Dry Cleaning!

Having a bathtub in our living room has been grand fun this week! Not only is there the tub, but also the box it came in! Wahoo! The box is currently the art museum. It has been a slide, a fort, a tunnel, etc. When I was in kindergarten the teacher had an old clawfoot tub that was filled with pillows. It was used as the reading nook. I've wanted one ever since. I even look on Craig's List once in awhile but they are too expensive and the cheap ones need refinishing.

Avrie and just a few of her kitties hanging out after breakfast. Actually, she wore her pajamas all day so I really don't know if it was after breakfast or not. I guess that's not a good way to gauge the time a picture was taken around here!

Rub-a-dub-dub, three kids in a tub!

Nolan snuggled up with Cole and read him stories for half an hour.

A bathtub without water is a wonderful way to contain a crawling baby!

Pre-nap storytime in the tub this afternoon.

And THAT is the little girl you expect us to believe is a little booger? She looks awfully sweet and innocent to me!

the class next to micah has a bathtub reading nook - looks awesome! is cole crawling already?

Amber said...

I can't believe he's crawling already...I hope Archer waits awhile. We bought an old clawfoot for $25 and bought a kit from Menards to refinish it. It didn't hold up well with water, but probably would for a reading nook. Really cute idea...

Kids find great amusement in the little things! Sounds like you all had fun today!
Remember, a while ago, when you were talking about not being able to find SunIn, I found it. WalMart has it, which you may not be to fond of, but I looked everywhere else I went and that is where I found it.

I would love to have a whirlpool that I could throw pillows in and read---even if I used it for water later in the day!

Cute, cute, cute. Who knew that the only thing I'm really missing is a bathtub in my living room for a reading nook. Better go check out Craigslist and see if I can find one. ;) Love the picture of Nolan reading to his baby brother. So sweet.
