Hello??? Anyone still there?
I'm back! Did you miss me? Don't get too comfortable, because I might be sporadic for the next few weeks. With school starting up for myself and all the 3 kiddos, life is busy!
I am teaching grade one this year! Eek! I am excited and anxious at the same time. This will be my second year teaching, first year teaching grade one. I am scrambling trying to get organized and figure out what I need to teach. Grade one is a whole different ballgame than grade two my friends. Wish me luck. I did take pictures of me classroom, maybe when it is done I can show the photos to you. Not exciting and let's just say there is an overuse of comic sans fonts and primary colours in my room. So not how I would decorate my home or my blog!
I feel bad that I didn't post more often this summer. Frankly, I just didn't feel like it. It was nice not to have to do write anything. Really, no projects were accomplished around me casa, except f you follow me on Instagram, you would of caught snippets of some Ikea hacking and gold spray paint! Our master bedroom got a bit of zhushing action. Still not finished yet, need to sew some pillows with delicious fabric.
Here are some iPhone pictures....hoping to take some better ones later when all is complete and the whole back-to-school thing out of the way.
We are still slowly house hunting. Nothing has jumped out at me. Our landlords aren't rushing to sell the house, we aren't rushing to buy one. The hubs and I aren't sure what to do. In three years, our baby graduates high school. Do we need a 5 bedroom home still? I know they come back, everyone seems to be telling me that. But we don't want to be helicopter parents, and would like the kiddos to be self sufficient, therefore, maybe buying a home that isn't tooooo comfortable for 5, but a bit more "cozy" so as to make it more desirable to live elsewhere? Just thinking out loud folks... cause my babies are my babies, and we want to help them when we can.
On the weekend we said good-bye to the eldest baby as she embarks on her second year of university. She had a rough summer, fighting mono for 4 weeks! Her finances took a hit. But she is such a strong person, she was determined to go back this fall. She is no longer in residence and found a fully stocked suite for 4 girls. She knows one of them. I am praying the move-in goes well, as does the whole 4 roommates business! And she has to cook for herself! Cooking was never her forte. I suspect emails and texts will be coming through, asking for help :)
Phew! Just a quick run down of where I am at. Hope you all have an amazing summer! And I am excited for fall, my FAVOURITE season! Fingers crossed, I can get some more blogging in!
