Winter was a bit sneaky this year……we woke up Monday morning to sleet, rain, snow and wind!!! There was a mad dash through the house to find all the right gear!!!
and let me tell you….there is a lot of gear! BOOTS to wear to school, shoes in bag to change into, extra pair of SNOWPANTS to keep at school, and an extra outfit to keep at school in case of getting wet from playing in the snow at recess. And at home there are bins filled with MITTENS, GLOVES, SCARVES, EARWARMERS, BALACLAVAS and HATS, extra JACKETS, SNOWPANTS, SNOWSUITS and BOOTS….and they all have to fit!!
I am always amazed every year how fast the kids grow out of everything……thank goodness for hand-me-downs, consignment sales and shopping the pre-winter sales.
a sneak peek of the playroom makeover……little by little progress is being made…..it has taken me over 2 weeks to paint, hubby is still working on the trim (for some crazy reason this room did not have trim) and pictures need to be hung.
i have cleaned out a TON of toys….and the kiddos now play MORE in this room….go figure.
