Doug's mom arrived on Monday, and then we went out to Port Orchard four days in a row (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday--whew!). Kate had a good time playing with Grandma Mary while I worked on the Cupboard Under the Stairs. Most of that time was spent working on this bridge. I was hoping I could just concentrate on painting for a few days and get a lot done, but it's still slow going. There's a lot of exacting work in that bridge, with all the straight lines and the arches that all have to be about the same size.
Getting back to Hogwarts now seems timely, with the fourth movie opening this week. I mentioned to Doug that if we go see it he could wear his Ravenclaw robe. That would be fun. We did go see Serenity in the theater, and left Kate with a babysitter for the first time ever. She did great, so I'm sure we could do it again, but we haven't decided yet.
