So I was thrilled last night when he started smiling again. Way back when we first told the kids about the move last summer, we promised Connor that we would get a new bed for his room. Maybe a bunk bed, maybe a loft bed, but definitely a new bed. He grabbed on to this promise, and his excitement about moving grew from there. Since we've been here, we've looked at beds, but hadn't settled on the right one that would meet his needs, and our price range. We decided a loft bed would be the right fit, but they are not easy to find. Yesterday I found one. ON SALE!!! So late yesterday afternoon we all trekked out to the store to look at it, and we all agreed it was the perfect one. Then Chris decided he would save the delivery and set up fees and bring it home and put it together himself. It made for a bit of a late school night, but it was so worth it. As you can see from the look on his face, Connor LOVES his new bed! And I love THAT SMILE!!!
