I know summer just officially started not too long ago, but it's already flying by way too fast.  It always does.  Homeschooling my kids nine months out of the year makes me really enjoy our summer breaks just as much as they do.  We've been filling our days with swimming and sewing and swimming and toasting marshmallows and swimming. 

I've been having a lot of fun with little housey projects like making these cafe curtains:

I also painted the bathroom door (finally!) and added chalkboard paint to the center of it.

I'm not so crazy about all the chalk dust that's always on the floor now but the kids have been requesting another chalkboard for a while so I obliged.  We made a huge one at our last house which you can see here, but we left it behind in our mad moving rush.  I wouldn't have a wall big enough for it at this house anyway because we have so many windows.

Some other house projects have screeched to a halt however, like the siding.  When we went from average temps in the 70's to an all of a sudden nationwide heat wave with the temperatures averaging 100 plus, it got pushed to the back burner.  I don't know if you've noticed or not, but it's hot out there.

I hope you all are staying cool!
