It took several months, but we finally got our first functional/creative joint project knocked out. The boys were in the habit of dumping their backpacks outside the coat closet in the front hall, which is also where we store our shoes. So, we had a perpetual “Door Vomits Coats, Shoes, and Backpacks” modern art installation going on in our front hallway. We came up with the design for the personalized (the ABC kids — Alana, Benton, and Carson) backpack/coat rack below — woodworking by Tim, painting by Julie, installation by Tim and Benton.
Carson commented this afternoon that he hates his name because he comes last. Poor kid. Middle child. Last alphabetically.
