JD finished the playroom ceiling last night. It really makes a big difference coming down the stairs. Now he's cleaning and rearranging the back game room to move on to the last big room that needs insulation and ceiling.
I spent several hours cleaning and re-organizing the storage room. I also brought the rest of my canning jars in from the barn. I'm reading a book called Backyard Homestead and hope to be able to grow and preserve more vegetables this year than ever before.
This cracked me up. The boys were tasked with getting these items to the area that JD breaks down boxes and prepares for the dump run. They were smart enough to go get the wagon and try to get it all in one load - it is a trip from the back-yard to behind the barn. They were stacking and piling, until JD came out and helped them stack efficiently.
Thankfully, the boxes were empty, but it was still a challenging load with the incredibly bent wheel on the wagon. I honestly think these tasks are good for working together and brain-storming skills!
As I mentioned yesterday, I did get a picture of Julia's smile with her new missing tooth. I'm not sure you can actually see the spot, but it's a cute smile either way.
Here she is sporting her new twists we did yesterday. I went for random pastel bands and barrettes, but she looks a bit like an Easter egg. Oh well, at least it's done.
Elijah woke up congested again; it seems to be a common Saturday occurance. We'll see if he's fit to attend church tomorrow.
