Tedious Work

We've been doing plenty of projects around here - tedious ones but it's forward progress.  Chris did a lot of work on the porch railing.  There is still one section left to complete but it looks great!

I've been spending a lot of time with some brick colored paint and a tiny brush.  The previous owners were quite sloppy with their trim painting so there is a lot of random white paint on the brick - particularly where we removed walls and along the top of the walls.  Here are a couple of the spots I've finished - it's not as noticeable as it was before at least!

We also had some fun.  I took the kids to the science center on Friday - they had a blast!



Our neighbors got some new chicks so we got to pay a little visit.  They have a dozen and they are adorable.  We'll be visiting often as they grow!

I made some colored beans for the kids to play with and I got about 45 minutes of quite time out of them (although I need to sit close so they don't throw them around the house).

Josh had a little tumble on the sidewalk and got a big scrape above his eye.  Fortunately it was just a little bump and he only cried for about 30 seconds.  He's happy and it makes him look tough!

We also went to a small street festival and happened to run into Elsa.  

We hope to get a LOT done this week (with hopefully plenty of pictures!).
