what’s new??

i thought i would share a few new things around the house!!

a few new ideas for our chalkboard door that i copied from a creative blogger….i would love to give credit where credit is due…but i can’t seem to track down the post i stole this from!!

On a daily basis we use this door to write down our favorite sayings and our weekly menu….

Now i have added little notes to the kiddos, counting down the days till school ends, and my favorite….I start a story and they finish it!!! i dictate for Cooper…who could write a novel with all of his wonderful ideas!!!

new toy for hubby….he just couldn’t wait till Father’s Day! In our house i am in charge of the pictures and he is in charge of videoing the family, but our old video camera was so ancient and it was such a pain to carry it around….this one is not only small but its waterproof…very cool.

New things around our house: baby boy tried solids this week, not too sure he likes it yet. Heater broken just as winter kicks in and I've realised I like scones with jam & cream a little too much :) Luving the chalkboard and the summer to do list!

Lots of fun stuff going on around your house! The door and lanterns are too cute :D Not much is going on around here. We just finished distributing my oldest daughter's sorority rush packets for recommendations for August. It was quite the chore! Youngest daughter worked at a horse camp for younger kids this week for the first time. She thinks she is so big!
