We spent last weekend at my family's lake house with friends. We spent most of the time outside in the sun and on the boat. We had a great time until... Caddy got SKUNKED! That's right, my seven year old, already sore from swimming 13 hours a day lab found his way over to the smelliest animal on the planet and proceeded to get sprayed. The rest of our Saturday night entailed trying several home remedies, using almost all the shampoo in the house, airing out the inside and washing everything in sight! It makes for a funny memory, but it wasn't so funny for this dog mom when I was in the shower with my stinky boy for almost an hour! Needless to say, Caddy slept for the remainder of the weekend and was a little embarrassed about his new scent (that he's still faintly carrying around today).
A few of my many packages came from Amazon for my new school year purchases! Among these packages came this book. I'm excited to add it to my other beginning of the year books!
Did you see my post earlier this week about creating this attendance/lunch choice chart out of a cookie sheet? I finally got a chance to hang it up in my room this week and it looks great!
Yesterday was a very rainy day in Cincinnati. So what better use of my time than to craft for my classroom all day? I got a few things done, but I'm by far the MOST excited about my first day of school frame! Stay tuned for a blog post coming soon about it!
You can't tell (because I'm always more interested in taking pictures of animals than an actual project - the dog next to Caddy is our sweet neighbor dog Indy), but the blue board to the left is going to be a painting of the globe! My principal asked my dad, who happens to be an artist, to help our school out with the global theme we're starting this year. As you can see I've been lots of help! Today, we're finishing it up, driving it over to the school and doing some more painting!
