Last week was a busy one...

This last week has been very busy, but we have enjoyed all that it had in store for us.

First off, Joel and I (mostly Joel) have been trying to finish the basement in our house. Joel has completed putting up the drywall in the basement, and has started on the stairway. I mainly just help with holding up the drywall - mostly for the ceiling - while Joel puts in the screws.

THIS IS NOT A FUN JOB, but it will be worth it in the end.

Then, we went to visit with our good friend Erryn and meet her new little baby girl Jaida. Erryn has been living in Georgia, so it was so fun to have her in Spokane visiting. Joel and I both miss Erryn and Jake so much. And Jaida is a doll.

On Saturday, Joel had to coach our wards young mens basketball team in an all day tournament. Since he got called to be the teachers advisor, he got suckered into this coaching job. Joel never played organized basketball, but he did a great job coaching, and his team ended up winning the whole tournament.
Here are some pictures I took, but my camera was not working well, so the pictures turned out horrible.

Saturday evening I went out with some girl friends to see the movie, "He is just not that into you". It was fun just to hang out with the girls, while our husbands went and did their own thing.

Hopefully this next week will bring more fun adventures with a little bit more relaxation time.
