I know that one is not a school layout but figured another layout wouldn't hurt, right. Now I am ready to go hit the pumpkin patches and Halloween and Fall festivals. Enjoy your week and nice fall weather!

I felt really weird last night because I found my self really missing him. But I couldn't figure out why seeing as they are usually gone for weeks at a time during the summer.
Then it hit me. The fact that I have no contact with him is what is killing me. I don't know how he is doing or if he is having fun or learning anything. When they are with their grandparents at least I can call and check up on them. But they are out in the middle of the woods, with shotly cell service I'm sure, not that he has a phone or could take it anyways.
Now don't get me wrong I know he is safe and having loads of fun but not being able to contact him just makes me feel a little empty. I am always checking my email seeing if there are any updates from the leaders and counting down the days till Saturday.
You wanna hear something funny, though. The day after he gets back both him and Preston will be on a plane to Dallas to spend time with my in-laws.... I know! I am beginning to see an advantage to keeping your children in your house till they are forty. Ha, just kidding.
On a brighter note I believe the 2 page bug hit me because I managed to make another one. Crazy, huh.
Pink Paislee: patterned paper, cardstock stickers, kraft paper, unknown: tickets, ribbon and tag
Oh and I am way excited about Eclipse coming out this week. I have to wait till Friday to see it so I am considering boycotting all media till then.
Have a great week!

I was happy to know that some of my mom's sewing skills rubbed off on me. Now I just need to practice because I still have some improving to do.
Of course, fabric wasn't the only thing I was playing with. I got to play with some LYB Fresh Print.
And no your eyes are not deceiving you. Those are girls. I know it is rare to see on my blog. When I visited my parents earlier this month I made sure I can home with girly picture to scrap. Another line I got to play with was the MME Sophie's Charming line.
Now that is just two of the lines I got to use over at Croppin Paradise. But you will have to wait and see what else I got to use. Don't forget to also check out the blog. They are giving away some SEI for Memorial Day weekend.

In other news, Preston has finally learned to ride his bike without training wheels.
My Little Shoebox: pattern paper and die cuts, American Crafts: thickers, KI: stickers,kraft cardstock, staples and ribbon.
He has been so excited and we just had to go get a "helement" right away. Although, I am thinking we might have to invest in knee and elbow pads because he has already taking several spills and the "helement" has not prevented scraps and bruises. Just one of the perks of being a boy.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

School is officially out for summer! Can't believe that another year has gone by. We ended this one with another graduation. This time it was Isaiah.
My older baby has completed the fifth grade and off to middle school next year. I will also go ahead and go on record that next year on the first day of school I might be locked up in a closet crying as I try and grasp the fact that I will have one of my boys staring kindergarten and the other middle school.
Time to kick off a great summer!

Tonight was Preston's preschool graduation. And let me just say watching a bunch of four and five year olds singing songs and doing skits is hilarious. There first set of song was performed in their pajamas.
Of course Preston couldn't help but wavy hello.
But then they had a "costume" change and apparently they did all the dressing themselves.
Yep that handsome looking boy with the buttons all miss matched is mine.
He didn't even let me fix it after they were done. I figure at that point it really didn't matter much anymore.

I finally broke down and made some today. Tortillas and I have a love/hate relationship. Why you ask? Well as much as I would love to eat them everyday it is a pain to make them. I don't know how my mom does it, for she make them everyday or just about. Sometimes twice a day! I am lucky to make them twice a month. Plus I can't find the flour to make them here so I have to ration what I have. I try and pick up a bag or two everytime I go visit my parents. So tonight I feast like a good mexican should!
In scrap news....I have been trying to improve my card making skills. I don't like making cards. I only make them when I have to. Mainly because I don't do anything with them. But my MIL likes them. She actually appreciates hand made items. So now that I feel like they serve a purpose, I find myself making them a little more often.
