of all the hard work so many have contributed! (Gotta find that camera cable...)

Moving Day...

... is here at last! The truck has arrived in Corvallis and will start unloading any second now!

Sorry there have been virtually no updates from us in this process, but yes, we did finally get our dream home that we had found back in May and it's been officially ours for one week now. There's the little matter of no gas line to get settled, but other than that, we are looking forward to all the projects. Thanks to lots of help from Shepherd members, we've already laid the vinyl flooring in the basement and the whole interior of the house has been repainted! One of these days we'll get pix up...

Thanks for all your prayers-- please keep them coming as we deal with things like a new roof and siding!

We're also looking forward to Greg's installation this Sunday afternoon and the visiting friends and family that occasion will bring!
