WOOHOO! I am so excited.

I love using sketches and I love seeing how other interpret the same sketch. So I was so excited when Deanne Emailed me that I had made her DT for her sketch team:


Make sure you all come over and check out her blog!

More layouts and cards and update on kids

So here are the three cards and five of the layouts I have gotten done in the past week. I figured with Blake entering second grade (tomorrow is the first day) then I should probably get the first day of first grade scrapped...LOL

And on that note, I can not believe the kids go back to school tomorrow. Zach is in 7th grade this year. I am having a hard time with this. I guess its just seems that he has grown up way too fast. Becca is in 5th grade. She got the same teacher Zach had. I really like this teacher so I'm happy with it. Blake is in 2nd and has the same teacher Becca had. I'm sure he will end up loving her as much as Becca did.

And Becca had her third and final (I hope) hearing test done today. She unfortunately does have minor hearing loss in both ears, but more so in the left year. But even though she would benefit from hearing aides, her doctor is afraid having hearing aids in her ears will cause her psoriasis in her ears to flair up worse. So she will get preferential seating in classes and we will see if that helps any.

Well thats it for now... it's starting to storm so I am going to have to shut the computer down for a little while.

Where has the summer gone?

Can you believe the kiddos head back to school on Friday. It seems this summer break has flown by. Normally I am ready for school to start back, but this year I am just not ready. I feel like the kids haven't had enough of a break and I just am not ready to get back into the routine of getting up early. Although it will be nice to have the days quiet around the house again. And I don't start fall classes until August 18th so I will have a week of alone time before I spend my days doing school work. That will be nice.

That's about it for now. I have to take some photos of my new LOs and will post them when I get them taken and uploaded.
