All Done!


A couple of weeks ago I posted a picture of this old cabinet that I found in my basement.

My husband worked very hard to restore it for me. I was thrilled when he found this red Formica table with metal trim on Craigslist. He just attached it to the cabinet as the counter top, and I think it turned out great!

Now there's a great spot for my favorite "boys" to hang out while I work in the kitchen.

Oh, and if you read my blog regularly, you might remember this post I wrote on attending a home school co-op last month. I won't go into all the details, but it just so happens that I was able to start a co-op of my very own, right here in my home! We met this morning for the first time and had 18 children and 6 moms join us (and possibly 4 more next week)!
