Okay, let me start at the beginning, otherwise this could just seem really weird.
Isn't it beautiful? It's actually designed for a child's closet, but if you turn it around backwards, it makes a perfect cubby for a fifth grader, don't you think?
And he carried the big, heavy box in for me!
And he put it all together for me!
And you know what the best part is?
He did this six times for me!
And that's not even the Husband-of-the-year part! This wasn't some simple trip to Lowe's to get a few shelves. He took me to the Lowe's in Greeley, and bought me three of them. That was last month. Then, he took me to Lowe's in Greeley again a few days ago. They had two, but one was damaged, so he bought me the one. Then he drove 30 minutes to Loveland. They had one, so he bought it. Then he drove another 30 minutes to Fort Collins and bought me the last one. My wonderful hubby literally spent an entire day driving around Northern Colorado, all so that my kiddos could have cubbies when school started, and I could keep my sanity. Isn't he sweet?
Yesterday, these cubbies were put to the test when all my kiddos (32- in case you have forgotten. I haven't) came in like a whirlwind and filled them right up. They love them!
I sent them to specials 10 minutes after they walked in, so we didn't have time to actually get them hung back up, but you get the idea.
This was a huge investment for me, but it is a lasting one, and I am just tickled pink! These are my newest favorite part of my classroom! And my fifth graders actually think they're cool, so that's an added bonus!
