This week was very exciting! We transformed this:
So, I guess our afterschooling this week was primarily learning about how you replace a floor. Or cover it up, technically. I could already touch our ceiling standing on my toes, and now I only have to lift half my foot off the ground to reach it. I would have loved to remove the tiles, but those things were grouted in like I never saw before. So, they got to stay, hidden by some gorgeous wood. It’s amazing what a difference a calm floor makes in a home, especially when you have a swirly, low-set ceiling.
This project, though, was a ton of work! We hired someone to install the actual floor, but I had to empty out each room the night before, find somewhere to put the stuff, unpack the next day… Didn’t quite finish the unpacking bit, because the day after they finished the floors we packed up and drove up north! We’re spending this next week in Montreal, doing a lot more unschooling than afterschooling! Mike’s mom and grandma are along for the trip, so it’s great grandparent time as well!
With summer officially over, I also took a look at our Summer Bucket List. We did pretty well, apart from my still-abandoned sewing projects and my vain attempts to rescue blueberries and strawberries from our local wildlife.
