The new house got a lot warmer last week! FoamTech came and filled in our walls with marshmallow cream...or at least that's what Louisa was hoping as she slowly moved her hand toward it. Can I touch it? she asked. She was surprised at how hard it felt and asked what it was like when they sprayed it. I don't know for sure, but I told her it was probably like shaving cream that she gets to play with at school. Nate was really happy with how fast they worked - it took the crew 5 days to insulate the entire house and they filled every hole, every exterior stud space (is that a technical term?) and the entire underside of the roof. Toasty warm!
Cora took the opportunity to wear the kid work gloves and hold the tool bag since Lou was not around. It was incredibly difficult (and very entertaining) to get her fingers in the glove fingers.
On Tuesday Peter napped early and I delayed Cora's nap so the three of us could go to the children's museum while Louisa was at school. Peter loves exploring and it was nice to let Cora decide which areas she wanted to play in, instead of having her simply follow Lou-the-Leader around.
Seems like yesterday when this same "castle" was taller than Cora. Soon she'll be 3!
