So, exciting news… we rearranged our house. Well, most of it. The bathrooms, the kitchen, the dining room, and the laundry room remain untouched. The bedrooms, my office, and Jeremy’s office all found new homes. This was prompted by a gift of a loft bed for Madison. The girls have been asking for bunk beds. It was a potential for their birthday presents. Let’s just say their birthdays came a little early this year. They LOVE their new shared room. Madison loves sleeping up high. Jeremy and I love our grown-up room. Jeremy will love his new (never wet) office when we get that moved this week. It is a win-win. Especially when the girls finally slept until 7:45 this morning!
That being said, we have been in the house, organizing spaces, enjoying the newness since Friday night. But he girls (and myself) are getting a little stir crazy. I actually heard Madison utter, “I’m bored!” this week. This may be a normal occurrence in some homes, but I have been blessed by two girls with giant imaginations that rarely say those dreaded words.
So, on Monday, we went to the swim gym after naps to get out of the house. On Tuesday, we had a play date after naps with Grace and Tara. On Wednesday, I took them to the Massillon Museum. (Hence the title for this post…. you were wondering, weren’t you?)
The Massillon Museum is a small, free museum fairly close. I don’t think I have ever taken them to a museum, so I didn’t know what to expect. They looked at photographs. They found some they liked. (I didn’t see the sign to not take pictures on this level til we were leaving; I didn’t use flash. Does that make it okay?)
And, yes, I let my kids pick out their clothes.
We ventured up to the second floor to see the flapper dresses, the tribute to football, and the model circus. For whatever reason, they were in the mood to pose and kept asking me to take pictures!
The highlight was definitely the canon outside. I don’t know if she should have climbed on it, but there was no sign to say otherwise. So, I let her live a little…. and pose a lot!
A man chilling outside across the street wondered over to ask if we wanted our picture taken together. We did.
So, as many of your kids go back to school, just know that we are still here trying to figure out how to not be bored. I am little worried about the rest of the week…. hey, there is always the livestock auction, right?
