I am wife to a magnificent man and mother to five wonderful children. Three of my children were born in the Northwest and two were born thousands of miles away in Liberia, West Africa. Birthplace is no matter, all of my children were born in my heart. This is our journey.

Just another manic Friday.

It's not all that bad actually but it very busy in our house these days. We are getting ready for another graduation party for one of Steve's sisters and it's in our backyard this time. No pressure of course. We work really well with deadlines so this is great motivation to get some projects finished. The big one this week is the step around the deck. No small task with 26 supports to cut out but Steve is doing a fantastic job. The surgeon cleared Steve to do more activity which he was thrilled to hear. He has been waiting to start this project until his shoulder was ready. He got sidelined yesterday though by a cold and is not feeling very well right now. We are hoping it is short lived and he will be good as new in a day or two.

By the end of the weekend we should have a nice step the entire length of the deck. It will be nice to exit the deck anywhere but it will also provide great over flow seating for when we have larger groups of people over. The kids and I are hoping to finish school for the day this morning and then we'll head to out to clear the entire deck for pressure washing this evening. We would like to have everything looking it's best for the graduation party.

If all goes well I might even get my garden in this weekend. As my mom always says, "We shall see!"
