Woes Turned Into Wonderland

Last winter plumbing woes took out all of our downstairs floors and nearly half of all the walls,
simply put
it was a mess!

And it's been a lonnnnnnnnnng haul setting things to right,...
Isaac has learned the proper use of a measuring tape,...which he calls "Counting Tape" 
But the results have been worth all the trouble,
here is nearly the finished project 98% done,
with just a few more baseboards left to do,
the tricky ones that take lots and lots of measuring 
and even more patience to get right.

Of course as far as Isaac is concerned the living room is complete, 
and there is plenty of room for him to zoom about in his super-sonic style.
And now flip-flop
as the upstairs space where we've had our living room becomes an office/study/library
supposedly 'mine' with the understanding I'd be sharing with I.I.,
but I.I. 
considers this space to be HIS personal WONDERLAND
and who is going to argue
when Isaac is enthusiastic about working on
he-he-he,...therapy stuff.

Actually Isaac's therapy space was going to be located in a different local,
but serendipity has turned woes in wonderland,
and this office is working great as 
place to work on skills, 
especially since Isaac doesn't consider his time spent in the office as work,
Oh no,...this is fun stuff.

Forget kiddie books like Cat-in-the-Hat, Isaac wants to read more 'interesting' stuff.
Rocks and Minerals, anyone?
You have to admire any verbally challenged individual who wants to 
learn how to say
"Wenlock limestone with trilobite fossils"
"Hematite, Garnet-chlorite schist, Cinnabar, and Labrodorite."
Thankfully all can be easily categorized under the title

Woes to Wonderland,
the woes are never fun to go through,
and they have made a tough year even tougher,
but WOW
the wonderland for Isaac to explore

 As it usually happens in house renovations,
one project
turns into other,
and our  current project is
Isaac's bedroom
It's time our little big boy has a big boy room
and no doubt,
in Isaac's eyes it will be another wonderland!!!

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose" - Romans 8:28

Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!
