No more foam core! And it only took two-and-a-half years to do it!
I wasn’t kidding when I said we were tackling some of the window issues in F’s room. We ordered the blinds from Smith+Noble – they are similar to the ones in E’s room, but those were from Home Depot, and we’ve not been really pleased with the way they hang, so we opted for a little upgrade with these. I got the camera out to photograph the installation and one very happy (and curious) resident, and as soon as they were installed and opened and closed a few times, F grabbed her Prudence and jumped on the window seat saying “Mommy, take my picture with Prudence and my new window.” And then she smiled this fake-camera smile while I snapped and immediately demanded to see the camera screen. So much for feeling like I photograph my children without them ever really realizing it…
The next photos weren’t posed – it’s the kind of activity that happens around here when I simultaneously thank my lucky stars for big sisters, want to sit down in the corner and watch them interact like this, and work like mad to get something done (laundry/dinner/vacuuming) while the peace persists. I’m frequently torn. That night I just watched (and photographed). The laundry can wait.
Is it just me, or do they look older?
