|My littles: Benjamin (4.5) and Madeleine (2.5)|
To make up for the loss of books, we checked out stacks and stacks of library books. (Nothing makes me quite so nostalgic for childhood as the feel of a crinkly library cover.)
|Not even the half of it!|
Inbetween reading and playing and cleaning, I emptied boxes.
|This is our stack of boxes waiting to be broken down. As soon as the stack goes away, more boxes instantly appear....|
After naptime, Benjamin headed out to the back patio for grapes and milk in the warm Oregon sunshine.
As a reward for all the unpacking, I allowed myself a few minutes to work on our mantel. It's still a work-in-progress but it makes me happy every time I see it. I bought the Louvre poster in Paris 13 years ago and I can't imagine ever having it far from my everyday.

We also took a moment to take pictures for Father's Day. A happy tiring day :)
|Silly happy kiddos in front of our new house!|
|The father of my children and love of my life.|
