Summer So Far

How can my summer be half over?  I haven't even blogged.  It has been a good, relaxing, productive, fun summer so far....

Let's see this is what we have been up to....

Last home fellowship (there was one after this one....but we were not there!)

I've been sorting books for my classroom library...and putting stickers in them to keep them organized by type and so that the kids will be able to put them back where they belong.  Great idea from Kindercraze blog.

We got a new rug for the den that is super soft! 


We got new furniture for the den that is so nice! 

I got my favorite old chair recovered.  I love it and it is MAMA'S CHAIR! 

We've gone to sewing circles.....Lydia made the cute button hair bow with her friends at sewing circle!  Thank you Mrs. Upshaw!!!

We've had our end of year Co-op picnic.  Bittersweet!

We've played in the ball....plays.....cheer leading shows.....gone for walks in the neighborhood.
