We finally redecorated the bathroom that adjoins my office! My oldest daughter, Brooke, was my interior decorator because she's much better at that sort of thing than I am. Ben was my laborer. Didn't it turn out well? It's very girly! I wish I had taken "before" pictures, but I always forget. Anyway, the bathroom was last decorated twelve years ago for my now-twenty-three-year-old son, so you can imagine. It had beige walls, American flag floor mats, a denim shower curtain, and the matching towels long ago went off to college with my son. In case you are wondering, I took a close-up picture of the switch plate to show the wonders of the new metallic spray paints. We've painted quite a few of our switch plates at home and at the lake with various metallic colors, and they've turned out great! It's a huge savings to spray a plain, plastic switch plate too, rather than buying new ones for several dollars a piece.
One year ago today we met Ephraim for the first time. What amazing year this has been and what an amazing little boy we have. We are so blessed! I can't imagine our life without him. Here is a link to our first meeting.
I'm a work-at-home mom of thirteen children ranging in age from twenty-six years old to five months old. Eight are home grown and five were adopted internationally (Russia, Guatemala, Vietnam and Ethiopia). We live on an 85-acre farm, and we have home schooled since 1986. My husband is a family physician in solo practice. I manage his practice and file the insurance claims.
