Home Projects



















My husband and I both woke up this past weekend with a need to organize, clean and work on the yard.
This cabinet above was in our laundry room located in the kitchen. My husband took it out of the laundry room and put it in one of the closets in the kids playroom so I can store toys the kids are not using.



















In the laundry room he built this wonderful and spacious pantry. I have some of my pantry stuff in the kitchen cabinets put I need more space for bulk items and extra items.

Placing the cabinet in the kids playroom made us clean it out again...go through toys and re-arrange a little.
















I also re-arranged the cabinet with crafts and school materials. I need more space for all of this stuff!
















I purchased these little drawers for the Spanish Phonetic/Spelling work for the kids and got it all organized.

The kids and I cleaned the entire house, added a few more plants to their garden. My husband planted a few plants in the front flower beds and mowed the backyard.















This picture is one of the flower beds.

We went to home depot and purchased several things for our long to do list for the home. Since my husband and I are both off in the summers we spend a lot of time working on the house. So far on our to do list: re-stain kids play set (this thing is huge...), paint scratches/spots on walls/trim work, paint the hall way and kitchen, re-caulk our shower, and re-seal a small area in our roof that seems to want to leak every year. We'll see how much we actually get done!

And I have also started working on planning our summer activities. The kids will be out of school in two weeks, daddy in three weeks and I have one week left at the College!!

Hey there! I am one of the people on the Montessori Book Club, but cant leave posts on there for some reason. I wrote a long one for Chapter 1, but did not go up (boo hoo!).

I don't seem to be able to leave any posts on that type of comment page on other blogs too - whereas its fine for this one. I guess maybe I could just do posts instead - but might interrupt the flow.

I wondered if you could do a huge favour for me - an fellow blogger and Monti addict - and let the group know about my dilemma. I wonder if there is some way of changing the comments page to the one you have so I can participate??

Many thanks,
Jess

PS Well done on the cupboard organisation. One of my biggest problems is working out how to store craft materials, montessori stuff and other toys I rotate at home so I can find it again and get to it when I need it.
