On to Round 5, more house photos and a soccer photo

I can't believe I made it to round 5 of the Bad Girls contest! We started with about 200 scrappers and now we're down to about 40. There are two more rounds to go before the big winner is picked. I feel blessed just to make it this far! For Round 4, the challenge was to create a layout leaving negative space. Well, the negative space and me do not get along, so this challenge kicked my butt! I chose to do a layout of Connor's favorite lullaby...
Sleep, Baby, Sleep
Your Daddy tends the sheep
You Mommy shakes the dreamland tree
Down falls a little dream for thee
Sleep, Baby, Sleep


Now that Eric is tied up with the house building, Ryan has stepped in to help me coach. Here are my two boys before today's game.
Click on all photos for a better look.



Well, our basement walls have been poured. To get a scale of the project, you can see Connor standing at the far end in front of the wall.




Here's a picture of the huge dirt pile that came from the basement dig. You can see Connor at the base of the pile.
