Vivian received her Five Year Old Sunday School Trophy for memorization of several scriptures and the names of the 12 disciples. Go girl! 🙂
I heard the thumping of feet and the clicking of claws in my hall and decided to go see who was making all the racket and why. I was met with the sight of my daughter running up and down the long hall with the dog on her heels. I asked her what she was doing and she promptly told me that the dog was getting fat and that he needed to be exercised..lol…so that is what she was doing. Excercising the dog. From the pictures, you can see that it probably was the other way around…the dog excercising her!

2 cans of Anchor Gray Paint (test board in the background)
4 5×7 rugs (put together with seam tape)
Dining chair covers
Tree branch and bird decal for the wall (not sure what to do with this just yet)
From my previous post, I told you about the garage sale I had to raise enough funds to refurbish the dining room. Well, I did not know that rugs were so expensive! The least expensive rug I found that I could live with was $300! I have to have at least an 10×12 due to my dining table being 5×10. Well, I went in to the local home store and saw Berber carpet in 5×7 remnants already bound for $25 each. I quickly did the math….4 5×7 rugs would make 1 10×14 rug and it would only cost $100. I snatched four up, bought two boxes of seaming tape and did exactly what the man is doing in the picture.
I think it looks good…for now! Especially since I do not have $300! I would have had to spend my entire garage sale profit on the rug…which would not have been bad, but I have already bought the paint and other items. So, this will do.
After school lets out (this week, THANK GOD!), I will be finished for the summer and I plan to paint the dining room sometime next weekend. I plan on decorating and spiffing up the dining room also, then I will take pics and post the final ta-da pics. (***Update…next weekend, yeah right! I just painted the dining room and “spiffed it up”. August 6, 2010).
We are still working slowly on the bathroom. The caulk has dried and I am going to finish this project up (hopefully!!!) next week as well. Vivian will be gone to Grandma’s house (woo hoo!) and will not be underfoot. I have a big superwoman list for next week. We shall see what actually gets done.
Hahaha…my daughter is funny even when she does not intend to be. I thought this was cute.
They asked the kids certain questions throughout the year and wrote down their answers EXACTLY as they said it. This book is from last year. Vivian was 4.
I asked her what kind of work she did in a bathroom.
