Counting... pullups

I took this video just before they started school. It was just before bed so the lighting is poor, but it shows them doing some counting.

I wonder what they are going to think of these posts and videos when the get older. Right now, they are very interested in seeing themselves. I showed this video to them and they love pointing to themselves and each other on the computer monitor.

Second Floor, Gone Up.

Here's a couple pics i took today.

Second floor is up and we were walking around on it.  Its looks really high up when there isn't a window stopping you from falling.

Staircase needs to be added, and the garage still needs to be re-built.  But the roof goes on next week, and the windows and siding after that.  The house should be sealed by in the next couple weeks...at least we will be prepared for the winter.

week old construction

Been rather busy with the renovation.  Haven't had a chance to post anything.

I'll make up for that over the next couple days.

Here are a couple pictures of the second floor being framed.  This was taken last weekend...so this is the framing progress after a week.

There are lots more photos on our picasaweb album.  you can get to it from the Other Links menu above.

I'll post some recent photos later to show the progress.

Pre-School photos

So the kids started at the local Montessori school.  We had to provide photos to the teacher, figured I would post them here.
They are growing well, but they are skinny just like mommy and daddy (when i was a kid).  Doctor's appointment this week shows them at 26 lbs. and 24 lbs. for Aidan and Kira, respectively.
And Aidan is officially 3 feet tall.  Kira is 2 inches shorter.

Here are the portrait closeups...

Look ma! No roof!

Or alternate title would be "Raze the roof".

Quick picture I took last week.

Roof has been replaced by a large blue tarp.  Of course it rained the day after and we had water all over the floor.

Ugh.  If we ever do this again, shoot me.

Gutting the insides

Well there goes the fireplace...the kitchen, the living room, a bedroom and the pantry.

demolition is amazing.

A look at the kitchen, or where it used to be:

You see the fireplace?

Now you don't.

Just a small hole in the roof:

Its amazing the amount of space thats there now.

School hair cuts

They have started preschool and to prepare they got haircuts.  It's something Inessa and I dread a little because they cry and fuss a lot during.  We were fully anticipating a big brew ha, but before we knew it, Aidan was climbing into the car shaped chair.
Clearly there's a difference between 2 and 2.5 years of age.  There was absolute quiet and they listened to the hair stylist.  Color me shocked.
