Remodeling and Research!

Remember this?

Not the prettiest of kitchens - right?

It's taken 2 1/2 months...

Gone from this...

to this...

to THIS!!!!!!!
(not the greatest of pics)

We don't have all of the things back on our walls yet, but we LOVE how it turned out!

A HUGE sigh of relief that it's done! (and yes, we did everything but the countertops!)

Here's a bit of wisdom for the rest of you - DON"T EVER do a kitchen remodel during the last semester of grad school, and the end of the school year.  Yes, I know - we are the only people crazy enough to try this!

On to research...
Working on our Bubble Maps:


and our Circle Maps:

We worked on our Can/Have/Are charts this morning and will finish our cover sheets tomorrow.  

We plan on starting the "actual" writing portion the end of this week and continuing throughout next week.  Our First Grade Writing Project Open House is the 14th.  
(more pics to come later!)

These pages and ideas came from my Woodland Animals Shared Research and Writing Project.  You can check it out by clicking on the picture below.

Have a great rest of the week!


  1. I know you're glad to be done! Y'all did a great job! I love the tile behind the sink!


    1. Thanks! That's my favorite part! (I need a manicure though!) :)

  2. Your kitchen is beautiful! I love the backsplash! Enjoy!

    1. Thank you! It's so nice to actually be able to use our kitchen again after so long, but it was sooooo worth it! The backsplash is my favorite part too!
