One of the things I wanted when I first got the idea for our Home Team is to reach out to women outside of our immediate group. We meet on Fridays and take turns working our tails off, but some women who might need some help around the house may not be able to take Fridays off of work.
So this week we painted at Kelsey's house. Kelsey and her husband recently bought a fixer-upper which they have basically gutted, and until it becomes liveable, they are living with family. Kelsey, you had us at "living with family". Maybe we can help you get home a little sooner!
There really is not much to show from this day. It was SO HOT, and the AC in the house was not functioning at its best. By the end of the day we were a little silly from the fumes, and I may or may not have rolled a full paint roller down Sarah's face. And she may or may not have returned the gesture.
But, for the sheer purpose of having some "before" shots of the house, here's what we got:
Today we got two rooms - ceilings and walls painted. I think that's a pretty good day's work! I'm sure it feels good to show a little progress, too.
I love the idea of women working together to help build their homes.
As always, the kids were in the background, and sometimes the foreground. They spent their time outside blowing bubbles, and inside drawing with sidewalk chalk on the bare floors. They loved it!
