Presenting... the New Room

Here it is... all painted and put back together. We took the closet door off, it came out into the room and took up space. We put a curtain up for privacy, she has a small walk-in closet, so the curtain is handy. I got a wooden barstool and painted it brown for the table next to her bed.

The New... Bedding and Paint

The new bedding that inspired the new room...

The new wall colors are blue (on three walls)

and green (on one wall)

Out with the Old

Amelia decided it was time for new bedding and a new room. This is the old, purple, polka dots, and fun. The purple was on the walls for 5 years, and the dots were added when we got the bedding 3 years ago. Say goodbye to the purple.

Another Week Gone

The summer goes to fast! I had a wonderful time at the Dr. Jean Camp Kindergarten workshop last week. I got several ideas for my class next year. That is always a good thing. 

This week has been busy prepping Amelia's to paint this weekend. She got new bedding (I'll do another post about that) and the purple walls don't match the brown, blue, pink, orange, and yellow bedding! lol 

I am working on some school projects as well. YAY ME!! I usually have good intentions for the summer, and then don't do anything. But a few hours a week won't kill me. (and people think teachers don't work over the summer... ha) 

I need to plan our itinerary for our trip to Chicago. I am just overwhelmed by the restaurant choices, I don't know where to begin. But I have a few places I want to eat at, so I will get started on that soon. 

That is all.

Dad's Schedule

I am going to Atlanta for 4 days. I am going to Dr. Jean's summer workshop. I am excited and hoping to get lots of ideas and inspiration. 

Of course Amelia has two camps and an orthodontist's appointment this week. I wrote up a schedule for Michael. lol When and here to take her each day. And don't forget getting me to the airport. 

I did it because he gets so busy at work, the times need to be on his mind so he will stop and shuttle her around.

Summer's Here

Finally, summer is here. I am very ready for this break. It has been a long year, personally and professionally. I am ready for the break and a chance to recharge my enthusiasm. I did get a little teary eyed as we waved goodbye to the busses. 

I have 9 weeks off.  I am going to a conference next week that I am excited about. I have some plans for the summer, but there are some unknowns about next year. Hopefully, I will have some answers by the end of tomorrow. Otherwise, there is no need to do planning this summer.

Summer Plans
1. Read (I want to read at least 10 books this summer)
2. Scrap two days a week
3. Get out the camera and try to learn some more
4. Go to Disney World for 4 days
5. Go to Chicago for 8 days
6. Visit my family in Michigan 
7. Relax!!!
