The painting crew packed up and left just before lunchtime. It has been a challenge to keep the children out of the rooms that were being painted the last few days, but having new-looking walls is worth the inconvenience! I am very happy with the way the rooms turned out.
Bookworm and Mickey Mouse have been doubling up in the bunk beds in the little girls' room this week while their rooms were being painted. I have enjoyed sneeking in late at night to see them all snuggled up together in the bunk beds. So sweet! I think that the little girls will have to share their room at least one more night. I sure don't want anyone sleeping in a room with paint fumes!
Tomorrow is our weekly shopping/errand day. We'll be gone for most of the day, so that should give the walls enough of a rest for us to rearrange the furniture tomorrow evening.
Praise the Lord for beautiful weather this week! It has been a blessing to spend a good part of our day outdoors instead of being stuck inside while the painting was going on!
