The girls are about to finish up their first full week in 2nd grade. Tomorrow is their first spelling test of the year and they are fully prepared to ace it. This weekend we are heading down to Dallas to take a little family vacation to Great Wolf Lodge. Seriously, if there is one in your area and you have kids, go check it out. It is such a fun family getaway. My kids are really stoked!
There is big news in my family right now- my dad is getting married in January. I will write more about this later, but one of the main things leading up to this event is that he is selling his house and building a new home with his future wife. This fall I will have the monumental task of going through the rest of my mom's things. Let me rephrase that-- going through ALL of my mom's things. This will be a large and painful task, but I know I can't keep it all. This past weekend, I decided to move my old desk, from my old room over to my current house. I've been needing a desk all of my own, and I am super pleased with my new space. Now Mike and I can work together in the office-- him at his desk, and me at mine. The desk itself is an antique roll top with all kinds of interesting word work. I love it.
My "new" desk. I love all the nooks and crannies for storing pencils and paper.
Also, the photos on top were just the same ones my mom had up at her house. I will eventually change them. Not sure it's my style to have a big photo of me on my desk. Ha!
My mom and I scoured lots of antique stores to find just the right desk, so it has some special memories attached to it.
