Among the list for this summer was painting the entry way. David left the ladder up over night and instead of trying to tell the boys to stay off the ladder he took a different approach.
After one supervised trip up (or partly up, in William's case) they never touched it again. Not once. If you know boys, you know that is a small miracle.
Other things on our list this summer:
turn loft into Lahna's bedroom-check!
change window treatment in entryway-check!
redo mirror in master bath-check!
refinish playroom floor-um....still a work in progress.
...and who knows what will be added to the list between now and the end of summer.
