The First Half of Vacation Week!
This has been a week on vacation. Usually our vacation times are so packed with “stuff” that we can barely find time to breathe. This week so far has been pretty calm. Saturday the kids and I spent the day in Boston – Circus, picnic with friends and more. Sunday was the typical church, Sunday School, Bread Feast. Monday was the big day – two fridges were delivered to replace two broken fridges. However, we needed to shuffle three fridges around to make it work. Yes we have a seriously large house! Four floors to be exact. So emptying the fridges, moving “stuff” to get them in and out, moving new fridges in and putting everything back – that took three adults, four hours to complete. But we are all extremely happy with our fridges – I can’t stop admiring them. They are nothing special as far as fridges go but the other two came with the house. The two new ones were full size – as large as they could be to remain in the spots available for them. We do have one minor difficulty – one of the fridges is in a pantry style kitchen that had bifold doors to keep the dogs out – the bifold doors no longer fit. That shouldn’t be a problem now that our dogs are old enough to behave for the most part.
Yesterday Sephora and I had our first piano lesson – actually her first. I had lessons 15 years ago but really don’t remember any of it. I used to play piano for my grandmother – she couldn’t get enough of it. But when she passed away I stopped taking lessons and really no longer found the joy in it. We do have a piano and two keyboards though (along with a million other instruments). So Sephora and I had the opportunity to take lessons at a friends house. I guess I really didn’t forget it all – some of it came back to me while some of it was brand new. I was so proud of Sephora. She gets quite panicky and she focused and enjoyed her lesson.
Today – the agenda includes some rainbow loom bracelet making projects and Rio 2!
Not a ton of chaos so far this week – I am not sure how we are escaping it since we seem to be chaos magnets – but I am totally not complaining!
