I researched color schemes from the 1920's - our house was built in 1919 - and these were the ones I picked for our house. I felt like the were still a bit modern, too. What do you think?
I took a walking field trip with Benjamin's class to the the Museum. It was a super chilly day, the wind was cold enough to hurt my ears. I led the whole group (2 first grade classes, teachers and parents) to the Museum. We did a quick 1-hour tour. The kids didn't enjoy it as much as they do when they can explore on their own. This was my group.

We also began another remodel project. We are turning a portion of our back porch into a second bathroom. Hallelujah! I can't wait til the day when I don't have to worry about getting kicked off the toilet because someone else needs to go. Or when I can lock the door during a shower. We will be taking this project a bit slower than others because we've already run out of money for it!
We've walled off this wall of windows. The ones on the right side are in on this picture. We are doing small ones that are just at the top. The bottom half is walled. This day was chilly and the house got pretty cold.
Ben and Kannon Kannon had a rough time over Thanksgiving. He got something in his eye on Tuesday. It didn't bother him until he was sleeping that night. He worked on Wednesday, but by Thursday he could barely open his eye and both eyes were really sensitive to light. He wore his sunglasses all weekend. We went from thinking something was in it, to thinking it was scratched, and back to having something in there. So, finally by Saturday he decided to go to the ER to get it checked out. They basically did a little surgery - cutting out the tiny piece of something that was in his cornea. He felt so much better by that evening. I wish he could have enjoyed it all a bit more.
