Show and Tell

Holy Cow folks! Where is the month of July going? I know I’m not the only one rushing around trying to accomplish all those tasks I procrastinated all school year long. I am taking a little time though to  link up with Forever in 5th Grade to show & tell you about a few things that have been going on around here.

I’m Raising Ballers

We’ve been busy building and creating around the house. My husband and his buddies formed and poured concrete for our three kids’ basketball court. Now all we have to do is buy an amazing goal and paint the lines and we are set for outdoor games.

Vinyl Obsession

In the house I have been busy creating vinyl items with my Silhouette machine.  I made this jug for my son for  Little League games and I made these sunglasses for my students’ end of the year gifts. Next item I’m creating is some cute teacher tees for myslelf.

Crafting Carrie

Who loves to craft? I do, I do!  I mean when I have time to do it. My husband built me this fabulous craft table from 2 bookshelf  and I must say he knocked it out of the park. I found my inspiration from a blog post from The Story of Five that you can read all about here.

Classroom Decor

At the end of the school year I told myself I would disconnect from all things school related and really focus on relaxing. My goal was to only turn my brain on to school after our family vacation the first week of July. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed a disconnected June and my family vacation!

Now, I am in full blown school-mode since my return from vacation. I even completed my classroom decor theme for this year. I can’t wait for an “Out of this World” school year!

Work, work, work, work, work! That stinking song keeps playing over and over in my head as I work on preparing my room for the upcoming year. My new theme is confetti and candy and I love it! I have also been reorganizing my library, little by little, when my children are at open gym. It is not done yet, but I’ve put a large dent in it.

13th Birthday Celebration

My baby girl turned 13 (*gasp*) this month. We celebrated by going to The Melting Pot in St. Louis for some fondue fun. She had a blast and said she can’t wait to go again. Of course, her favorite was the chocolate fondue. It was amazing! We finished off the birthday weekend with a family party with comfort food and a Dairy Queen ice cream cake.

Zoo Trip

The kids and I took a trip to the St. Louis Zoo this month. Many of the animals were out and about. The monkeys put on an entertaining little display in the primate house that we enjoyed too.  We had a blast! Very rarely do we all get to be together anymore with sports schedules. It was some much need and cherished family time. I’m already planning our next day adventure.

Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go has hit our house like a storm. Since we live in a rural area my kids can’t catch these little creatures unless I drive to a neighboring town. (*sigh*) On the bright side, at least the kids don’t complain about running errands in town with me now.
