Mind is elsewhere

Sorry for the lack of posts and use of capital letters, but my mind is on a lot of other things right now: school, school, school, brynn's birthday, our little staycation coming up, and school.

Brynn's bday theme will be a luau/hawaiian/hula girl theme. she is really excited about it and so is her momma. i need to figure out where to find some extra folding chairs to accommodate her friends so everyone can sit at the table together. i am still figuring that one out. maybe my old school will let me borrow some. she keeps asking for american girl doll stuff, so that's probably what she will get. originally, she wanted a doll house, but i think maybe we'll save that for christmas if she still wants it.

school is still not starting for another month, but i have so much to do in my new classroom and have a couple things to pick up in my old one. i have a lot of boxes to sort through and organize. ugh. it seems like such a huge process. plus, i still have some things to figure out curriculum wise before it's all said and done.

our staycation will take place on a beach. 'nuff said. :)

a few of my pals and i are going to see the so you think you can dance tour perform in november. i am super excited to see them dance in person. :)

what else has been going on in our world? swimming lessons (which are wrapping up next week), spending time at the Y, playing, reading, going to the swimming pool club (with a friend who is a member) and hanging in the baby pool, and just enjoying summer.

the kids stopped by daycare yesterday to ride the ponies and i have video and photos of that which i hope to post later tonight. i'm also working on making brynn's bday invites. this is the first time i have done this, as i have always purchased them in the past. i think they are turning out pretty cute...we'll see.

shopping: we did some shopping this weekend so i could update my wardrobe a little bit b/f starting a new job.

bow business has been picking up a bit and i need to start prepping for a craft show i'll be setting up shop for in december by making a lot of extra bows ahead of time. my master's class starts back up on 8/9. ARGH. not ready for that to start yet.
