It's the most wonderful time of the year

I am reminded today of a commercial a few years back of somber-looking children walking down aisles of a store with excited parents who were throwing school-supply items into their cart with glee. Throughout the scene this typically-Christmas song is playing! Today is the first day of school for Kristianna and Wesley. Isabel had a tearful moment this morning but I am confident she will soon love her new status of queen of the log castle! Our morning routine has a new face this year as Susan is also getting ready at the same time to go teach. Our counters now see coffee as well as the typical kefir the kids have every morning.
Dad W. is up today helping Kris with the walls. Our cabinets are in the house (in boxes) so it is a bit crowded at the moment but I hope to be able to post a picture of the walls soon to let you see how nice they are looking.
I hope you are finding a reason to celebrate your day as well!

I remember that commercial!...so funny! Our pet rabbit even seems happy the house is silent as he is running and leaping all over the place! :)

Next post, Betsy! I won't post the stack of boxes of canned items in my dining room, however! :) See you in a few hours.
