Well about 99% done.  There is still a little touch up painting and trim to do and find a mirror/medicine cabinet but it is now a functional bathroom.  Here are some before and after pics.

Thankfully we are finally done.  I am sure my weekends will now be nothing but rest and relaxation.  Except for wanting to redo the flooring upstairs, prepare and paint the new baby room, build a shed, clean the garage….

Last Saturday, Henry graduated from his first gymnastic class at Starr Gymnastics. I ended up bringing him with my sister Melissa while Chris stayed home working on our last bathroom needing renovations. It was a crazy busy class. It was parent day so there was a large crowd and we did every station (usually you only do half of them) so every 5 minutes, we were whisking Henry off to the next station. Thank god Melissa was there with me since I wouldn’t have been able to do it all myself. Such as going into the foam pit. Had I gone in there with him, there’s no way I could have climbed out. I’m so proud of my little guy. He’s come a very long way since he started the class and can do so many things now. We’re signed up for the next session and I know Henry will just keep getting better and better. Anywho, here are a few pics from his last class.

Before class, reading the paper with dad.
