Dear friends make everything better!

Faith received a Principal's Pride award for a silly poem she wrote about the ice cream that they stored in the bathroom. She has quite an imagination!
Our dear, sweet friend, Heather, got married to her sweetheart, Jed. We were thrilled to be invited to all the festivities! We love Heather like she is our own. She has been THE favorite babysitter since we lived in Indiana, and we are so grateful to live close again! Love you, Heather!
My Clark is a CHARACTER with a capital C! The Kindergarten class was putting on a ZOO, each child dressing up as the animal of their choice. During this song, he's doing a little jive, and really hamming it up. Maybe he got this from his Mimi!?!
Here are the desert animals. The children designed their own habitat background, and used household items to make into the scenery. Miss Ipson is just so darling - Clark has learned so much, and really had a GREAT time at school this year!

The Basement Project

Here is the progress on the basement. Kellert (our amazing Contractor) has all the wainscoting up, and will work this week on the stairway up. You can see in this picture the little Kids Clubhouse that Kellert built under the stairs - this will be just so fun for them to have their own little space. Even the light switch is lower for them. I think I might put my cousin Ann's Solar System vinyl in there. Might as well learn something, right?
At the end of this room will be two benches and a short entertainment center with a TV on the wall (maybe by Christmas).
This is the doorway into the bathroom, and the continuing into the BIG room. Because it's a walk-out basement, it will be really light and useful space - not feeling like a basement. EXCITED!
This is the nook for the desk, and then on up the stairs. Stay tuned. In about 4 weeks, this should look MUCH different!
