Pool decking poured

The pathways and decking areas were poured today. They still need to resurface it with the Sundeck and apply the Indian Wheat color that I selected.
I really disliked these plain concrete steps from our side garage door, so they're getting a makeover. They'll be semi-circular steps, then covered in flagstone to hide the seams.
I also added more decking from the pool area to connect with the garage side door, seen below.
Here's the view from our bedroom deck area.
Here comes the hose filled with concrete.

WOW - it's really coming along! How exciting! Great call on the re-do of the back step area and decking to join it. Will you do anything by the a/c units as a camoflage of sorts?

I have had zero time the last several weeks to read any blogs and my goodness, things are really coming along with your pool! That is so exciting!!! It's looking great!

Yes, Tina! There will be a stone wall that is built to hide the two air conditioning units. Good observation.

kind of crazy how the sludgy wet cement can move so fast through that little hose. It is almost done. I can hardly believe it. Besides the flagstone on the steps, and the cement paint, you basically just need to add some water.

I am really excited for you. What a treat it will be for you and your family to look no further than your own backyard for some summer relaxation.

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…
