This past week, as you know, we were painting the girls' rooms. What an undertaking. This picture shows how we have lived for a week now.
You have to know where you are going before you start out, little paths everywhere - very little. Even the kitchen had stuff in it, it was awful.
Sadie had wanted horses painted on her wall. I painted these flowers and have had to look at them for years now. I told her no horses would be painted on her wall unless we hired our friend, Jessica, to paint them. I mean, these are only flowers and look how they turned out. The butterfly was cute but that was a small thing compared to the huge ugly flowers. This is the before picture and under is the after picture.
And this is the mess I made while backing up to get a better angle on the paint brush. Thank goodness for drop cloths or she'd have "cloudless sky" floors, too.
Our friends, Grace and Michael, who ran the Montessori School Sadie went to when she was 3 and 4, came into town last week. This is their 7th child, David(held by Grace- literally and figuratively). He survived being run over by a car while he was here. You may have read about it in the paper. You can still see the scrapes and stuff to his head. His main problem was a 3rd degree burn to his bottom. What a little miracle. I was so happy to be able to meet him for the first time and see his family again. I miss them so much. The last time they were in town, I didn't get to see them because I was on bed rest, pregnant with Anna. But, this time we got to get together. What a blessing! Angels be around y'all as you travel back to California!
