We had plans to celebrate the 4th of July with our church cookout but it got rained out! We ended up going to dinner with family and having a super lazy Saturday! We cooked out with Kyle’s family Saturday night and watched a few fireworks.
Monday was mine and Kyle’s 2 year anniversary. We managed to have a quick dinner date, just the two of us and I can’t remember the last time we did that! I told Kyle that this Fall when Landon goes home were starting a weekly date night and I’ve already been lining up babysitters! It was so refreshing to enjoy a meal without the fear of Avery getting fussy.
Kyle surprised me with a gift since earlier in the week we had decided that I’d pick out something I wanted and just buy it and vice versa. Monday afternoon he showed up to the house early and rang the doorbell. I opened the door to a bouquet of roses and a bag of goodies from Anthropologie! It was perfect!
3. Classroom Cleanout
I have been working all week on cleaning out my classroom. Other than my library I didn’t plan to keep anything. If I do return to teaching at some point it won’t be for several years and by then my things will be outdated anyways! I’ve had a few people come and take lots of items I had accumulated the last few years and I’m thankful most of my things are gone now!
This was the mess I started with:
I ‘try’ to be organized… As a teacher my organization was supreme. It had to be… But my personal things have always lacked organization. So I decided I wanted to create a ‘command center’ for our mail/bills, etc. I hate that we don’t have an office in our house or any great place to organize all the mail, coupons, bills, keys, and calendars we have. I found a system at Pottery Barn and ordered a few pieces on Tuesday. They arrived Thursday and I can’t wait to start piecing it together! I’ll post before/after pics when I get it up.
The boys have been in Atlanta this week so Avery and I have been enjoying some girl time. I have been dragging her all over town and to the school all week so on Thursday we just chilled! I didn’t get out of my pjs until 4:00! It was glorious! We napped and played all day. I love days like that!! We finished off the day by having dinner together and playing in the bathtub! I love days with my sweet girl!!
