This week….. well, this is really a sampling of the last 2 weeks via my instagram.
I don’t often share a lot of my personal life here on O + P, but we’ve had a tough week and a half. Well, mostly Denali has. If you don’t know my daughter, she is the quietest, sweetest, kindest little girl. Denali is in 6th grade, and this year she started middle school. Anyways, to make a very long story short, she caught some girls in her class doing something they shouldn’t and so she reported it to the teacher. As a result, these girls threatened Denali in a very serious way (I am being vague for a reason). But, it didn’t end there. Even after suspensions, these girls came back even more aggravated and the threats and bullying continued. And as of yesterday, these girl’s friends are now picking on my baby. We are hoping this will end, but if it doesn’t end NOW we ready to make some big changes. The whole process has not only been worrisome for Denali, but it’s also involved many painful trips and phone calls to the principal’s office.
On the bright side, my parents were here last week for a few days. We got to celebrate my Dad’s birthday together. And my sister in law came from San Diego with my very cute niece and nephew. That’s his sweet little hands making donuts with my mom.
We also went to LA on Saturday. It was nice to get out of town. We hit IKEA and then went to West Elm LA and Emily Henderson was there with a Pop-Up Etsy shop. It was fun to meet her again (I met her previously at Alt). My kids loved the fancy drinks and treats and we played in the photo booth. And I might have ordered a new chair for our living room (eeeeek!). Then we headed over to The Grove and got some dinner at the farmer’s market.
