We used to take Sunday afternoon naps. Now we have Sunday No Naps! Dad was hopeful I think, but it didn't look too restful to me.
Launching pad? Dance floor?
Oh look! We even have a mega phone to help with the peacefulness of the nap! As if this child needed anything to further project her voice!!
Monday morning headed in to school. I think Wren pays too much attention to how her brothers carry their bags! Ya think?
At this point on the walk.....they grab hands.....every. single. day:)
Had to come back out for a drink.
And to check out the artwork across the hallway.
When they first get there every day, they practice writing their names. Mrs. Betz(seated) writes it in highlighter, and then they trace it till the last page where they have to write it free hand. They are improving.....but it's still pretty shaky looking! Wrens sign language teacher Mrs. Kay, is standing. The other teacher Mrs. Hargitt has her back to us. She has been working there for as long as I can remember as well! These ladies do an awesome job every day!! They truly deserve medals! They are MY heroes for sure:) Thanks ladies! I know your job isn't easy some days!
After school snack time. Salsa with sour cream mixed in and chips. Sherman fixed it and sat down with it, and immediately had company! There was No...."hey can I share that"...nope.....just scoot my chair as close as possible and dive in! Wren tries everything......
......Iley opted out of the salsa and stuck to straight carbs........ unadulterated!
Bedroom update. If you remember.....it started out like this. Very cute....looks like a nice bedroom....BUT...that's a long drop to the floor for 2 girls that were used to sleeping in cribs......so after they graduated from their floor bed in the den beside our room....up to this room....
we turned the bed.....and them.....like this. Not beautiful...but it worked......until...they started waking each other up!! NOT GOING TO WORK!!! We need them to sleep!!! Soooo....
Now....it looks like this. This is walking straight in the door. The beds are to the left....the only wall without a window or door! This is NOT my wall paper of choice for a girls room....but it was there..and stuck tight.....and my decorating budget has been ENTIRELY swallowed by my medical budget.....soooo....sailboats it is.
Corner "headboard" all painted and installed. Nice safe floor beds that won't cause concussions if they fall out.....may not even wake them up......and Iley rocking in the wee hours of the morning, won't wake up Wren. I'm thinking after Wren's surgery, this will be good too! Iley can't whack her in the night.
I'm thinking...... I hope they don't look at that and see "LAUNCHING PAD!" Give Wren time.....I'm sure she will! I will hear thumps and cackles....because they don't realize that nice little do hicky on the corner stand is a nursery moniter...and I hear all.........then I'll have to go be the party stopper!
Then if you head back out the door....you see this. What would you all suggest to put on the walls?? They are busy.......but bare. Any suggestions? Or just leave it alone? They really don't care. They're 5. I did think about putting some family pictures, or some pictures from the trip to the beach up. Big canvas ones.....but.....that costs $.......so ?
