Uptown "FUNK"

With the start of school I've been M.I.A. I always find it hard to get back in the swing of things with the start of a new school year, and there are much more important things to take care of than blogging. I am fortunate to be able to spend my summers doing the things I enjoy doing, but it does make "back to school" even harder.



I tend to spend the time from the beginning of school through Labor Day in a funk. This year, the funk is even worse because my two "besties" on our faculty have moved on, one has just had a third child and is staying home and the other accepted a new position as an Admissions Director at another school. I am so sad not being able to see these ladies on a daily basis. I muddle through because I am professional, but it does not feel the same. I have lost four great friends in the past two years.



I hope I get out of this "back to school" funk really soon.

Uptown "FUNK", y'all!

MAGNOLIA Classroom Makeover

All I can say is that Ms. Nixon, a sixth grade math teacher, is one lucky educator. The team from Fixer Upper with Chip & Joanna recently partnered with a local magazine in Waco, TX to redo a local classroom. Ms. Nixon was selected.



Can you imagine having your classroom overhauled by this team? I would love it so much to have the input and resources of such a great and capable team. The room has me at shiplap, of course.






I hope Ms. Nixon and her 6th graders appreciate and enjoy this classroom all year long.

Fixer Upper, y'all!

In the Garden {August 2016}

We have received so much rain lately that the front garden is really green, and the plants are growing well.



Caladiums, foxtail ferns, hydrangeas, and giant leopard plants have filled in well and look great for late summer.






The pond itself is full to the top.




The garden looks great, but I am so ready for cooler weather.

In the Garden, y'all!
