We were back at it yesterday: more sorting, trashing, and packing at my parents' house. I took a short break, though, to get some photos. Here are some pictures of one of my favorite parts of my childhood home (my own kids love it, too). This staircase is wide, with relatively low risers, that make walking up the stairs actually pleasurable. These features also make sliding down on your belly a good time, and I'm surprised that Luke, Bridget, Henry, Sam, and Jack have not yet worn a path in the carpet. Mom and Dad probably stripped and re-varnished all that lovely, oak woodwork, since they did it with the rest of the house's trim.
