Early yesterday morning we met up with Sally and her boys to go garage saling. I'll be honest and say that garage saling with small children isn't as enjoyable as garage saling would be alone or with a good friend. Despite the many seat belts that were buckled and un-buckled, the "I don't want to hold your hand" and the "Please just look, and don't touch!" we still had a blast. For the most part, the kids did great and I think they actually had fun. Here are a few of the fun things that I found yesterday.
Full set of wooden alphabet and number blocks $2
New container for my basil .50
Cute watering can .50
I was really excited to see this chalk board. I've been wanting one for our dining room for quite awhile now. There's something rustic about chalkboards and I just love them. This one was $5. When I brought it home, I wiped it down well and then sanded any rough spots.
I decided to paint it a nice light brown color. It's the same color as the paint in our bedroom and we already had all the paint supplies in the garage. The first coat of paint always looks a little funny.
I love it after the second coat! I'm not done with it yet though...... I'll post a picture when I'm done. What a fun project and super affordable also!
Another fun find was this John Deere hat for Judah. It's brand new and I think it was $1 or less. I can't get over how good green looks on him with his red hair and blue eyes.
I love how happy Paisley's face is. She totally adores him.
Last night I went out with some friends to celebrate a Birthday. It was the first time that Jeremiah put both Judah and Paisley to bed without me home. Everything went smoothly. She took a bottle before bed and went to sleep just fine. She slept all night long like everything was normal. When I was sick, my milk supply went way down but, it's back to normal now and I'm really thankful for that. I plan on nursing her for quite awhile longer but, it's nice to also have the flexibility of her taking a bottle. I don't feel bad if Jeremiah puts her to bed once in awhile so, I can go have some fun.
Today Jeremiah helped a lady in our church move. The kids and I went to a friends Birthday party and Judah had a blast running around outside. This evening Jeremiah started building my first raised bed. We are going to have a little fall garden and I'm super excited about it. I've been doing some reading on fall gardening and although I'm defiantly a beginner gardener, I'm ready to learn.
Hooray for good soil and boards!
