Inspirational stories come from the writers heart and soul. God put His "heart" in you. He didn't just create you. He invested Himself in you. You are the inspirational story that emerged from the heart and soul of the Father. Who you are is a person worth knowing well.

The Story of painting the River Runners Classroom! :)

Let the painting begin and end! This month Emm, Joshua, and I redid our 4, 5, and 6 year old classroom called River Runners! We had a blast however it took forever. I think I calculated how long I worked on the room and it was at least 48 hours! Man it was all worth it! I think it looks amazing! :) Thank you Emm, and Josh for helping me do it! :) I has so much fun! :) Be for warned there are a lot of pictures!

The room before we got started! :)
Before Pictures!
Still before pictures! :)

Now it is time to start the strips! :) And Emma thought it would be good to use her feet to help with the straight lines! :)
I am not so good at straight lines even with a ruler so Emma got to have this job! :)
Then a wonderful surprised happened and three helpers came! :) So the three of us painted while.....
These two taped! :)
We did so good and we went along really fast they where such good helpers! :)
Ruthie was here! :)
Josh surprised us and this is what happened! :)
Emm joining in on the painting fun! :)
But don't get her mad or scared cause you never know what might happen! :)
The finished paint with the tape still on!
Now the tape is off! :)
And finally the wall is complete with a new bass board and all! :)
Josh got to do the little green part on top of the cabinets! :)
And our colorful ball! ;)

The End! Thank you Jesus! :)
