~It's Saturday morning and I feel like I'm moving a bit slower after working on our kitchen floor yesterday. We decided to remove the vinyl floor and replace it with laminate wood. My little helper (Stephen, age 7) and I tackled removing all the trim and old flooring, not really an easy task! After all that was taken up the floor had these little staples sticking up everywhere, so we were pounding them all down. Stephen was so cute, he said, "Mom, this is just like playing whack a mole". It makes me happy when one of the kids chooses to enjoy a task that is pretty mundane! :)

~Today's project is installing the new floors! I'm excited to see how they look when we're done.
I'll be sure to post some before and after pictures too.

~We are throwing a big birthday bash in a couple weeks....makes all these other projects have a deadline to be done...eeek!

~Baby girl Kathleen will be ONE in a couple weeks also, cliche I know but I can not believe how fast her first year has gone.

~We started back to school this week. Mainly just continuing right on with where we left off at the beginning of summer. The kids weren't very happy to get back to the books so we had some character/obedience training too, which is exhausting.

~A friend from church hosted a group of homeschool mom's at her house for prayer and encouragement for the start of the school year...seriously, this could not have come at a better time, it was wonderful!

So, are you going to share Baby Boy's name??

I can't wait to see pictures of your beautiful new kitchen!

You are doing a good job with your kids. Isn't it refreshing to see our kids helping so willingly and having fun doing it too?

Take care!

Sounds like you have been super busy! Lots of projects and things happening your way. Sounds like it's all worth it every minute of it.
