Yep, he is wearing crocks with socks.  On the wrong feet too Monkey and I finished our bench! Some stain, a little polyurethane, and more of my favorite blue paint :)
We actually followed the directions very closely, except for leaving off the angled portion of the side apron. Thanks for the plans Ana!

End of the School Year

Easy end of the year present for Monkey's teachers. While they all deserve something much more grand (like a new car) he has a LOT of different teachers, aids, and therapists, so we need to keep it simple.
Michaels had the cute garden stakes that Monkey personalized with smile faces, and we picked up rosemary and pots at Home Depot. We delivered them today, so nothing would interrupt my last day of freedom tomorrow.

More construction with Monkey.
This is how I hope to spend our summer together (our summer that starts NEXT WEEK).
Good thing he has a nice smile, because it has been an extremely rough week.
Finished product tomorrow, hopefully.

Exciting, I know. But a good way to use my favorite fabrics so I see them every day.

Kick awesome new shirt for the little guy, with the lady killer smile. It took me an entire episode of Venture Brothers to cut out all the little pieces of freezer paper. It may also give super powers.
