New rug... step 1 of boys room makeover

I am so anxious to begin the boys room makeover! Since I am home with Joshua today I started with laying out the new rug from FLOR and I LOVE it! Because the rug is made in tiles I was able to make a custom size perfect for their floor space. Once I am sure of the layout I just need to use the glue circles to keep it in place. It seems to stay put without them but once the madmen start running around I think that may change.

 

Next step new paint! Just waiting for Greg, our painter friend, to come home from Colorado. We won't really be done until later in the year but so far so good!

Thanks to Pinterest for another great idea for classroom treats! I made these snack bag labels in Microsoft Publisher and got the chocolate coins on sale after the holidays.

Jacob's class just finished the unit on money so they will get a kick out of the coins. Joshua's class gets excited about everything which make the hour or so it took to put them together so worth it. Joshua even helped with the paper cutter and putting the candies in the bags.

Over the weekend we plan to make our family recipe for Irish soda bread that we posted about last March! 

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
