House Paint (cont.)

In Paul's spare moments he has been on a ladder with a paint brush in his hand. He seems to be very busy these past few weeks. He is still getting together with the Brain Trust once a week for the development of the Welcome back clinic.

We are very busy at the office and are seeing a wonderful amount of growth. We are adding another Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) in September and there is talk of even more growth on the horizon. We are outgrowing our space but won't be ready to look into a building of our own for another 2 years or so. We are considering looking for a larger space to rent for the next couple of years. Things are moving fast for us on a professional level and that is keeping Paul and I on our toes.

I have been working on our accounting and getting our year end wrapped up for our accountant. Lots of time on the front room floor with papers piled around me and th ten-key clicking away. I am thinking I will have that all wrapped up by the end of the week.

I think I got side tracked there. Here is what the outside of the house looks like today:

We are excited to be having a rotary exchange student; Pablo from Ecuador; to be joining our family on Sunday. I am sure you all remember Marianna (who we still keep in contact with) Marianna if you read this post give a shout out to us, we miss you! who is from Brazil. We also had Alex from Australia stay with us when PJ and Bass were babies and Q was not even born yet.

We have done a bit of rearranging to give him some space of his own. I decided to see my big weight set downstairs and was thinking of using the room downstairs for storage or a craft room. When we found out we got to be a host family for Pablo, we decided he might want to be downstairs for a bit of privacy and we would not double up our kids upstairs.

Deb gave us Layne's old bed for SeaBass and SeaBass's bed went downstairs for Pablo. I know it looks a bit plain down there now, but I figure once he moves in he may want to move things around or add things to make it his own space. I have given Pablo and his family a link to this blog so if you are reading, don't worry the doll house down there still needs to be moved, we won't leave it there for you!

Here are some pictures of the inside of the house, this one is a bit washed out but I think you get the idea of how the paint came out. (Whoops, one picture, I meant to post more but must have missed one)

And a few of Grandpa George doing an experiment with the kids while he and Grandma Judy were here.

Is Grandpa George sporting a motorcycle poker run muscle shirt? Hmm. They just don't make grandparents like they used to.

I love that the entire family has Hooter shirts! That kicks ass. Are there Hooters in Canada?
Glad to hear of the business booming, that's always a good sign. I really like the inside of the house, the color is great, you did a good job.
HOw long will Pablo be there?

All the painting looks great! Do you have any finished knitted projects for us to see?

Hi Kelly, the house looks great. Paul needs to speed it up a bit on the outside...I bet he'll have it complete by this weekend : ) It was nice to have Paul and Sebass visit last weekend. Sebass had to correct our rules on Mancala... Jovan was insisting he was right. We taught him wrong... we didn't remember all the rules from our last visit to Kamloops.

I love the brown, I finally found a sand color I like to paint our house....It's so hard finding the "perfect" color.
The outside will look great as well. Good color choice.
Yes the office is getting a little squishy.
