I haven't blogged since Tuesday, when I first began to mention this week's house project. We have worked long and hard...and we've made progress.
We began culling homeschooling materials on Tuesday when Arielle took a box of books home, and we threw away much well-used material. On Wednesday Bre and Melany, Bryce and Ketziah came over and took a box or two of books home. Bryce helped Michael load a dead stove and dryer onto the back of his truck. By Wednesday night this one shelf, and the big box in the forefront of Sonlight and TOG manuals, is all that's left of the schooling materials.
The boys' old room is looking more and more like our envisioned study. We filled shelves, moved over computers and printers and put down the carpet...
|See how much taller I look than the girls?|
How can I only be 5'3"?
|Millie is NOT sure what to make of all the changes.|
We need to find a loveseat or couch for under the window. I'm going to list the antique cane furniture on marketplace. The hutch to the left of the door is slated to move upstairs. Note...the big pile to the left of the doors is gone. The exercise equipment is all moved. Our food storage is organized...still need shelves somewhere for it. We also want to add a carpet and I'll move some of my "woodsy" stuff (as Stacia calls it) down from the dining room...because I have shelves from mom to house teacups that are going on the upstairs walls so we can unpack all the teacups and china which is now in the spare oom. We will move the roll top desk from the nook to the study - when we have more muscles to get it down the stairs. I'm HOPING before August 19th's family celebration but if it has to wait until then...it will.
