Then it was back to work. David has been trying to finish of some smaller repairs around the house, including repairing and painting the last bits of the roof. Over the last week we’ve got quite a bit accomplished.

On Tuesday, David took the girls up on the roof with him to help him pack up up his roof-repairing tools. (It's a flat roof — quite safe!)

Calista helped David clean up. (The washing machine seemed the safest place for her so she wouldn't wander around into fresh paint.)

While we’re working around the house, the girls play as usual — making a bit more mess because they’re unsupervised, but they don’t get into mischief!

Aisha, 4yo, + Brioni, 2yo, May 2009
Aisha and Brioni decided they were going to go on a boat ride. They both enjoy dressing up — especially in swimsuits.

David discovered all three girls playing in the dog house today!
