Time for some pictures of WonderWell's reception area...it's coming together nicely thanks to Kelle Contine Interior Design, LLC! Check out the chairs we selected (they will be the pink color shown in the picture), the lime green poufs, and the "guitar pick" table...going to be playful, simple, and fun! My first question (having two littles myself) was, "How durable and stain-resistant are these pieces?" I then learned about the durability standard in the interior design industry referred to as "double rubs." >>> What Does Double Rub Count Mean? While it might sound like a funny term, it is an important measurement of the durability of fabric and could be the deciding factor in which piece of furniture you purchase. In the United States, fabrics are tested using the Wyzenbeek Method. During this process, a piece of cotton duck, which is a piece of heavy canvas, is repeatedly rubbed over the test fabric using a mechanized arm. Every back and forth motion of the arm counts as one “double rub.” taken from: http://www.transformationsfurniture.com/double-rubs-double-strength/ <<< According to our designers, these can withstand about 100,000 double rubs! So...we are good! #fromdreamtoconcrete #wonderwell

I don't know much about roofing, but I know WonderWell's is one of the prettiest I have seen. Cold formed steel trusses...and, similar to the gray/graphite color you see in our logo. #fromdreamtoconcrete #wonderwell

I saw this posted in an international Reggio Facebook group I follow by a school outside of London - how true is this quote? Students learn in different ways and this also reminds me of The Hundred Languages of Children concept - I love it! I also love the heart-shaped mirror. Mirrors are a Reggio staple and you will see them throughout Reggio-inspired schools like WonderWell...they serve many purposes in addition to increasing light and the depth of exploration. #fromdreamtoconcrete #wonderwell #reggioinspired

Custom hard hats are approved and on their way to WonderWell! Can you tell I am getting excited about TOURS TOURS TOURS?! I am also working on putting the final touches on our new hire packets and they are looking so good! I am so excited about them...my first ever! So many people have given me such great guidance...from payroll and accounting to insurance and benefits...thank you to the best, most efficient accountant, Jane Smith Oldham...and, thank you to Gerardo Retana for making sure we are setup and ready for employee direct deposits and tuition payments...and, thank you to Stephanie Branham Banks for getting our insurance and benefits squared away! I taught her twins during my very first year of teaching Kindergarten in Spring Branch ISD (and they started HIGH SCHOOL today)! I feel like we are all one big family and I love that about this journey! It's all coming together so nicely. Esteban starts in just a few days...we are ready and excited! It hasn't been easy, but it is so worth it and I know at this time next year I will be smiling BIG BIG BIG because our first Kindergarten class will have just walked through the door! #fromdreamtoconcrete #wonderwell

WonderWell's Under Armour polos are done! Love the distressed logo, Sarah Windsor! And, I love the video - have never seen this done before - you have been so fun to work with! Can't wait for TOURS TOURS TOURS! Almost time! #fromdreamtoconcrete #wonderwell
