early stages of the BBR
Mrs. Lisa taught Lily how to polish silver in Aunt Terri's shop.
I love how - even from this angle -
you can see how closely Lily was paying attention
just ordinary life
I love these people!!!
Tyler's wants a photo for facebook.
the second one gets my vote
life with brothers....
Happy 17th, Ton'
You are such a blessing to our family!
I love you
For easy bedtime reading:
poor man's version of the gutter bookshelves
we like better
although - in a permanent house - I'd paint 'em
(The upright boards go to the bed, not the shelves - ignore them.)
We simply took a 2x4 & cut it the length we wanted the shelf to be
(by 'we' I mean, Tony, mostly)
then we split the board in half, so we had (roughly) 2 - 2x2's.
Found the studs then screwed the 2x2's onto the wall.
Then we put a line of glue
on the bottom portion of a 1x3 cut to the same length as the 2x4 (now the 2x2)
lined up the bottom of both boards
and added a few finishing nails.
I figure they can choose new books every week.
If they're especially careful,
they can earn the privilege of having library books on their shelves, too!
I didn't want them fighting over books
so I kept sending them to get 2 books each.
Jeremiah was very thoughtful choosing his books;
Josiah wasn't. (except Mouse Paint - he loves that book!)
last week's Family Fun Night
sisters playing together make me so happy!
I do love these people
