Mural Update

Susan helped Mari out for a few minutes today, trying to get the second coat done so she is ready to outline when the black paint markers arrive.
Not to be outdone, I am working on a simpler mural on the rest of the basement walls.

Projects

Mari participated in a cupcake challenge, attempting to make a cupcake that looks like everyone in the family.
Each kid with their cupcake.
We have been looking for a new dresser for the girls’ room. Our neighbors were getting rid of this purple one, so Susan snagged it and fixed it up.
The older kids bundled the sticks and branches that we trimmed off our back hedge, just in time for the free pickup.

Mari’s Mural Update

Today Mari worked on transferring her mural projection onto the wall. She freehanded most of it, but used the yardstick in the top corner where the projection came up short.

The Enneagram

I think this is pretty cool. The kids all took a simple Enneagram test today and when Susan and I took the test our highest areas came back opposite. I am not surprised and it is one of the reasons I think we work so well together.

Mari’s Mural

During the break we decided to paint the basement. Mari decided to take it one step further and is paint a mural on one wall. She drew up some drafts and a friend let us borrow a projector. Mari copied her ideas onto a clear sheet and she is off!

Tuesday Walk

It was a nice day today, and we weren’t the only ones looking to get out on a walk. Nearly everyone on the trail did a great job with their social distancing.

Daily Walks

So, it looks like we will be taking a walk every day. The sequence of events today really reminded us of life on the RV trip. We worked and did practical things all day and then in the evening we took a walk, before a late dinner. I have a feeling we have many more days like this to come.
