Life has been busy around here lately.
We are hosting something pretty amazing this weekend and I can't wait to tell you all about it. Andrew and I have been in full planning mode. I'm pretty sure we've hosted family and friends more in the past 10 months since we bought our house than we did in the nine years of our marriage before buying this house. It's my very favorite thing about our house - lots of room for family and friends. We truly enjoying hosting which isn't something we had a chance to know about ourselves until recently. We spend hours and hours talking and planning. We plan differently, but I think we make a pretty good team.
We leave for vacation soon. I have started mentally making a list of everything that needs to be packed. I'm a list maker. I will write down every single thing that is going in my suitcase. I've done that since I started packing my own bag. We also have to make arrangements for the LBs. It may be silly but I will miss my sweet furbabies while we are gone.
I'm also getting my classroom back together and ready to roll. Only three more weeks of summer. I have mixed emotions as always. I LOVE my summers, but I also LOVE the first day of school. I have some high expectations for those sixth graders of mine and cannot wait to get started. Plus I'm kind of loving my new theme: chalkboard and neon. No more owls. Well a few of my favorites get to stay. The others are packed and put away for another time.
Even with all the business, there is always time for some relaxation on the lake.
