Busy, Busy

The last few weeks has been unusually busy.  We've had new carpet installed in two bedrooms upstairs, and we're turning over the condo after having wonderful renters for three years.  It's very difficult to get major work like painting done with two young children so I've done a lot of the house work during nap times, and Davin's been spending most evenings at the condo.  Let's just say we're both pretty tired but things will hopefully slow down soon.

In other news Desmond is doing well with homeschooling and can read small books.  He's quite the little helper and recently has been eager to do extra chores to earn a little spending money.  I love seeing how he's growing in so many ways.

Kaylynn just moved into her new big sister room.  She was with Desmond for about a week while we ripped out carpet and painted so it's nice to have them back in their own rooms again.  She has more space now and the baby will get the small room.  Kaylynn's also recently started drawing people in her doodles.  So cute!  Also she has taken quite an interest in her wardrobe.  She changes her outfit multiple times a day and has definite opinions on what shirt goes with what pants.  

Baby is doing well and moves a lot.  I wish I could peak inside to see what in the world he or she is doing in there!  Only about ten weeks left.

We got our Christmas tree last weekend and the house feels festive for Christmas.  The outside lights are only halfway done and I forgot to water the tree for the last few days, but hey, life is happening around here and we do what we can when we can.  I'm learning to simplify and try to let go of my perfectionistic ways and overachiever goals.  A happy, healthy home is my goal so I have to remind myself about what's really important when my to do list is longer than the hours in the day.  I still need to take time to build LEGOs and play ring-around-the-rosie.  The cleaning can wait... though the laundry needs washed sometime.
