Not even a year ago, our son, Stephen, and his wife, Candace, moved into a home in a lovely neighborhood with big trees and lots of children. Besides the location, the house has a well-loved yard and a huge added-on family room with windows on three sides.
Since the move, they have had a second child.
Currently, they are in the middle of an exterior redo. So far, they have added a front portico. But next month, they will be painting, changing exterior lighting, and hanging window boxes. (I am waiting for the finished product before I post that big blog reveal.)
Just this past weekend, my husband and I worked with them on redoing the playroom. Because they have been so busy on the rest of the house and with their children, this room was just a place to keep toys out of the other rooms.
However, with preschool finished for the summer, Candace wanted to make this room more enjoyable for Caroline.
In less than twenty-four hours of grandparent-heaven,
the playroom looked like this:
Thank you, Stephen and Candace, for giving us the biggest gift--the privilege of loving and helping you!
(For those of you who missed the last post, it covered choosing paint colors and making bench seats for under the play-table.)
