Well as you know for those who live with educators our internal annual clock doesn't run January to December like regular folks. Our yearly calendar runs August to June. :) So in light of that my new year is about to begin again!! Wow, can it really be time already?
We get the kids back on Sunday night (yes the very evening before school begins for them both) but that's a subject for another day. They both start hitting the ground running on Monday. Wow, Aaron is a fourth grader this year. Next year he'll be in middle school with me. I can't even imagine having a middle schooler! Natalie has one more year at preschool and then when Aaron goes to middle school she'll start kindergarten. Wow!! Where did time go?
Around the house we are trying to get everything settled. Before the wedding we moved the majority of my earthly belongings to Brian's but just dumped it and didn't put anything away really. However in an effort to make his house our home we have redone tons of stuff. We redid Natalie's room, her room still looked like her nursery at age four. Light pink walls, Beatrix Potter chair rail border, tiny twin bed, you get the idea. We painted it a light off white clean color and turned it into a "big girl" room. She has a full size bed now, fun polka dot bedding, and princess decor. Not Disney Princess, but just fun sweet girly princess. It's way cute. Aaron's room got an overhall at Christmas turning his Siderman room into a Dallas Cowboys room. Very young man! We also painted our bathroom and bedroom coordinating colors. We are using chocolate browns and blues in both rooms and we painted the bathroom the lightest blue color and did the ceiling in the same cream of Nat's room. It was a blood red color, yes that's right blood red in the smallest master bath on the planet. The bedroom was this deep chocolate brown color on three walls and an accent wall of navy. We painted the room the same cream color as Nat's as well with a different accent wall of the light blue of the bathroom. It all looks amazing. I will post pics of our beautiful home as soon as I get it all put back together. Trust me. You don't want to see it right now. :)
We are having great fun on this new adventure in our lives and are trying to get two three bedroom homes to fit in the space of one. :) We'll get it done and as soon as we do I want you all to come over for a fun housewarming party. Sound great??
Enjoy your last few days of summer. I'm off to put more things away!
