i promised a verrrrry long time ago that i'd post pictures of our house. so we have a few before pictures here and then a few i snapped quickly this afternoon. sorry i didn't take the time to edit them so you'll have to deal with the darkness. :-]
so basically they've taken away a bedroom & bathroom from our house and we're getting 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms & a laundry room. :-] i am SO excited. i cried -- a lot when i learned at first just how much work needed to be done and i didn't realize they were actually demoing all of my old bedroom & bath. i thought they were going to fix a leak in the roof and i could sleep on the couch for a few days with sheets over my stuff in my bedroom. slight misunderstanding and naiveness on my part :-] it was a very overwhelming feeling to have to get everything moved out of my room plus move the girls' room & jesus/ricardo's room. praise God i had some amazing girls from the forrest work team who hopped right in to help babysit and help move bedrooms. it was a stressful couple days until everything got "situated" for our short-term quick fix living situation. so, pictures from before demo... this is all from my bedroom & bathroom.
basically the forrest team had the fun part in my opinion. they got to hammer down walls and break stuff the whole time. haha THANK YOU FOR AAAAALL YOUR HARD WORK!
today i took the kids out to see what the cissna park team is up to. i'll give you a mini-update on the kiddos while i'm at it.
and this little guy is just simply thankful that soon he'll have a bedroom to sleep in again instead of a make-shift corner with a curtain for privacy :-]
