Update, Update, Update
We are going to have an update
catch-up post. Life has gotten a
bit busy and I am a bit behind. :)
Up first--a DIY project. I bought
this black case at a garage sale
earlier this summer.
I thought it was bland so I
blinged it up with pink poka
dots! Love it!
The person who had it first
used it as a laptop case. But
I am taking it to school for
field trips. We will use it in
a variety of ways. A lunch
carrier, books and small toys
Country Dreaming turned 5 during
our vacation-staycation. Thanks to
those of you who come by often and
comment, those who come by and
visit quietly and those who have
been a faithful reader for the past
5 years!!!! I appreciate you and
Mr. Ken had a BIG birthday earlier
We had a backyard FULL of people
helping Ken celebrate.
He got to wear this button at his
party and THEN on the day of
his birthday a week later. It
lights up! What fun!!
More birthday fun--we enjoyed
luch here. An authentic German
restaurant in the Freight District
of Kansas City.
Ken and I had Goulash with
Spatzel, he also had Red Cabbage
on the side. Ken said that his 50th
birthday--ALL of it was AWESOME!!!
Last but not least---School has
started! My first day was August
11 with inservice and training in
the morning and then time to work
in the room in the afternoon. Our
1st and 2nd graders began on the 12th
with a 1/2 day and another on the 13th.
Kindergarteners began on the 14th with
a full day for ALL of us.
Talk about hitting the ground running!!
The kids have adapted well to being back,
the adults---well, we are working on it.
That's it. We had an awesome summer
and now we are back to getting a routine
in place. Summer will be enjoyed in an
abbreviated way now.
~Keep on Dreaming~
