Tablescape #22 Patriotic

It's Thursday and time for Tablescape Thursdays hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. I am having so much fun decorating my table each week. Be sure to visit Susan and see all the lovely tables for this week.
Every table should have some kind of whimsy. Patriotic pinwheels do just that. Glass hurricanes with colored glass stones and white candles to carry the theme.
Overview of the table. Simple, festive and non breakable plates are perfect for young boys!

Family Reunion

This past weekend was my family reunion on my mom's side. It was held at my cousins house in Hurst, TX. We all had a lovely time.

Here is my mom, in black, with her siblings. This is my family minus my husband who didn't come because he had to work and my son who was taking a nap inside. That's me in the tye dye t-shirt.
We had fun splashing in the pool and eating great food.

Making homemade ice cream. My nephew had fun turning the crank on the old ice cream freezer.

We had fun playing lawn games. The all time favorite bean bag toss game. That's my son in the blue and my niece in the red.

We are looking forward to the next reunion!

New Space

My old classroom is completely empty and everything is moved either to my new room or taken home. A view of my new classroom.
All my boxes and crates have been unpacked and placed into the closets and cabinets. The fire Marshall has not issued occupancy so the furniture people can't deliver and assemble the furniture but we can go in and unpack boxes; somethings wrong with this!
Looking forward to a new school year in a new building. Let the summer begin!
