Is This Summer?

I question the weather because we've had so much rain and cool weather lately, so to have two 80 degree days in a row, I'm a bit surprised and suspicious of what tomorrow may bring.  I'm down to 3 weeks and counting until I get a whole month off!  In the meantime, tomorrow my staff and I will begin packing 2 classrooms to get ready for a big move over summer to another elementary school.  It will be nice to have a Head Start presence in another school like my other site...I can't wait!  I'm excited to start new collaborations with the school district and because I'm fairly new in my job (only 2 months into it!), next school year will be my chance to shine for my new staff. 

As far as summer goes, I've never had that much time in the summer off, so I have big plans for the hubby and myself to get some much-needed chores done like hanging gutters and changing out 5 interior doors with new ones.  We've had the materials for these projects for a couple years now and I'm tired of looking at them in the garage.  I also plan on painting one of the bathroom's vanity from stained oak to cream with the installation of some beadboard inset on the cabinet doors...kinda shabby chic-ish.  I'll have to post some pics when it's all done.

Okay, now for some fun...I was looking through all the blogs I visit and found some new challenges, so it being my birthday today, I decided to do absolutely nothing but "play" in my craft room (luckily the hubby was in agreement, otherwise it wouldn't have been as fun!).  The  card I did was for a challenge over at  Cupcake Inspirations.  There is also another challenge that inspired this card.  It is the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge over at The Sweetest Thing.

Thanks for looking!
