Nora is almost crawling. She gets on all fours and rocks back and forth and she can move her legs forward but then she rams her face into the carpet. Once she figures out how to move her arms forward she'll be driving her sisters crazy following them around where ever they go.

Jason is moving his studio out of the house. He took the first load of boxes to The New Studio this afternoon. It's very exciting for all of us. Jason is excited about have almost triple the amount of room and I am excited about turning the current studio into a schoolroom/playroom. I have a vision. Oh yes, I do. A vision of white and soft blue. Of shelves and knobs. Of space. So. Much. Space.  Of a stained cement floor with a colorful area rug.  Of a painted coffee table turned craft table and a painted china cabinet turned bookshelf. (Someone hand my mother the smelling salts.) I have a vision of order. And space. (Did I already say that? Sorry. I'm really excited about the space.)

I cleaned the kitchen for over 4 hours today. I meticulously cleaned the refrigerator and the pantry. I scrubbed baseboards and cabinet doors. I rearranged cabinets.  I tired.

This day has had its ups and downs but I'd say, overall it's been a good day. I'm looking forward to tomorrow. Church, family and friends. Never a bad combination.

I am so happy for you and your new space! Also for Jason and his new space. It's a win/win. I'm also jealous of your clean kitchen. You inspire me.

You are so adorable. Your blog always makes me smile and almost cry - it´s precious. Nora is adorable! And yes, I must say she does look like my baby pictures. Can´t WAIT to see your new SPACE!!! Wish I could be there to help you organize and beautify!
I dreamed about you the other night - all your kids were grown up like about the age of Adam´s kids...and I think you were asking me what you should wear...or something. I just remember you had on white tennis shoes. :)
Love you!
