This is the new art area. I have to organize the supplies on the shelves but it's a great start.
But finished or not, the kids wasted no time drawing, cutting, pasting and creating.
|This is the music area. Yes, everything is basically thrown on the shelves at the moment but it's there. It's already a very popular area. Even I enjoy sitting in the area and playing along with the gang.|
|This is the gross motor area. The kids can play in this area for hours on end. The cabinets hold games and puzzles.|
|This is a view from the other side of the gross motor area. I still need to take down the mirrors and put up the magnet board and chalk board. The art area is on the back side.|
|And this is the remaining mess. Ugh. I know it's probably not as bad as it looks. Once cleared out this will give the kids a place to ride tricycles and such.|
|This is the visual prayer board I have been planning to do for a while. The project was less than $15. I love it.|
|New verse in the kitchen above the french doors.|
I was having a rough day a few weeks ago and a friend posted this verse on my Facebook wall. It stuck with me. A lot. I decided it had to go on my real wall as well.
When my great grandmother passed away several years ago, she left each of the great grandchildren a small amount of money. I have saved it back since receiving it because I always knew it had to be spent on something special. I immediately realized that this is what I wanted to spend it on. I wasn't surprised when the grand total was within pennies of what she had left me.
My great grandmother was a godly woman. She prayed for me every day of my life, even before my birth. I feel so honored to have known her. I felt that this verse was a great tribute to her as well because I think it is something she would have said to me in our situation. So now not only do I get a critical reminder every time I'm in my kitchen, I'm reminded of her as well.
