April 22nd (Tuesday) was a busy day for Emma. While Rob was at work, Emma tutored from 8am-11am. Claire came over at 9am so her mom could teach preschool. She was there until 2pm. The window guys showed up at 10am to put nine windows in our house. Claire was terrified of the workers (too loud). I don't know how much tutoring was actually done. Rob came home and loved the windows. Unfortunately, we couldn't put the blinds back up because the caulk was still drying. Rob left Wednesday at noon for Boise and then on to Michigan. That means I got to put up all the blinds. I am now a window blind hanging expert! I don't know how we did it, but somehow we managed to survive. We always do.
None of my before pictures turned out well. It was too dark in the house and too bright out side. Oh well. You can see in the very first picture though, the sliding door on the top and the white window on the bottom. It was the first time we could see out the bottom window. There was too much moisture in them before. Also, we took out the slider and framed it up. Eventually we would like to take off the smoking deck as well.
