The process of setting up the preschool classroom

My first day of preschool begins on August 27th, 2012 and this is what my classrooms look like today! Yikes!  Both classrooms are sitting empty because my husband will be painting the inside of the indoor classroom this weekend and power washing the outdoor classroom over the weekend.
