Internet update: Still without the internet, so I'm patching in at the local coffee shop. Strange how you can get used to this..even my youngest said that "technology makes people less interested in each other, and they don't interact as much." Talk about wisdom! She notices that people spend so much time looking at a device that they don't really "talk" with each other anymore. This time away from the computer has been eye-opening. It's hard, for sure, to not have access, but I am making do. They say it'll be another 2-5 days, but we'll see...keeping fingers crossed. : )
My daughter's teen play - painted floor update: So the floor is complete..and it's at the playhouse and looks pretty great, though with so many pairs of shoes, it's quite dusty and smudged, but hopefully on opening night, we'll sit back and enjoy the view. : ) The funny thing is that my littlest and I are now in charge of the entire backdrop (to match the floor). We are almost done with that too. I will post some pics once I get them ready. What a job, but it's worth it to help the community playhouse. The kids seem to really enjoy it already and that's been a huge plus. They are such a great bunch of teenagers!
Book project update: we've got revisions and research to do, but we are plugging away..and are enthusiastic about it's progress.
