Exploding Paint Pen!

I was helping Kayli with a project this afternoon. I opened up a paint pen and it exploded all over the place! It got on Jared’s face and eye. I spent about 15 minutes running water in the eye to make sure I got it all out. His eye looks fine, isn’t red at all. But the paint is on his eyelids and face. I’m sure it will wear off eventually. He says his eye doesn’t hurt, so it must be fine.

Here’s a close-up of just the eye.

Day 17

The new roof was finished today.

The plumbers were also here today to move the tub back to make room for the shear panel that has to go on that wall.

Twins’ Preschool Mother’s Tea

They had their annual Mother’s Tea at the Twin’s preschool yesterday. (Jared is in yellow and Riley is in blue.) The kids have been practicing songs for it for weeks! They all looked so cute singing the songs and doing the hand motions. Jared and Riley did very well, singing along and doing all the hand motions. After they finished their songs, the kids gave their mom’s the cards they had made and the planters they had painted, complete with a plant. Riley told me he painted it all purple because that was my favorite color. I felt so bad for the two little kids who didn’t have anyone there for them. Things like this are so important to a little child. I’m sure they will remember for a long time that their mom wasn’t there for them that day.
