Organization sure feels better!

We were on our way out yesterday and saw a neighbor that was moving and he let us have this hutch.  He had used it in the bedroom for their tv and movie player.  Oh yes!!  Free score!!

There is still one more open space!!  Yippee.  I was so glad to get rid of the plastic bins and plastic drawer thing.  Very useful, but very ugly. 

What is new in your school room?

Fall room cleaning in progress

We are in the middle of Fall cleaning.  So regular "school" work is on hold.  But I should think this is a lesson in keeping things organized and put away and then you won't have a big mess.  But at eight, stuff can wait because there is always something else more important. 

So we are trying to get stuff done.  I like a fresh organized room before all the holidays. 

What are your favorite ways to keep things organized?  Do you hang all shirts?  Label bins for certain toys?  Go in and throw everything away?   LOL

Have a blessed day.

My baby is eight today!!

Happy Birthday, Brianna.   Love Dad and Mom.

Thinking back on the day eight years ago, the thing that stands out most to me is that sweet little bundle they handed me in the surgery.  Bri had a headful of dark, curly hair.  She looked like a little burito since she was all wrapped up.  Today, she is so grown up that I am amazed.  I am so very blessing.

Happy Birthday, sweetie.

The Artist

Here are some great projects drawn by my budding artist.  Can you guess that she is a comic fan??

Love it!!

I sure go thru the copy paper.  I buy them at Walmart where they are like 3 or 4 dollars.  I also give her all the stuff from printing that isn't useful to me, but has a empty side just ready for works of art.

Storage is another problem.  I have tons of beautiful works.  But I have stacks of them.  I try to put some of the really good ones in our school year box.  But I am getting over run.  What do you do with your growing stack of beautiful art??

Have a wonderful day.

American Heritage Girls

Today is AHG.  The girls are finishing a badge called All God's Children.  It helps them know how to deal with people very unlike themselves.  Like people in wheelchairs or with disabilities.  The leader was very good about having people with disabilities come in and speak to the group.  For some of the girls had never deal with this before.  They also worked on Sign Language and Braille.  It gave them a fresh look at what it means to be one of God's Children.

Make your own pizza day

Decided to buy pizza shells yesterday at Walmart.  So today, we made your own pizza for lunch.  We went to Kroger's to buy fresh ingredients.  Bri put on two kinds of cheese, pepperoni, and mushrooms.  I put on peppers, onions, mushrooms, and two kinds of cheese.  Cheap and fun. 

I think this will be a more frequent lunch item.  I am sure it would be even better with things from the garden.

What did you do fun today?
