Extra Arm Workout Family Time

That´s right! We all got an extra arm workout today. We did it together. We scraped, pulled, squirted, then scraped and pulled all over again. Some of it wasn´t so "sing songy", but we all worked together. The boys did a lot of the pulling and squirting. They actually really got into it.

Remember this...?



Our school room for the past four years.




This is how we got our arm workout today. Scraping the wall paper off half of the school room.
Now for the paint and new desks, Lord willing. Also, boxed up old books to storage. I can´t wait! Can´t wait to start school in a new fresh classroom!
I love participating with Nan in her meme, Making Your Home Sing Monday. Even if I can´t make my home sing with a perfect attitude all the time,(well, in fact, this is something I have to work on a lot) this meme helps me to realize the things that do go right in our home and give thanks.

  1. I am so excited for you!!!

    I can´t wait to see the end result. You did a good job with the entry way and I am sure you will do a great job with the school room. What color are you doing? If you haven´t pick up the paint yet look at hgtv web page they give you different colors and the moods they are supposed to set.... if you are into that.... I am so into all that :)

    Talk to you later girl!

  5. Oh how fun it will be, can't wait to see the new pictures!

    We never really had a schoolroom. We had an extra room for one, but we wound up homeschooling at the kitchen table.

    Once both boys were schooling my youngest would do his work at the table and the oldest preferred the living room. Sometimes he even sat on the stairs and did it, lol!
