"Hartman, party of five..." We've been pretty overwhelmed by all the changes. Priya is on the tail end of potty training, and cutting four molars. Silas is learning that I can't listen to his constant steam of consciousness ramblings all day, especially when Levi is screaming. Overall, I think Levi is a pretty chill little guy, but he still requires mucho attention. We've been getting mountain rain storms everyday, so our outside time has been limited...looking forward to more sunshine soon.
Christian has made two major purchases recently, on the road to a new business. In addition to making furniture, he also wants to do some custom milling, so he has purchased a large Wood-mizer saw mill. He also bought a machine that is a planer, molder, sander sort-of-a-thing, as well as a band saw. He will hopefully be able to provide rough cut materials and trim molding to the contractors in the area. He's interviewed them all, and they seem interested. Let's hope the building market sustains itself. And, let's hear it for the newest sawyer on the Western Slope. (the photo at the top is from our last family dance party)
