HA-konets (finally!)

Last night we finally got our long awaited bookshelves! The guys delivered them and then set them up. This is a piece designed by Tom. It was custom built for around 700$. If we had purchased this in a store it would have been around 2000$. We are grateful for friends who watch out for us. The man who built them also did the Olya's mother's kitchen! Lena and Olya assured me of how the quality of his work so we had him over to measure and give us an estimate. He is also going to do shelves for Nathan and Spencer's rooms. And built Tom and I new closet. We are going slow with the furnishings. Only purchasing things by priority and as we can afford it.

Today at school we spent the whole break time laughing. Tom and Joyce B. kept us all in stitches. They went from quoting movie lines to Satuday Night Live sketches. Some of the younger students just listened and laughed. We have been watching Saturday Night live since the days of John Belushi. Tom and Joyce came up with an idea for a sketch involving sidekicks from various TV shows. They came up with a long list of names like Festus from Gunsmoke and Barney Fife from Mayberry RFD.

Spencer had a hard time keeping a straight face in class. Towards the end of the school day Judi H. waved at Spencer through the glass doors and made faces at him. After Judi it was Tania the director's turn. She waved her arms back and forth really big. You know, like "look over here!" Spencer could barely contain himself. Goar, our teacher noticed Spencer was looking at someone and tried to see who was out there!

We got a package from Andover, Kansas. "BIG THANKS" to John P. for the new 501 Verbs book! Posted by Picasa

  1. Thanks for visiting my site. I love the bookcases. I'm in the process of building my own king size headboard.

    Keep up the good work!
