Last week was crazy busy in the best way. We celebrated my dad's birthday and Mother's Day with some horse racing smashed between. All good, but exhausting. I woke up this morning to the realization that this is the beginning of the last three weeks of school. 14 full days and 1 half day left. It's going to fly by with the field trips and special events.  There is so much I want to accomplish before my days are filled with swimming and sunblock and time is running out. I made a list of chores that need doing and have committed to crossing at least one off every day. I started last night by going through Jane's drawers. All winter clothes are stored, outgrown clothes are in the hand-me-down pile. Check. I also started cleaning and organizing the family room bookshelves and will finish those today. Some of the items on this list can be accomplished rather quickly and others will take a big time commitment (the sewing room, ahem). I figure if I can attack one of these items every day, this house will be in great shape within a week or two.

It is also the beginning of Kids Clothing Week Challenge and I'm in. I don't have any specific plans beyond another set of nightgowns. My kids are pretty well kitted out for the summer – the only holes in their wardrobes are dresses and skirts. I have one Japanese craft book that has clothing in larger sizes (130, 140, 145, 150) that I am going to use as a starting point. The silhouettes are very simple and look like they will come together pretty fast. And when I'm finished sewing for the girls, it's back to my dress.

So yeah, it's the week I get things done. How about you? What are you up to?
