I am really liking

freezer paper stenciling. Has anyone else tried it? I made these two shirts. I'm excited because
1) the pink one is so very nerdy. My kids will love it!
2) they are both t-shirts, but embellished, so I can get away with wearing them to work even if it's not a Friday.

You should all try it.

So this summer my main accomplishment was painting the living room/entryway of our house from nasty skin tone to pure earth. Looks a little dark in the photo, but I love it. Then I needed this new flower and some new pillows for the living room.

I also finished my second summer of my master's program, so only one more to go. Then, I went to Mexico! That trip warrants its own post, though.

So, as my freedom is being stripped from me on Thursday, I want to ask you out there: What do your kids say they wish their teachers did better/different at school? Particularly for math and science teachers. Or what do you wish your own teachers would have done? I'm curious.

And, PS, things like giving homework, giving tests, and being wonderful are things I can't change--so don't say that.
