We finally put together the baby's new crib last week. I spent the day cleaning his room, and the kid's room.

Remember, Self...once these rooms were clean. The beds were MADE!

I love these rooms! The eaves, the wood, the quilts. The spongebob pillow...Nice work.
Slanted ceilings are up there amongst my very favorite things.
I'd better be allowed to shack up somewhere in August. Yes!
Miles' room looks great. His rug's like a little metropolitan mecca. One day when he's a famous urban planner I'll say ahhh I know what inspired this.

I like these nice, clean rooms, too - but I think it's just a little sad (funny) that Miles' room has Jack's name center stage. And, I like that the elder three sleep so close together since our FOUR share a room and I feel less guilty when I see the close quarters. Thanks for that.

I was wondering if anyone would notice that flaw...the "Jack" name stays until we can make it back to Santa Monica to have another made for Miles.

Kids like to share rooms, especially at this age, right?

Yes, especially at this age!
It looks like a real BEDroom!
Very good work, Sarah!

Haha, cherish it! That's a good idea, I should take a picture of my kids' rooms when they're clean and the beds are made, just to remind myself that it really does happen sometimes...I love the kids' rooms, by the way :) Very cute.

Summer in Florida

This is our fourth summer in Florida- a number that amazes me.  I still don't feel at home here, although  I know my way around.  I don't feel completely out of place in the supermarket, but I have this suspicion that everyone knows I'm not from here, and they know that they don't know me.  That special kind of paranoia belongs to the homesick, and even while I acknowledge its foolishness, I still feel it.
Summers- I may have mentioned this before- are the worst. 
     It's partly an issue of comfort, or rather, of discomfort.  The long summer days are hot and sticky, the bugs are ravenous and abundant, the plants are vindictive with thorns and poison, and the air itself is attempting to decompose your body 37% faster than air in dryer climes.*  If there is a spring or pool to soak yourself in, it's fine, pleasant, even, because there are no ticks in the water, and you can usually avoid mosquitoes under the water.  To Florida's credit, there are any nu…
Brother Job texted his sweetheart, although we didn't know it was his sweetheart taking him away from us.
In September, we were gifted a wonderful stay at a fellow pastor's vacation home- a lovely little pink house with shells everywhere and two huge rooms just perfect for all of us.  We were just a walk away from the white sands and calm, clear ocean, and we spent more time than my pale and sand-hating husband understood, but it was just lovely.  I have pictures on my phone, but I only pulled out my big camera for these few on the first day.

It had a fenced yard for the dog, a golf cart to drive us the two blocks beachward and lots and lots of shells and quality family time.  This was the trip that we watched Knight Rider together, so that's notable.
