Normally, Max and Sam go to ice skating class on Saturdays. Today Sam had to work, so instead he brought his sis and mom.
Maddie cheered, "Go, Max, Go!" which thrilled Max.
Almost as much as the highlight of every lesson - the zamboni.

As the tile back splash gets redone into something less likely to date itself 5 years down the line. And maybe something a little less brown.
The work revealed some of the things one does when they are flipping a house - for example - that brown block is marble from the original back splash, which they then put 2x4 over and then drywalled.
Jess is trying to take Tante's advice and just breathe.

But not without her brother on the floor, who desperately wanted to sleep in his own room. Maddie said she would be scared; perhaps Jess felt a little of the same. After all, Maddie is so high up and so far away (the farthest room in the house from the master). Both Jess and Maddie made it through the night fine, although Jess felt wistful the entire next day.

Ta-da!! The floors are finally done, and need just one more day before furniture can be moved in.
The fam waits in the studio apartment, aka master bedroom, they have all been sharing.
Here's a glance at what the floors looked like before - good from afar, laminate from aclose.

The opening of the bags they made.
All the Tiny Tigers in a circle, waiting for their turn to hand out valentines.
Max hands one to his #1 - Stella.
In the Little Folks room, there was less of a feeling of controlled chaos, as kids were actually patiently waiting.
The Little Folks also got to use knives, albeit plastic, to spread their cream cheese.

In his new bedroom.
All along Maddie has insisted she wanted her own room in the new house, with no Max. And along Max has insisted he wanted a room in the new house, with Maddie. Because all of the room are still stuffed with furniture while we wait for the floors to acclimate, the kids bedrooms are not actually fully dressed. Max didn't mind and has slept in his a few times, all by himself without even a bed, while Maddie has asked for him to sleep in her room.

Sam has been crawling in the attic crawlspace and the one below the house to both give Jess storage and run cable. He has been moving appliances and cutting wood. This was from opening ikea hangars.
And don't worry Taisie, he did go to the doctor. He did not get stitches. It is healing well.
