Swimming Lessons, S’Mores and Other News

Hi everyone! Hope you all are well. I had hoped to get up some information regarding Save Evy’s Tree, but unfortunately I am still running numbers and figuring it all out. Before the whole Save Evy’s Tree thing came about, I had signed my kids up for swim lessons 4 days a week, two weeks in a row. My good friend Joy and her two littles, Thaddeus and Chloe, were coming up from the city and staying with us so Thaddeus can do the lessons as well.

I’m not going to lie when I say it’s a bit crazy over here. In between me working and these guys going nuts together

having camp outs

and swim lessons {which Jake and Thaddeus are so giving the poor teacher a run for her money}

and s’mores at night {and yes, I ate two, ugh, FATTY}

They are having SO MUCH FUN. And I love having my friend Joy here. She is the type of friend who you can go without seeing for months on end and then when you are together it’s like no time passed at all. You know how awesome those friends are??

She is also helping me not panic regarding Evy’s Tree. To be honest, sales have been really slow last week, so we haven’t jumped up too much on the percentage/goal scale. Today, as we were standing in line at Panda Express after swim lessons, I looked at her and said, “What if I don’t raise enough money and I really do have to close Evy’s Tree??” Her response? “Well, that’s ok. You will hire some cleaners to come through, deep clean your garage and put your life back on track. All will be fine.”

HA. And you know, she’s right. God knows what our future holds and it really will be ok. Today she also helped me screen print those tees you all want…

That’s just the pink and yellow, wait until you see the other colors. O.M.W. AMAZING. Seriously. Stephanie outdid herself when she made this logo. It’s seriously awesome! I got to thinking…if 250 of you bought a tee in the next week..well, things would be looking a little brighter over here! :) I hope to finish them all tomorrow and have them listed by Friday morning, so stay tuned!

Oh, and a couple other things…in case you don’t follow me on instagram {evystree}, did you see Jake’s “mohawk”? He has been asking for one for weeks. I just can’t stomach the thought of all his beautiful hair being cut off, so Brandon did this to tide him over.

Ha! He was so excited! I hoping that will be the end of that, but we’ll see. So I guess the point is, if you see the real thing in the next couple weeks, don’t be shocked.

Oh, and my house goals are coming along. The dinning room isn’t quite done, but I finished one chair slipcover and have the table painted!!! WHOOHOO!! One step at a time. :)

Ok, that’s it for now. Sorry to pack all that info into one post. A bit of an overload, I know. Hopefully I will be back tomorrow with more Save Evy’s Tree info. In case you don’t know what’s going on regarding that read here. Oh, the last day to order is July 5 and the shop will close indefinitely on July 6, just an FYI.

Big hugs everyone!! xoxo

    Love Joy and her beautiful babies!! :) Looks like you are having fun!
    P.S. I LOVE Jake’s new “do”. Brian has always said that when we have kids, our first boy is going to have a real mo-hawk! haha! I’m actually ok with it at this point! Hair grows back… :)
    Love you!!
