Long story short...the flooring company put in the wrong - as in a completely different color of - floor. Tom left to join us in Wisconsin the same day the floor went in, so it wasn't until we returned from vacation that we walked into the office and discovered this disaster.
Another long story short...after nearly two months, the correct floor has been installed, the bill has been settled, and I can breathe a sigh of relief.
2. The fundraiser I mentioned in last Friday's post went off not without hiccups, but for the most part smoothly. We met all of our goals, the kids had a blast during their fun runs, and our fourth graders - after working together and putting in an incredible amount of effort - earned our school's first-ever color run. Win, win, win.
|Grace, Hallie, and Brandon the Brave, who|
spent the morning duct-taped to the flagpole.
|There she goes!|
|Sweet second graders after their fun run.|
|Fabulous fourth graders getting ready for their color run!|
|Fully colored and completely sweaty.|
|Getting (some of) the color blown off by our |
principal before heading back inside the school.
|Me and my boy.|
|Will with Grandma and Grandpa.|
|Will was extremely proud of his hair.|
|We may have gotten caught up in the color running ourselves...|
|When these kiddos came out of school last Friday |
afternoon they were hot, sweaty, exhausted, and SO happy.
Ok, ok...a couple of makeover teasers:
4. Tom's been in Washington D.C. all week for a conference but he returns home tonight...just in time to watch Hallie dance at a high school football game, and divide and conquer an out-of-town soccer game and nutcracker rehearsal with me. No rest for the weary...
5. Between Boosterthon, my parents visiting, and the family room makeover, I haven't yet had time to pull out all of my Halloween decorations. I did, however, find a few minutes to put up Halloween banners on the kids' bedroom doors; orange "tutu" pumpkins for Hallie and orange and black pompoms for Will. Just looking at these pictures makes me giddy for fall!
Happy Friday, Chasing Roots!
