Pretty & Happy
I love being busy with fun projects. As Daddy has said countless times about me, "I love the smell of construction in the morning!" Today, the construction crew is here to install three doors on the main level and 2 windows downstairs in the laundry room and family room. Exciting! Here are two of the doors being installed. I love the color, btw. This is Benjamin Moore's Tulsa Twilight which we had a bit of white added to make more of a Plum Royale. This coordinates well with the Sandtone and Terratone colors we have around the door and window frames of the house. The house is also made of Chicago pink brick which coordinates well with the color. Yippee!

Fun and Funny
The painted lady caterpillars are 3 times the size they were when we received them.
The tent caterpillar the kids caught at the art museum emerged as a dingy, brown moth. He loves to stay near his chrysalis. I can't believe this little experiment worked.
The kids have been busy memorizing lines, painting sets, and scheduling practice and performance times for their play. They will be performing the last scene in Twelfth Night for all the parents in August. Meanwhile, I'm busy making a couple costumes for the twins, Viola & Sebastian. I love these kinds of projects!
The kids had breakfast and line memorization on the deck to be out of the way of the workers.
This is a corset-style vest which will have a peplum, lining, and a sleeve added today. This is Viola's. Sebastian's will be blue.
