A "Lot" of summer on my mind, and a "little" bit of school...

A "Lot of Summer"
All of a sudden it is mid July?????  It feels like summer just started but truthfully I have been on summer vacation for almost a month now.  I have been packing my days and nights full with summer fun but now is the part where I beg for time to PLEEEAASE slow down.  Here is what I've been up to.

The first weekend of summer was our son Mark's Christening.  It was a gorgeous day and everything (no matter how stressed I was pulling it all together) went better than planned. Here is our cutie-patootie.

Let's see, the rest of the weeks up until now have pretty much been... beach, pool, relax, repeat...


We mixed a little fourth of July fun in there too!!

Another highlight of my summer so far was the Rugged Maniac 5K Obstacle Course that we participated in with some friends.  It was a very muddy day spent doing a lot of challenging obstacles but I LOVED every minute of it.  Can't wait to do it again next year.  This picture is before the race so we are not looking so muddy but believe me it took four shampoos to get all the mud out of my hair when we got home.

Oh, and I discovered a way to make parenting easier with this....
I ordered it online and it came in the mail over the weekend.  I can not believe how much he loves it and also how much I love it.  This morning he fell asleep in it while I unloaded the dishwasher.  Really? How did I not discover this until now, with my third child? 

A "Little" Bit of School

So, this has been my summer so far and I still have much more of it to go.  I am having a blast and soaking up every ounce of family love but I still have a little part of my brain that is tuned in to my classroom and the upcoming school year.  Some of my "me" time I have spent planning out the decor of my classroom. I'll get into more of the nitty gritty details and planning as the summer goes on, but this is a good place to start easing my mind into September.  
I put together this collection of Polka Dot Themed Classroom Labels, Signs, and Decor to use around my room.  I wanted to liven up my space this year and Polka Dots are my thing lately.  Please visit my TPT store and take a look.

I also uploaded a Free Download of my Polka Dot Themed Word Wall.

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer!!  Leave a comment about what you are up to this summer.
