So it’s debatable if you can call this week 1 of our summer considering we had our last half day with students the Tuesday after Memorial Day & teacher work days on Thursday and Friday…but let’s be honest teacher work days feel like summer to me! I thought this would be a nice way to catalogue our achievements (& maybe failures) as we work through this summer full of house projects and PD workshops. So without further ado, here’s what WEEK 1 has brought us!
We fully demolished out bathroom & everything is currently hanging out in our patio as we dump stuff, sell the slavagable & wait to reinstall useful items. Will wanted to wait until everything was out to call the plumber to hopefully save on some labor costs there. So on Tuesday he called the plumber and he came by this week with an estimate for labor. So thankful that this part of the project is moving along nicely (even there were more than a few bumps in the road this weekend with demo work).

We also purchased a vanity & lighting for the bathroom from Wayfair (Memorial Day sales!). Can’t wait for those to come in. :)))) We also got to work on getting quotes for tile installation (we are retiling the whole house). Will is still deciding whether or not to do it himself. I know *tile sucks* but we want to weigh the cost of whole house professional job vs partial us/partial professional vs. doing it ourselves since were home all summer. I’ll update you once we decided.
I spent most of my teacher workdays planning for next year (sick I know). I am not assigning dates to lesson plans but I want to clean up some lessons, activities, and electronic resources before the mad scramble of August. AP World History is getting a major rehaul from College Board so most of my attention will be in that direction this summer. Luckily I have some awesome friends who also teacher AP World to collaborate with over the next few weeks.
Other than that, nothing major is going on. Doing some reading for my two summer programs and this weekend we reveal our summer book swap for 2019. Interested in what that is check out my post HERE!
