It's been more than a week since the last major progress on the remodel.
Scott finished the floors, installed most of the quarter-round molding, and I repainted the baseboards. The electrician installed the new kitchen fixtures. Our friend Brad and his kiddos came over and helped Scott move the furniture back into the house. I still haven't unpacked all the boxes.
Last week I was busy with homeschool planning and prep -- rushing to get ready before spending a lovely, long weekend away at the coast with my mom and sisters for my mom's birthday.
(Bet you can't even tell who turned 60! More weekend pics to come...)
We had a gorgeous weekend at the beach, and I only broke out my planner once. *wink*
My goal before we left was to be able to eat breakfast at home again, so we could jump into our new books in the morning with no distractions.
We'd managed to avoid disposables and the microwave (mostly) this summer by eating at my parents' house, but I finally gave in for the sake of my sanity during this transition.
On Monday, our local public schools welcomed kids back to classrooms, while we spent the morning at a favorite park catching frogs in the man-made creek with some homeschooling friends to celebrate not going back to school. We saved that for Tuesday.
(Not my kiddo, but he sure was excited about the frogs!)
On Tuesday, we broke out the binders, the fingerpaint, and the new books...
Imagine my joy when I heard at the end of the day... "I can't wait to do homeschool again tomorrow, Mom!"
Have you started your new schoolyear yet? How's it going?
