Larkspur’s outdoor kitchen was created, and I will hopefully make it out to some thrift shops for a few more kitchen items soon. She is pleased with what I have created for her thus far. I’m amazed by the play value of a few old ammo boxes and some little pots and pans.
Jonny mastered crown molding over the weekend, and made so much progress on our pantry. Shelves will be going in over the next few days, and then hooks for coats and baskets for shoes. There is an exterior door on one side of the pantry, and a door to the kitchen on the other side so it is going to serve as a mudroom in addition to a pantry.
Jonny and I also created a great lesson plan spreadsheet for homeschooling, and I am excited to put it to use tomorrow. My previous system was okay, but not nearly as appealing visually. Tonight I am going to set up a new notebook for Seth and re-organize all his papers to surprise him. I think he will like the new planner that will allow him to easily see what he needs to accomplish each day and even has a little box to check off when he finishes a task. If anyone is interested, I would be happy to share it. It’s an excel spreadsheet, and would be very easy to customize.
I also organized the pens and pencils. Exciting stuff.
Now it’s time to straighten up and get ready for tomorrow. We are planning an afternoon fossil hunt, so I need to be prepared to get all of our “have to’s” done in the morning.
