Project Two - done

Project #2 for the day!

Why is it you can have a big container of pens and pencils but never one that will write.
I cleared out our pen bin, sharped all the pencil, checked all pens and put
a sharpener on the side
Things seem to grow when left alone!

In just a few minutes, look what I did all cleaned up!
The bag on the floor is my errand bag, it stores all the little items that I need to get done when I'm out on the town.

Project One -done

This file crate has been a hot spot on my cabinet for a month now!
I need to make a home for something so clutter doesn't have a place to gather.

It is now the new home for the school papers that my girls bring home!
Instead of laying on my desk where they can get lost in the stack of letters and bills.
*I've planned on doing lots of small projects like this today.
I want to see how many I can get done in one day.
Let me! Know how many you got done today?

Band Day Parade

Our Little Brownie!! 1st Parade
Believe it or not our little brownie superstar wouldn't wave to us.
Shy? I think not!
Greensburg was a great Sight to See!
This year the whole town was taken away by a tornado and nothing was left.The families of Greensburg had to start over from scratch. What would you do if that happened to your family or friends?
The U.S. Army Band Finished our parade.
Without the Men and Women this unit represents we would not
call ourselves free.
Thank you to all of our Troops!

Mini Project #1

Sometimes a project just moves you to the point, it needs to be done right now.
See my point
Crying for some organizing help. But I didn't have time to run to the hardware store
and get the latest greatest organizing tool.

But a couple of good nails and a hammer did the trick just fine for me. Don't you think!
Up and out of the way!

Here is my Tackle It Tuesday Project #2 - The Downstairs Linen Closet ( The Girls Space )

Here is my plan:
A. Each of the girls has their own stack of towels and washcloths, one for everyday in the week.
B. Each of the sets of girls ( by who the share a room with) has a cup with a tub of toothpaste, floss, a brushing timer ( egg timer) and toothbrush with a cap.
C. On the top shelf is hair care Items and Bath time fun stuff. Extra toilet paper and air freshener.
Now lets see if it stays that way.

Going To The Hill !

Our Girls ask about once a week to go run the hill on KU campus, Jayhawk School,
or Daddy's School.

This was one of our family stops so we could hear the bells on the hill.
If you love KU you know where we had our fun day.
