Summer has gotten crazy! Why is it that I am busier now than when the kids were in school? Kevin has been traveling a lot for work, so I have been doing "projects".  I have torn apart both kids rooms, and redone them  - the decided to switch rooms, so I needed to take all of their hardware down, take down borders, fill holes, and paint. Aidan went off to camp on July 5th, and I jumped in. Here are a few pictures of the process...

It took 2 full days just to pull all of the things out of Aidan's room to get it started for Maddy. My Dining room looked like an episode of Hoarders! Needless to say, I donated more than 10 big lawn bags of things from his room, and threw out just as much. And now it is this awesome yellow green Maddy room.
Maddy's old pink room went much quicker, and my mom came over to help me finish it up. In 2 days Maddy and I emptied out 6 bags for donation, and another 5 or 6 to the dump. We took down everything from the walls, patched up a big hole from where her shelf got knocked down, and got to painting. Aidan chose the color Brown TeePee by Behr. 

Both kids love their rooms, and I am glad, because I am not doing it again for a while! It took 4 days, but it's all done now...

I am teaching Katie to sew - we are making a dress for her trip to Europe. This is her first time cutting a pattern...

Maddy has been at band camp mornings for the last 2 weeks, which ended in a fabulous concert at Beech Hill Farm.  My Grammy came to see it, along with my mom - here you see us all (Aidan, my dad, Maddys dad and Kevin all came, too, but this was a much better picture with just us Jones Girls... 4 generations!)

Then, this weekend... We were incredibly blessed to be Honorary Pit Crew Members for JR Motorsports - we were in the pits and garages all day! I will do another post with just that - I got over 30 autographs... Best Day EVER! (And yes, that's Jeff Gordon!)

You have been BUSY, girl!!! Those bedrooms look incredible - great work. And teaching a child to sew can be absolutely the most rewarding job ever. You are one marvelous lady, Marcy. :)
