The Hardwood Floor Project

First of all, let me just say again how much I adore my husband for getting me/us this computer for Christmas. We had been using laptops...his from church and mine from school, but it was a pain for me to bring it home and unhooking it from my SMART Board. Plus, the boys are into any ".com" website they hear about and couldn't navigate the mouse very well on the laptops. Second, the new digital camera he got me has been very busy also. That is why I am blogging so much more is so much easier!

Anyway, we are making great headaway with the floors. This morning I unloaded the boys' closet, stripped the beds, and moved the mattresses and boxsprings out to our room so he could start their floor when he gets home from the dentist. Our room looks like a war does the computer room because it has the flooring boxes in it, as well as baseboards. But, after today and this weekend, the boys' room and the hall will be done. All that will be left is our closet and the computer room. I've added a few pictures of the project and will add some more of the finished project. The boys were VERY helpful in unloading their closet and taking things back to our room. They want Derrick to work on the floor in their room, so they are all about speeding up the process. They took all their "friends" out to the couches and snuggled up to watch Toy Story 2...they LOVE snow days! Movies and video games are special treats on weekdays when we have no school.

As for the tooth..last night when Derrick was brushing Lucas's teeth, he accidentally hit his loose tooth the wrong way, and we thought it was going to come luck. Derrick tried, but Lucas wouldn't have it. Hopefully he will suck his fingers enough to loosen it a little more. According to him, he can whistle now with a loose tooth...not sure why he thinks that, but who am I to question the mind of an almost six year old? We have another snow day today, which according to Matthew is the "Perfect PS2 Day!" Any excuse for him to play video games....oh well. I am very thankful for the snow day, however tomorrow back to school will be rough, and come June I may not be so excited when we have to add days on . Oh well!
