Vbs is over. It was fun but exhausting as always. We had about 18 a kids a day in my room, the kids who just finished 3rd grade. Our theme was SonForce Kids.
I’ll try to upload a shot of one of my decorations. It’s supposed to be a space ship control panel.
The men arrived promptly at 8 am. They were friendly and had a way about them that calmed my nerves. They set up all their equipment and made lots of noise. They worked through until about 5 pm until it was finished. It isn’t perfectly flat, but it is no longer sunken, which is wonderful! There was a crack in the brick wall over the fireplace and that disappeared as well. I’m so glad to have that done! However, now the floor is bare and we need some sort of covering – tile? carpet? wood?
I’m making all my decorations for vbs which is next week. One wall will be water with hanging fish and along the ‘shore’ will be river rocks, shells, and baby Moses floating in a basket. Another wall will have a robot and control panel overlooking the galaxy. I’ve been spending the past several days working on these and will share pictures after I set my room up after church on Sunday.
I haven’t written in awhile I see. Two weeks ago the girls and I went to the national zoo to meet one of the women off my board – one of the moderators. It was the first time we ever met in real life, but it didn’t feel that way. We had a great day (although it was super hot!) Since we’ve known each other for years online, it was very easy to talk about things and we got along great. Our kids had a good time, too, and wished we would be able to get together again. But she was visiting from out of state, so I don’t know how often we’ll be able to get together.
This week we are having some work done on our house. When we bought the house last summer, the family room had a dip in the concrete in the family room. On Thursday, men are coming to straighten it out. They will put holes in the concrete and insert a liquid plastic that will raise it up. They’ll pump it in like you pump gas in your car. It should be very interesting to watch! And I can’t wait to see the results! We had to pull up the carpet in that room and scrape the tiles underneath today. And Dan had to remove one wall that will probably raise up with the floor and could have done some damage to the upper level.
We are excited to get the floor done, but I know it will take some time before the new flooring (probably tile) will be finished and before all the walls are drywalled. I hate messiness, so this will drive me crazy and stress me out! But I know one day it will look nice and am thankful that the Lord is providing for it all to be fixed!
