Moving and unpacking

We started our move to our new home on Thursday and by Friday morning we were finishing up the final few items in the old place.
 This is the Guest Bedroom very empty from this view in the hallway.
 Guest Bedroom with the final bin full of my clothes and shoes from the closet.
 M packing up my desk and moving it out of my office.
 The Living room with all of it's random items.
 20 yellow bins full of our stuff waiting to be loaded into the moving truck. / The back bedroom.
 The whole laundry room was full of our furniture and belongings!
I came to LH 10 years ago with 10 shopping carts worth of stuff and am leaving with 20 bin full of our home!

 This is the view of all of the bins lined up waiting to be moved into our new home!
 Our new living room in much dismay (Monday Morning)

 It has taken 4 days to find the kitchen floor. It is still a work in progress but I insisted on washing everything in the dishwasher before it found it's new home in a cabinet!
My pretty purple bathroom!

Happy Monday!

Happy First day and or week to some of my teacher friends!

For many of my southern teacher blog friends Happy first week or even day of school!I still have a few weeks (2 and a half) until my first day back with students. I made a quick stop yesterday to drop off a few items in my room and took a few photos of some of my room.
 
 This is Mrs. Octopus. She is where you return books in my ocean library! This year she is sparkly!
 The beginning of a new school year brings many joys. One of theses joys in brand new school supplies. I color coordinate all of my grades from their erasers to their folders and notebook! I love new school supplies!
 More of my ocean theme around the library!
I can't wait until all my students are back! Especially my second graders! 
We are going to have a great time learning to read and add and subtract!

Living Room Furnature

Hello Family and Friends, I will try to post each night or the next morning to show you our progress in the moving process.
 Our furniture was delivered on Monday.It was piled into the middle of the room so that the painters could finish the touch up painting and  the contractors could finish fixing things.
 We got a sofa, love seat and a chair and a half. All of our couches have recliners in them!
Last night we went to see if they cleaned the floors. They did not so I did and then we put the sticky foam floor tab things (don't you love my description) on the bottom of all the furniture so they do not scape the floor.
 My love seat waiting for me to sit on it.
 We placed the couches close to the walls so that we could start moving our other furniture in on Wednesday evening.
 Our kitchen chairs.
Our kitchen table came without legs so they will be delivering them tomorrow.
 The chair and a half went into the master bedroom. It will be my comfy reading chair.
 I can't wait until the fall so I can curl up in my chair with my ipad and a nice warm blanket and read!
 Our first out of town visitors stopped by to check out the new place.

The beginnings of a kitchen

I present to you the beginnings of my kitchen!  All of our appliances are black as you can see. They are also ADA approved. This means that a person in a wheel chair can use them. 
(Long Story if you want to know ask and I will let you know)
 This black beauty makes ice too!
 Look at the storage options! The moveable drawers! For many of you this might not be exciting but for me it is glorious! I love new, never used appliances and all the options I have for a organized refrigerator!


 They were installing the dishwasher and refrigerator. If you are wondering about the space under the counter tops where cabinets should be, that is also ADA requirements.

 I LOVE this storage and I am NOT a fan of the location. Many emotions run through my head when thinking about it and none of which are happy. Do you see all of the wasted space in the corner? Wasted counter, wasted underneath storage.
 My new stove was in another room out of the way so they could install the dishwasher and refrigerator.
One of my favorite parts about the dishwasher and stove is that there are handles on them and I can put dish towels on the handles. Simple things make me happy!
So, that is the beginning of the kitchen. We plan on adding and fixing mistakes as needed. I will keep you all (family, friends and random blog hoppers) updated as more is complete!

Preparation for the school year begins!

This year I am teaching second grade AND I am going to be the librarian and teach library skills, research skills and writing skills for K-6. My plate is full. I spent all of June (after school ended) finishing up a huge library project that is now almost complete. I took an online masters class which just finished and I am now starting to prepare for this coming school year. After the cleaners washed my carpets I rearranged my teaching area and starting on a few projects...
 This is my cute little bulletin board
Theses drawers are part of a project that you can view on 2nd Grade Stuff
All you need is Drawers, Modge Podge, Scrap booking paper and Scissors 
 
This is my little reading area for the K, 1st and 2nd graders. I will be adding too it and post later.
It was a very busy Friday but productive at the same time! I hope at the end of Monday I feel just as good!
I hope all of you teachers out there are having a fun time preparing for your school year!
Amanda

Parts of my unfinished bathroom

 On July 11th I took this picture of the sink. That was the only piece in the bathroom. We will be changing the faucets eventually. Two days later we have...

 I don't think I am going to be able to reach the toilet paper from the toilet. We will have to move that.
 You can tell they are still working on the room... the shower is  full of sawdust.
The simple things in life... like a towel holder.
