So school did start back (like oh 2 weeks ago!) and while that might make some believe that I now have all the time in the world, that apparently isn't so. Suddenly we're thrust into a world of homework, practices, games and lots of other craziness and it only shows signs of getting worse! We haven't yet gotten into the routine of managing it all, but we're working on it!
As crazy as it's been, a few really fun things have been happening! Beyond all the back-to-school stuff, I have been traveling quite a bit teaching at various events. During my trip to New Jersey this weekend for the Scrapbook Expo, I finally got to meet one of my long-time friends, Melissa, and her adorable (and precocious!) daughter, Rachel! It was such a joy to finally meet in person after all this time! There were also several wonderful women that came just to take my classes and they really made the trip a great one - Jing-Jing and crew, Christine, Doreen, Beth! But I have an especially huge hug for Lynn. Thank you so much for not only spending one day with me, but TWO! You are such a sweet and wonderful person and I am so glad to call you a friend! (And as I'm typing this, I'm still sitting in the Charlotte airport enjoying my 4 hour layover and anxiously waiting to get home to my guys!)
AND at his scrimmage against another county this week, Ethan will be playing the position of quarterback! It's been his dream since he started playing and while he loves being a running back/defensive tackle, he can't seem to get the grin off his face, he's soooo excited!I'm excited for him and just a tad bit proud! :)
Last but not least, my little man celebrated his 6th birthday yesterday. It's unreal to me that he's six! When did that happen??! ("On my birthday", he'd tell me! ;)) Since I was going to be out of town on the actual day, we celebrated it in style last Sunday. We headed out to Kart Kountry for go-karts, video games, miniature golf, batting cages, bumper boats and more! Now *that's* a party! I think it's safe to say a good time was had by all! (And he's totally milked his birthday for the entire week!) Here are a few photos of our day and my happy BIG boy!
Lots of things are coming this week that I hope to share with you including a guest blogger stint at Scrapbook & Cards Today, an appearance at TwoPeas for Miss KP's Super Sketches, and as a guest designer at Scrapbook Deals4U.com.
Have a wonderful week!
