we got a piano

The biggest news of our week is that we got a piano! And piano lessons officially start for the girls on Thursday. I’m excited and they’re excited about it, so maybe we will have another Mozart and Beethoven in the making. I’ll do a later post on the piano and what I learned as I was consulting with various piano technicians as I was searching for a used piano. You can see another view of the piano on my instagram!

This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…

True and Brave have pretty good fluency in reading. I’m amazed and thankful that I can be part of their learning (though it is hard as heck!).

Don’t wake Soul up from a nap in the car. She’s scary!

I’m thankful for Danni’s and Annie’s honest blog posts. Contentment and mom guilt are definitely things I wrestle with too.

With summer here, I’ve been checking Treehouse Kid & Craft and Kiwi Crate for some summer kid projects! Both sponsors that I adore!

I can’t believe it’s June. We’re so excited for some of our summer plans. Any of you have a vacation in the works?

Crystal Lewis has a kickstarter project going on. I’ve been a big fan of hers for. like. ever. and I’m excited for the possibility of a new album. If you are too, I say you go check it out here!

Thankful there’s one week left of homeschool! We’re going to end the school year with a poetry night. The girls have been hard at work learning poems all year long. I think they have about 8-10 memorized.

This hanging chalkboard would be great for a little summer learning and drawing! Plus, it’s only 10 bucks!

We’ve got real summer heat this weekend, so we’re spending time working on indoor projects and maybe watching a movie! What are your plans this weekend?

    That piano is gorgeous. I’ve never seen one with legs like that! I hope it sounds as good as it looks!

    Oh, love the piano – if we had space for it I´d get one for myself. 🙂

  • Julie says:

    A friend for years talked about getting a piano not for the music but because of how it makes a room look. 😉 Yours goes very well with your décor, especially noting how the table legs are similar to the ones on your piano. Nice! Good for your girls, too!

  • Annie says:

    Thank you for linking to my post, Ruby Ellen and I’m glad you can relate. I am thankful for honest moms out there like you who aren’t scared to share those less than pretty moments. Mom guilt is such a point of struggle for me, but I’m praying to learn to let go. I assume it will be easier to be laid back once the new baby arrives 🙂

    oh the legs on that piano!!!

    I had a piano when I was younger. It’s such a lovely addition to a home. Such a fun little post with lots of procrastination fodder… thanks. haha. Good luck to the little ones for their poetry evening. I am so excited for when we start building our family and homeschooling. 🙂 Love Elle xo

    That piano is a major score in my book! You’re girls are so lucky to be given lessons in their own home. What kind is it?

  • Aliceey says:

    The piano is adding a classic look to the room. The table also has the same leg design, I have got a new decoration idea. I would like to share it!

    I am currently looking for a beautiful used piano and am just dying of jealousy over here. Awesome find!!

    What a beautiful piano! I love having my childhood piano, an early gift from my parents, in my home. My children may grow up with free access to music, but the upright was purchased during the ’80s and is not a looker like yours.

  • I am so glad you have been checking us out this summer! We have sure been crafty! and PS…piano=lovely!!

  • Jessica says:

    The most beautiful mid century modern piano ever made! I’m happy to have bought one and absolutely love it. So few of this model were made in the 1960s so they are incredibly rare, especially as years go by. If you are looking for one, I suggest contacting this Etsy shop:
