I dutifully stayed away from home most of the day. Spent the day having coffee talking with a couple friends and doing my grocery shopping. I was allowed back home at about 4:30.
The kids had been working all day on the bathroom. And of course it has taken them a lot longer than planned. But we are going to have a beautiful bathroom down there. I hope little sister realizes what a gift she is getting from her big brother and sister-in-law. What they have done is place slate tile around the tub instead of a plastic tub surround. A big job but we have had this slate around for about a year thinking that we would use it on the entry way. So they were able to use something we already had on hand and make a bathroom that is nothing short of elegant.
I have such handy kids. They must get it from my side of the family 🙂
