this summer the house has been ignored
the sewing machine has collected dust
most days…I'm working on laundry and dishes
my neighbors did have a tag sale a couple weeks ago
looky looky what i found!
my only problem is that its too pretty for the porch…real wicker and non outdoor fabric plus the weather in the North is not a good combination.
i am in love with the fabric
my attempt at organizing all drawing supplies
inspired by a picture in a pottery barn book, i found this old coke bottle box….
it has perfect little compartments for all of their stuff.
even their crayon rolls have a place.
on another note…….is anyone else freaking out about school starting.?! I have totally mixed feelings this year. Yes, its been a crazy summer…trying to entertain 2 little ones… day after day is exhausting…but, it has been a really fun summer!
yesterday we stopped by Cooper’s preschool..and they mentioned he is starting Monday…..what? this coming Monday? I am not ready for my baby to start school…..even preschool. I secretly hope he flips out so i can take him back home.
I also spent yesterday on the phone with Caroline’s school trying to figure out this bus thing….but i have this knot in my stomach…i am not ready to put her on the bus and see her drive away from me.
I have spent the last 5 years taking care of these amazing children….5 years as a stay at home mom…which i have not always embraced as i should…..most days frustrated and stressed…..but every day reminding myself that i am blessed to be able to stay at home…and knowing that i would not have it any other way…..
so….this being our last day of summer…we will head to the lake. As i type, I hear my kids giggling as they watch cartoons, still in their pjs…one last lazy summer morning.
