My parent's came up today to see Kathleen on her first day of Kindergarten. She is so excited!! Getting to bed was a little tough for her this evening. It will take time adjusting to a new schedule and bless her heart she's not a morning person! Pray for me? :-) LOL
So one area of our kitchen that was being well used was our baker's rack. It became the catch all for everything throughout the day. I needed calm and I wanted to redo my Mom station in the kitchen anyway. So here is the before of our baker's rack (YIKES!)
So I simplified it by using an antique drop leaf table we have and keeping it pared down to what we needed in there. The message board will be so convenient now to reach and update as needed.
Yes the little sign says Good Morning Let The Stress Begin!!! ;-)
This is the calendar I made for Kathleen's school info. and activities for the year. I'm waiting to get Hayley's info. so I can make hers as well.
Had to share this coupon Hayley made for me....think she'll actually do it each day? LOL!
I also love these pictures Kathleen did of my desk area and Hayley's desk area.
LOL I just noticed I got a shot of my toes with the orange nail polish! LOL :-)
Hayley found me these lovely dandelions and put them in a vase for me. I love these moments in life....
Seeing the beauty in all things!
This is a picture I found at a yard sale and I hung it where the bulletin board use to be in the kitchen.
I loved it right away as it reminded me of Hayley and I. I also love the Victorian Era as most of you know :-)
$5.00 later...it's mine :-)
Miss Kathleen was quite a happy camper today when she got this package in the mail from her Godmother Teresa (AKA my best friend) Teresa and I have been friend's since we were 3 years old!
"Mom! Do I have to stop tearing into it to smile for a picture???!!"
Supplies for Kindergarten!!!
Ahhh yes scissors....she loves scissors! Just the other day she cut up a ton of paper and told me it was salad. ;-)
Most adorable card ever!!
Thank you so much "Aunt" Teresa!!!! We know you're reading and we love and miss you! ;-)
So I started some more of my balsamic chicken with mushroom meal tonight....a sneak peek....
Must be pretty good because Hayley was dancing around the kitchen all excited!! I believe I've already posted this recipe before....??
Then it was off to
eat, I mean wash the fresh strawberries for their snack bags tomorrow!
Packed the bags......
Of course with a note to the girls in each! Ready to go! I gave Kathleen this container that was super easy to open on her own and had her count the 4 sides while she was doing it. She was so excited doing it on her own. Now let's see if the reusables come home tomorrow! LOL
Off to bake banana and chocolate chip muffins for the girls tomorrow. I'll be updating how their first day went and hopefully I won't shed too many tears......
