As the summer is ending and I am am preparing myself mentally for the transition from being called "Leah" to primarily "Mrs. Gaeddert" or "Mrs. G" as a few of my students got into the habit of calling me. Along with the mental preparations I have been planning fun art projects, setting up my classrooms, and enjoying the last of my free summer days.
1. my new favorite corner of the house, finished right on time
2. some final pickins' from my garden
3. I'm going to miss having full days to snuggle with these doggies everyday
4. I've really been enjoying curling up and reading these Darling Magazines
5. my last few days of mid morning smoothies and short shorts
6. we *almost* finished the kitchen this summer- though I am really proud of how far we have come!
