Beautiful summer clouds.
Oh, I wish that was me. A nap sounds good.
Boys fighting summer boredom.
We had a chance to escape the construction and get away with friends to Bethany Beach. We shared a big house and had so much fun. The week flew by. The kids had a great time in the waves, and I ate way way too much ice cream and caramel corn.
Thanks to Abbey I have some photos, because I didn’t touch my camera once…and it must have felt neglected because it promptly broke as soon as I unpacked the darn thing-I’m without a camera for a week or two until I find a replacement.
The big boys came also, but I have no photos of either Isaac or Matt. 🙁
We are almost there addition-wise. ALMOST there. (Two months late, and why oh why can’t we (meaning they) just finish already???) I’m frustrated and can’t wait for it to be over so I can wash my hands of all the stress (I will never ever do this again, mark my word, I know I said that last time we renovated this kitchen but this time I mean it I really really do) and just enjoy the extra space. Here’s a few pics of the kitchen:
I chose a marble look-a-like quartz for the island, and that’s a great big pantry to the right. A cookie sheet drawer is going above the double oven, not in place yet (which was my idea to save a contractor from their measuring mistake that could have been very costly.) The roll of cork is going on side of fridge panel, and I have about 20 back to school papers waiting to stick on it.
For now, I am trying to balance back to school prep and planning with enjoying these last beautiful days of summer vacation.
