Summertime and the livin is easy

At least for a few more weeks anyway.
And to be completely honest,
it hasn't really been that easy.

I mean, the Kansas heat broke an all-time record by reaching 111°.
Holy sweaty body parts.

And our entire house has been a minefield
of drywall, paint cans, drop cloths, and tools.

We've also done a pretty little number on our bank account.
12 weddings with only 2 of those in-town.
Need I say more?

But, I also got a job.
And got to celebrate marriages, births, and new homes.
And finally completed some big home projects.
And had our very first house guests.
Who left this morning. :(
And I leave for FLORIDA tomorrow.
For a bachelorette party for my bestie.

Then, it's time to get ready.
For one of the most important roles of my life.
As a fourth grade teacher.

So thankful.
So excited.
So nervous.

And I've got a bad case of the back-to-school bug.
Also spent a ridiculous amount of time in the
Kansas heat garage-saling.
I'm insane.

But I've gotten a good start on my classroom.
And I'm super excited about my reading rug & chair and
my treasure chest that will be put to work immediately.
Woop. Woop.

Hope you all are having a lovely Tuesday.

Oh my gosh, 12 weddings! And I'm tired after 3! You're going to be a great teacher- hope you post classroom pictures when you're all set up!

That is crazy hot! I don't think I could handle it unless I was laying by a pool :)

Your classroom is going to look mighty fantastic!
