Home Again, Home Again...For Now

We just got back from a week in the Outer Banks. We were very lucky: the weather was beautiful the entire time (except Friday, but we were prepping to leave, anyway), and we ate some delicious, local seafood while we were there! We spent most of our days at the beach, and the kids discovered the simple joys of jumping waves and building sandcastles.

Here are the kiddos on the beach, as soon as we arrived on the Banks.

Deedle was content to dig in the sand for mole crabs all day.

KShaf bought the kiddos some shovels, and Princess A had a blast, digging deep holes and sitting in them once they had filled with water.

Now, we're gearing up to head to Pennsylvania to visit KShaf's family. We usually time our summer trip to PA to coincide with the Fourth of July, and the kids always have a blast, riding Grandma's (many!!) ponies and watching Uncle Dave set off fireworks.

I've tried not to think about work too much, but it's tough! I have a million projects that I'd like to tackle, including these:

I desperately want to make cute, polka dot (of course!) curtains for my classroom windows. I, however, plan to use a glue gun, not a needle and thread (much to my crafty mother's chagrin).

I also can't wait to make four of these adorable crate seats/storage areas for my classroom!

OMG, I have to make one of these!

I also have plans to update/improve some Science units to post on TPT. We'll see if I actually get around to that or not!

In the meantime, I am toying with the idea of having my blog design created by a professional. I've been really impressed with Christi's work over at Design by Christi. I just haven't decided if I'm ready to commit to spending money on my blog. Ideas? Suggestions? Input? I'll take all the advice I can get!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday! I'm off to pack (again!)!
