Did I really miss ALL of May?!?! Ugh. I failed at my streak of posting once a month. Here is a quick post about a project that has been on my mind ALL of May: The Swingset. Every time I'd look out our back door I'd have a conversation in my head that went like this, "that would probably only take me 45 minutes to do, I have to buy stain the next time I'm in town." Do you want to know how many times I'd forget to pick up stain?? I have come to realize that I am useless without a list. My brain can only keep track of so much and so far keeping track of four kids seems to be my limit. Thankfully I haven't left anyone at the hardware store (knock on wood). I suppose this is success in my world.
I found this new version of stain at our little hardware store:
It felt very good to cross this project off my To Do List.
*Update, I just found a before picture from Mother's Day and the guys were playing our favorite yard game "Kan Jam" (that could be a whole different post!). ;) If you can see past Ben getting ready to make his killer shot, the swingset was pretty faded!
