Not only does Jack get a killer new job

but we also got these:
With the new school replacing Belle Heth, the old materials not moving to the new school have been listed on the RCPS website for sale/auction. I have wanted these forever, but never wanted to pay the going rate. I got each chair/desk set and a full size globe for next to nothing. And even though I arrived early, I think I got some of the last ones.
In just the few days we've had them, the kids have done tons of "art" projects with zero prodding on my part. G even says he loves art more than video games. (I just shed a little tear of joy)
The perks of the new school are thus far, neverending! Now if the new school can somehow help me lose 40 lbs, it may solve all my summer problems!

I'm jealous! That's all there is to it--flat out jealous. Not that I have any room for them whatsoever but so what!

I bought a couple school desks off a friend who moved to the mainland. The kids love them. We have them out in the garage so it is great to send them out to do art. I have photos I have been meaning to blog forever. I can't believe how big S is. It has been to long.

That's great! Let me know how the school solves your weight loss woes. If it's that great we might just have to move to Radford.

Score! I bought a school chair and table when Mac turned oneish. Unfortunately, I paid the premium, but they will last forever . . .
