We have discovered the fun world of beads. Isabelle has created a few bracelets and necklaces for us (and herself!) Its very fun to watch fine motor skills and creativity develop!

Very proud of the final product!

House update: Living room is finished with mud and tape, soon to be sanded. Back room is still being mudded. Entertainment system is being build into the wall.  I am within a few weeks of having my living room  back! I am so excited. 

Ponder this....

You're alive. Do something. The directive in life, the moral imperative was so uncomplicated. It could be expressed in single words, not complete sentences. It sounded like this: Look. Listen. Choose. Act.
