Thought I would post the newest pictures of my special little people.

Kyleigh Grayce Boatwright will be 6 years old August 17th. She is quite the artist.

She goes to art classes one day a week, has since she was 3 years old. You can see her art posted on the web at:

The big thing is, this year she was old enough to enter some things in the fair. Kristen entered 5 of Kyleigh's art pieces she had done in class. She apparently got a first, 3 seconds, and we don't know yet about the 5th one. I get to attend the special ceremony in a couple of weeks for this. Last week she attended art camp called art of Africa, and she had some outstanding pieces, I am going to post below.

Jaeger Montie John Boatwright is 3-1/2 and still in love with trains, cars, and pirates. He loves the Lego pirate ship at Gramma's house, and the Treasure Island, although he has taken a bunch of it apart again, and Gramma is going to have to get the instructions back out to put it together. He tells everyone "Gramma's my special boy", meaning he is Gramma's special boy. Last week, Kristen and I were trying to get them out of the house, as I had to get John's dinner served before he went to work, and Kristen and Jeff were going to pick up Jeff's BD bike, and the kids were thinking of every reason not to leave. I finally told them "I have to feed Papa dinner". Jaeger came up with "Are you going to feed Papa like a little baby". It was so funny at the time, that he came up with this.

The beginning of October or end of September we will be seeing our newest little Boatwright, Keaton, and Jaeger is ready to share his room with his brother.

John has been finishing up on the floor this week, and putting down the new molding, which he created from using a molding and another strip of wood at the bottom. It is so night to have my furniture back in place, along with my dolls and pictures out again. The deacon's bench, directly in front, is where I store a lot of my quilts.

The antique cherry floors look great against the blue walls. I was even able to change my quilts on the walls, now that all the dust is not flying around.

We have also decided to stain the bifold doors that go into the family room the same cherry stain he stained the molding around the floors. We have 1 door stained, and the other door hasn't been so far.

This is a picture of the entry floor before we put the furniture back in.

I am a

What Flower
Are You?

I haven't had much time to post recently. Have been learning the ropes of a new company to do transcription for, and actually work on three different hospital accounts all over the country. It is a full time job, plus have been doing my own work on the side. Haven't had time to sew or quilt either. Maybe it is having the extra furniture in there from the floor project below that makes me feel claustrophobic right now.

The new floor project is winding up thankfully, after four months. John started laying the Pergo in the entry last week, got the entry done, the one hall going to one spare bedroom, and the laundry room done,
and is working on the hallway by our bedroom, my office and sewing room. It is an antique cherry and I love it. It looks so wonderful. I guess this weekend he will be staining up some samples on wood to see what
color I want the new baseboards. I will get a picture of the entry/front room floor after work today, and I get the empty boxes picked up. I can't wait to get my house back together and all my pictures, dolls out again.
What will be a trick is moving the heavy deacon's bench, and piano back in the front room without messing up the floor.
