We've been back in Winter Park for 5 weeks, and I'm finally hitting my stride. We've got our routines down, and house is looking more organized. It always takes a while. The kids have already gotten their half term progress reports, and they are doing great. Kevin got all A's and Catie had a mix of A's and B's.
Alex and are still working on the rental house, and we are now concentrating on the back yard. I never think to take "before" pictures to contrast with "after" pictures, and it would have been a good idea to do this, as Alex has done an amazing job. I don't think our last tenants did anything out there in the past 8 years, and it was quite overgrown. Alex dug out most of the bushes that were probably planted over 20 years ago and were half dead. We're putting new mulch down and I'll get some more flowers to plant. I'll also get some grass seed and spread it out before we get some rainy weather.
We had a great day today at the pool. Nora and Gene came over for the day, and Kent and Rene came over for a barbeque at Windsong with us. Alex did all the cooking, and everything was delicious.
It's 10 p.m. and the kids are already in bed. We're back on track.
