It's Just the Beginning....

Why it's just the beginning of our Girls' Clubhouse!

Today Baby Bee and I worked on cleaning out the playhouse.  It's just a small little playhouse that came with our cottage when we bought it and for a few years it was a playhouse for Baby Bee and her cousins and friends.

But today, the journey started.......

Can you believe all that stuff was in that little playhouse?
Well, the slide wasn't in there or the bike, but everything else was.
Here is Baby Bee cleaning all the dishes and play food so we can donate it for someone else to play with now.  Why Baby Bee!  Why are you spraying your mama?  Could it be you don't really want to clean all those things?  What?  You'd rather be inside reading a book?  Dork Diaries again?  Oh well, it looked like she might have actually had a little bit of fun cleaning all those things.  At least she got to spray her mama with the hose!

And this is what we are left with....
Two wicker chairs that Sewing Bee gave us when she moved to her new little cottage.
A little wicker table that she also had.
And Baby Bee's old desk chair.  
Oh yes, these are the little eyelet valances Worker Bee and I had in our first apartment.  Isn't that sweet?

Well, you don't really think we're all done, do you?

Does that look like it has been 
Sweet Beeified?
(Not to be confused with beatified and, of course, not to sound irreverent.)

We need some COLOR! 
 Aqua, lime green, and red!

Why the floor will be a red and white checkerboard!
The wicker chairs will be painted aqua!
The little table will be lime green!
The blue chair is going red!
The back wall of the playhouse will be chalkboard paint!
And there will be numerous other little transformations to complete before we are all done.  

Baby Bee and I had so much fun dreaming up all the little details we're going to put into our new little cottage.  We just sat in those wicker chairs and talked and talked about it.

I know she's going to enjoy her little cottage again and so will I!

And thank you for hanging in there with me.  I haven't been able to visit much and I haven't started too many new projects because I am working so hard on getting my classroom completely organized for next year.  You see, I am going to have two new teachers I will be working with next year - not just new to me, but new to teaching - and I had better get my stuff in order.  School's been our for two weeks, but I've been over there almost every day cleaning out files and cupboards and reorganizing!  I have to have it all done by the first week of July.

I hope to share many lattes and iced teas with you this summer!  
So glad you buzzed in for a visit!
