Happenings At Home

So if you follow me over on Instagram or Facebook then you saw that we had a college graduate! woo hoo! Last night my oldest Step-son graduated from my alma mater, Colorado State University. We are so proud of him and can’t wait to see what he does next. He has grad school on the horizon and is waiting to hear back from the Colorado Rockies on a position he interviewed for!

Our freshman in college made it back as well. He had a great first year at The University of Arizona and we are proud of him too. And we are all so happy to have him back for the summer.

Grace, our 13 year old, has been playing soccer and running track. She is busy and keeps us busy! Also, she just qualified for the middle school district track meet. She is fast and so much fun to watch. I’ll keep you posted!

And finally our youngest Crosby is ready for summer. She has been working hard and practicing for her up coming dance recital. She is a bundle of sassy energy and I love to watch her practice her routine. It’s a Wizard of Oz theme!

My News

Also, If you missed my announcement I am leaving teaching after 20 years. I have a peace about it and the Lord has made it clear that this is a good thing and Mike has been such an incredible support. So that also means I have been busy cleaning out my classroom. And oh boy that has been a task! I have 6 days left with my kiddos and teammates and I plan to enjoy every minute. Blogging full time has been a dream of mine and now to see it just on the horizon is so exciting!!!!

The Latest From The Blog

This week I surprisingly had time to pump out one blog! It’s all about creating a DIY hat wall with hooks.. It’s fun and functional all wrapped into one.

I also did a ton of planting last weekend and hope to get the progress up for you soon. Being in this house for our first Spring has been nothing short of magical. And the lilacs are in full bloom!
