A Quick Update

We slept in again today, but did get up in time to get ready and go to church. I don't necessarily feel better when I sleep in, so I don't know why I do it. I've had a headache most of today, but nothing debilitating yet, and I pray it doesn't get that way!

Right after we got home from church I started in again on Emma's room. It's coming right along. Our friends Juanita and Erin were out on a walk and stopped by to check it out. They thought it was looking pretty good. (Thanks for stopping by guys!) I got the picket fence done, and the boards drawn and painted that connects the fence together. I think I am going to make myself a stencil with 4 holes punched in the shape of a square and stencil on screw heads to make it look a little more realistic. Scott got the 2nd blind up and the curtain rod and valance hung. The valances are so cute. I am not yet going to post pictures, because I want to get more completed before I give the big reveal. I painted the little hutch/cabinet that my Grandpa Larsen made. I've got 2 coats of white paint on it and it may need a 3rd, unfortunately. I also got a coat of purple paint on the front, back and sides of the bed. I think the purple is going to go well the the accents on the valance and switchplate covers. I just can't wait to get it finished! I'll be working hard on it this week to get as much done as I can.

Gage has his last week of Camp Edventure this week and tomorrow and he actually goes from 8a-4p tomorrow. I will have to pick him up a little early so we can get to swimming lessons on time. It will be hard to get a bunch done during the week with all the different activities we have going on, but I'm going to do my best.

We had a volleyball game tonight and won 2 out of 3 games. We had a slow start, but finally started doing better, but they were still close games. It was definitely time to go when we finished the 3rd game as Emma was starting throwing sand at Gage and he had it all over in his hair. I have always hated sand and it drives me crazy when the kids have it in their hair.

Hope you all have a great week!
