After a long process of pressure washing, scraping and wire brushing the entire house (which was 98% Jeff's doing since I found out I am pregnant again at the beginning of the process), it's paint time! Jeff and Randy went ahead and purchased the scaffolding, which made the job a billion times easier, plus it provided hours of entertainment for the boys.
Jeff, Randy and Asa worked on the balusters for the upstairs porch. The old ones were the pits and had to go. Asa did a great job of sanding! We're hoping to get them painted tomorrow.
I'm glad we had already come to the conclusion that we needed to move closer to family because now that we have a surprise baby #4 on the way (and for those trying to add up the months... our youngest is almost 11 months old right now, so these two will be 17 months apart!) I will need family nearby more than ever. Also, the need for bedrooms has exceeded the speed at which we could finish the attic, so we have even more need to find a wonderful family who will love our home as much as we do.
