Changes are coming at the Hughes home. What kind of changes? Is that vinyl flooring getting installed? Is another baby on the way? Are the kids going to public school? The answer to all of those questions is a resounding NO! The changes that are coming are much subtler. First, we finally chopped down the mega overgrown lilac monstrosity in the backyard. We have a yard again. Then, we planted trees. 3 of them , 2 pear and one peach. Second, I painted the fireplace white. Why? Because it was March, and I felt like it. Third, we are going this weekend to check out some shower doors for the kids bathroom. I am sick of having a flooded bathroom or soggy towels on the floor. I do hate shower doors, but at least shower doors won't rot out the floor. And finally, I have been sleeping, hooray! As such, I have been able to get up at a reasonable time. We have been able to start school in the mornings and be done by lunchtime, leaving plenty of time for free play and imaginative kid stuff. Currently a sandbox castle is in the works. Happy day.
