Who doesn't like some good BEFORE and AFTER pictures? This is what we were dealing with in summer school, finishing up our History and Art curriculum before 2nd grade. "Where's the tape? Where is a pen?? Where is that Monet print???" I'd had enough. It was time to start the new school year off right. After a little inspiration and a lot of perspiration, this is the AFTER photo.
Inspiration came in the form of those VERY handy over the door SHOE organizers. (about $7 at Wal-Mart) Our girls have been so excited to see their stuff they have been doing arts and crafts all week! I am so proud of our project I have been leaving the doors open just so I can glance over and feel the satisfaction. Ahhhh
If you zoom in that 2nd photo you'll see my other favorite purchase: AN ELECTRIC PENCIL SHARPENER. Why didn't I get one of these years ago?! Except for the horrible grinding sound that terrifies our 5 month old baby, it has been a great thing! Ready for school NEXT WEEK.
