Yippee...both kids are now in school!

I am so excited to say that both of my kids are now in school!



My daughter is in the second grade.



My son is in kindergarten.



I have long been waiting for the day when I could have the day ALL to myself! Now the question is, what do I do with myself? Well let's see here...there is always endless projects, not to mention all of the daily chores that need done. I plan to redo both of the kids rooms as well as mine, new paint, bedding, curtains, art and closet organizers. Oh goodness...I don't know where to start! After I get all of the rooms upstairs done, it will be time to tackle the basement. That will be a BIG project, as we have had LOTS of rain lately and on Friday it flooded the guest room! It was really a surreal moment when you walk downstairs and find what looks like a bath tub faucet turned on pouring from the window into the room. It took two shop vacs and the carpet shampooer to get the water under control. We ended up just going ahead and ripping out the carpet in the guest room that night, but we still need to scrap the pad up. I had planned to rip up all of the carpet in the basement eventually and just paint the floors and throw down some rugs, it will just have to happen a little sooner than I had planned. Well...I'd better go get to work now. Oh yeah...I do still have one helper at home, Indy.

So cute! It seems so darn early for school to start. My kids go back in one week.

it does seem that they start school earlier and earlier each year. most of the schools in our area started yesterday and some one even started on Aug. 13th!

Enjoy all these crazy days! My youngest is about to leave for college and I am not sure I am ready for all the peace and quiet.

How lucky for you that you have such a handsome helper still at home during the day!! I love your kids bright shiny faces--what a couple of cuties! Enjoy your time to yourself and good luck with all the projects.

First I have to say that I didn't even know you had kids...you look so young :) I guess after watching the video of your studio(which I LOVED)I figured someone with kids would never be so lucky to have such a sweet getaway space like that!!
I will be kid free too in about a week~ first time in 5 years! That was my thought too, "What will I do with myself?" I told my kids I'll probably spend the first week dancing around the house til my feet hurt...then the 2nd week I'll get down to business :)
