Today, we woke up to a beautiful winter wonderland…and our first snow day of the school year!
We spent some time with the neighbours in our little culdesac, shoveling out everyone’s sidewalks and driveways, and playing with some of their dogs.
The kids were both exhausted and happy.
When we came back inside, I was getting hot chocolate and marshmallows in the kitchen and realized that somehow snow had come in from under the back door overnight. I moved the bookshelf and found a bunch of snow.
I cleaned it up and, while the bookshelf was moved and half of the kitchen floor was now clean and dry, I figured I would take advantage of it and start putting the laminate flooring I had bought last week, on at least that portion of the kitchen floor. For the last two years since we moved into our home, we just had the underflooring that had been hiding underneath the horrible flooring we had to pull out before redoing the kitchen.
Soon, my daughter got curious about what I was doing in the kitchen and the next thing I knew, she was helping!
Now we have a beautiful kitchen floor, that we laid ourselves…
…and my daughter has even asked if something new can be added to her chore chart: mopping the kitchen floor!
