Oh, my! Where do I begin? I've been gone so long from my blog that I've had people checking on me...All I can say is life got in the way..It was been a crazy busy time...I left off when we traveled to visit my Granny Ross who had a stroke, getting ready for Luke's graduation, meeting with teachers that worked with him this year and then meetings with ones that will work with him this year, vacation trips to Myrtle Beach, SC and Charleston, SC, adopting two new fur babies, a bunch of other things going on and ending this week with Luke's last day of soccer camp...I'm ready for some lazy summer days....

It has been an emotional time and busy time...Our vacation time did wonders for my spirits and stress levels...Ending the school year and planning a new one got to me so bad and I was a mess...My emotions were everywhere..I cried at everything and that is so not me...But when it comes to my kids I wear my heart on my sleeve....Ending another school year and planning on another one got the best of me...I will share more about that as it gets closer to school...It is summer and I want to focus on summer things...We will still have some days of school here at the house this summer to keep Luke up to where he is and so he doesn't forget everything this summer, so his teacher (from the school system that traveled and worked with him at preschool this year at our church) has been coming to the house to have class with him here...

But I hope to get some things finished up on my work table to share with you and check in more often in the coming days...I still have the house tore apart with the decorating...Changing things and taking out things...Trying to decide if I want to make stencils or buy them...We're going to remodel the laundry room first and unless we change our minds we plan on putting bead board on the ceilings...Thinking about painting the gathering room a lighter color....etc.....So, I will share as we decide to do these things....

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!! ~~~~~hugs, Jen

Glad to see you back. I can so relate to the hectic life.
I thought of you last week I was in a place called Trash and Treasures between Cleveland and Helen and there was a Colonial blue board that had "the Taylor's" on it. I almost got it for you!!!
