So the first thing we decided to tackle were the 2 bedrooms on the main floor. We are turning them into the master bedroom and master bathroom. We closed off the one bedroom from the hallway and made an entrance into the other bedroom, which will be the bathroom. Now we have to figure out the layout of the bathroom. It seems like a good amount of space for a bathroom, but we may be struggling with this for a few weeks. We are trying to keep the window where it is. We do not want to cut any brick at this point. We are also removing all the interior doors and trim to update them. All floor coverings are also coming up. This started out as so much fun!
Well obviously I am years behind. We moved about 6 weeks ago. We bought a house that needs a little bit of love to make it our own. It is a 1972 ranch. Here are the before pictures. I am super excited about the large family room with the green carpet and gas fireplace and mantle! It will get a makeover, so that will be fun! New kitchen, baths, and can you believe the basement? 1972 flashback for sure! Yes that is rock vinyl on the walls. We found some on the floor in a closet once we started demo! I will post some updated pics as we get work done!

I don't know if any of the kids do too much work the last week of school! Today the high school kids played mud volleyball. Lexi said she would have had more fun if it hadn't started to hail! This weather has been so crazy! We have had tons and tons of rain. I guess lots of rain makes for great mud volleyball!
Caden had his May Day Program today. I remember doing a May Day Program when I was a kid, and it was always so much fun to do the May Pole. The 5th graders do the May Pole at Caden's school. Caden's class sang some songs and did a dance. The theme was "You've Got A Friend"
