“Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory.”
— William Barclay
My bet is you wouldn’t be too surprised to hear that our days are still primarily spent keeping a certain little toddler busy.
I mean, honestly, she’s a handful of the best entertainment we could ask for.
Pretty sure I wouldn’t trade her for a thing.
She’s loving her new Montessori-inspired playroom, so that’s encouraging. Colby and I worked really hard on it.
Additionally, after giving the girls a few dollars of redecorating budget for their rooms, Jaden took us up on it this week.
She wanted to transform her closet into a space for her twin bed. And she wanted in done in a Bohemian inspired theme.
Jaden made the valance herself, as well as several other pieces of her finished room.
It turned out pretty nice once we finished.
Speaking of Chey, they got settled into their new home this week.
Riley loves the big back porch and outdoor space. It backs up to a nice green area that leads to the lake.
Plus, she got some new Play-Doh this week that has become her favorite thing to do indoors.
Pretty sure she has some sensory needs similar to her Aunt Joeli. Having Joeli work with an OT when she was a toddler helped prepare us for this moment.
And this guy?
He simply continues to be my rock. Working as much as he can to help us pay the bills through this pandemic.
I love him.
And love how he helps me do the crazy things. We worked on getting our travel trailer cleaned up and ready to launch soon!
We did some of the last finishing touches we’ve been holding onto.
Small projects we worked on at home that needed to make their way into the RV trailer.
But don’t worry! We also made sure to get some play time in!
No sense working too hard that we forget about the element of fun that keeps us going.
She loved exploring the travel trailer each time they came to visit.
The bunkhouse is definitely her favorite. Can’t wait to take her on her first trip in the trailer.
Everything in due time!
