5 Things Friday {5.19.17}

num5

We are winding down the school year, y’all. Tyler has 2 exams today and 1 on Monday and he is DONE with his sophomore year. Praise Jesus! The other kids still have a couple more weeks to go. But we’re almost there. It was a productive week in our house. I got a lot of projects finished and knocked a bunch of stuff off my to do list!

1. I finally finished the pantry. If you follow me on Instagram then you saw the saga with ANTS in the pantry. Gross. So I pulled every single thing out, scrubbed and sanitized it, and bought new air tight containers. It was a job. A long, ugly, job. But it is much more functional now.

2. On Mother’s Day, Matt power washed the back deck and the wooden furniture that my dad built so I could start staining the furniture. My dad built this amazing bar from scrap wood he had in his shop. It’s awesome and I cannot wait to put it to good use this summer. I have grand plans for this back deck to make it more functional and they are already under way. I can’t wait to share the transformation with you.

3. Our neighborhood pool opened on Sunday and the kids were so happy. That water was FRIGID! They jumped right in and had a great time. I sat on a patio chair and read a book. Everyone was happy. I can’t wait to spend long summer days at the pool with friends. It’s going to rock.

4. Matt and I had some errands to run earlier in the week and the girls didn’t want to come but Mason did. He tagged along and had a great time. It’s so nice being able to take kids one at a time and spend some time with them. We got ice cream and had so much fun with him. He has the best sense of humor.

5. Matt put together the first of several patio sets that I’ve ordered. We were supposed to go to Tyler’s end of the year athletic banquet but he had to study for 3 exams the next morning so he opted not to attend. He studied for hours and hours. It’s nice to see him actually taking school seriously for once. Ha! So Matt got to spend the evening putting together my new patio dining set. I love it. I found it on clearance on Target.com for a steal. It’s the perfect size for what I needed. The kids love it! They’ve eaten breakfast and dinner out there every day since we set it up.
