I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend!  We had grand plans to finish the bathroom but I’ve been battling a fever for the past 3 days that just knocked me down.  I couldn’t quite give my 50%, but Mike did a great job.  Hopefully I’ll be back in action soon so we can wrap […]

Well this is it.  My last few days of freedom before it’s back to the ole grind.  As much as I’ll miss my carefree summer schedule, I’m actually excited to get the school year started.  I’m teaching an ENRICH classroom, which is a group of 23 high-achieving first graders.  I have all sorts of fun […]

I’m not a “decorate the house for every little holiday” type person, but I was itching to do a little crafting recently and decided to make a few things to sit out on our dining room buffet for Valentine’s Day.  It’s been bare since Christmas so this was the perfect excuse to liven it up […]
