Pool final stages

Ask and ye shall receive, Chris, here are the updated pictures of our pool! He and Conni have been so sweet and excited for us about our pool. They were actually with Kelly and me (to see the Michael Bublé concert) when we were in the process of deciding what pool company to go with. So here are the latest pictures, taken just moments ago.There's quite a drop off in depth here, so there will not be a lot of pool volleyball for those who plan to stand.
I really miss my deck and can hardly wait to use it again. Not being able to walk outside the back door has been hard. Hopefully next week there will be a new deck so I can actually walk out my kitchen door to the back yard. Also, check out my pretty tile in the pool and spa below. I love the way it turned out.
Below, here's the future deep end--filled with dirty water for now. It's 6.5 feet deep.
They'll just cover all of this construction mess up with concrete and Sundeck.
Here's the view of the pool from the side garage door, next to my office.
Here's the beach area where you can step into the pool and get your feet wet in the area where it's really shadowy.
I'm so excited that it's almost finished. I'm getting really impatient now that I can see how close they are to being done. I will update the pictures when the Pebble Sheen finish is added to the overall bottom of the pool and spa, and when the decking areas are added. Woohooo!

I am surprised each time you post new pics, it is going quite fast. Lucky you. I am excited to see it all tiled and with your new pool furniture on display.

It is a good thing that you decided to start the process when you did, you will have a new pool just in time to beat the real summer heat.

It's looking great. My friend who lives in Dallas has a pool, and they love it. You're going to have a ball once it's all done.

I just got back last night, so I'll have to catch up on all the blog posts I missed. It's so good to be back!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
