May Happenings

Here is some this-and-that for you for May Happenings.  Lee found his pop-up books in the shed from his childhood.  The kids like looking at them.

A couple of times Haley has made deviled eggs.  She does some fun stuff in the kitchen!

The kids also had their yearly spring recital!  So fun!

And we found a great deal on a circle table...well, I think so, for our game room!  It's nice and big as well.

Elden had fun at a pack meeting in May.

And Clark had his first, last day of seminary.  Wow, that year went fast.  And what an awesome teacher he has!  He was with a fun group of kids as well.

New Flooring!

The story continues with switching rooms in our house.  One thing we decided to do was get new carpet in the kids' bedrooms downstairs, and redo the vinyl flooring in the laundry room. 

But first those random photos.  Like Shanna with these glasses that Clark brought back from Nicaragua.

And we enjoyed attending Clark's spring concert.  So fun hearing him play the keyboard for Jazz Band and the Baritone in Concert Band.

I thought these signs are our local garden store.

So I went through the girl's stuff and filled these two garbage bags full of junk and garbage.  Once we get them a dresser and they finish moving in to their room I will throw them away.  I am keeping them to see if they ask for anything in them.  So far, nothing!
May 17 2018 (8)

Here is that messy room I tackled....hence the two huge garbage bags.

The room after.  It is now the play room.  We still need to give a finishing touch to the room, but for now this is how it will be.
May 15 2018 (7)

And we found this cute picture that I love of Lee! 
May 15 2018 (6)

On to the new flooring....Lee got the carpet out of the two rooms downstairs.  It was quite the things to just get all the furniture out.  Especially taking about the bunk bed!
May 15 2018 (8)

Lots of staples to pull.  And I'm glad we went ahead with carpet.  One, it's cozy for bedrooms.  Two, there was significant termite damage in the wood flooring in the boys room.  It could have been fixed, but we are glad we went with carpet.

I never intended to replace this flooring in the laundry room.  I don't care about the laundry room as it's a utility room and more like a garage for us.  But the flooring started to peel and that makes bad flooring look even worse. Since we were having the carpet redone, might as well and get the vinyl redone as well.

Since Lee opened up the vision therapy clinic he has been sprucing up the other office space as well.  The building he is in is split in upstairs and a main floor. And with two separate entrances.  The flooring for the entrance that leads up to the vision therapy clinic looked horrible. We got that replaced as well.

Ah, they look so much better!

Clark also had an awards night for band and a party afterwards.
May 18 2018 (2)

The Father's and Sons was cancelled because of crazy weather, but there was still a fireside meeting at the Waynesboro Stake Center.  Clark was at his band award ceremony that night, but Cal, Elden and Lee went down to the stake center.  Afterwards they hit up Cookout and came home.

Ice cream at the fireside.

We took a Saturday to go to the temple and then hit up IKEA and Home Depot on the way home.  We bought some things for the rooms, like chairs for the game room and bookshelves and cabinets for family room.

Haley bought this at Walmart for $2.  It's so funny!

I was in charge of the Priesthood and Temple prep event for 11 year-olds.  I made these cute handouts for them.  And by made I picked up the frames at IKEA, bought the printable at an Etsy shop, printed them off and framed them.  The program I did make. I copied someone else's idea but created it step by step all on my own.  I spent way too much time on that!
