After searching Craigslist, we ended up finding a wonderful table with extra leaves and six chairs. I love it! With the leaves in, we can fit eight chairs around it quite comfortably. Having company over was always a bit tricky with our tiny little table, but now we're all set.
The girls were excited to try out the new table too! They love it and keep talking about how much more space we have.
We've been using the table for a few weeks now, and its great! I can even put dishes of food on the table while we eat instead of having to leave everything on the kitchen counter. Lucy will be able to do her schoolwork at one end and I will still have room to serve lunch or work on some other project.
Even without the leaves in, we have so much more room. I love our big table! When we got the table I told my husband that I might cry. It's just a table, but it symbolizes our big family and being prepared to offer hospitality to others, both of which are important to us. :) Want to come over for dinner?
