A few things lately...

I  know I have been quite busy but thought it would be neat to share what has taken up my time lately.  And I have been getting back to visiting your blogs - which really makes me feel accomplished.  And believe it or not, all the good things I am seeing is making miss and want to scrap.  YAY!!

 - Got a part time job at a nursery school as a substitute (with the chance that it could turn into more).
    LOVE it!!  I actually was called in to work about 9 different sessions in May and June.  And let me     tell you, that little time spent with 3 or 4 year olds is tiring!!

- Baseball season for my son...need I say more?  Who by the way, pitched this season and really likes    it.

- STEPS training with my daughter and a model clay longhouse with my son.

- End of the school year concerts and activities: son's instrumental concert, daughter's chorus concert, son's piano recital, daughter volunteering at her school's 50 year celebration, and this weekend it will all (sort of) end with my daughter's dance recital!!!  I am so excited about this.  We are at a new studio this year and the ballet classes put on a production.  The show is only 1 hour long and the production is the Lion King!!  She is an AMAZING dancer.  So proud of my two kiddos.

My daughter had to dress like the 60's (if possible).  Like the hair style?


And a sneak peek at the Lion King outfit
(no make-up or hair done). 

- Reading:  5 books our of my goal of 20 to read.  And some of you may know this but my reading "season" is April - September.  Thanks for the book suggestions.  I will be checking those out.  Currently reading...

Happy Scrapping,


  1. How lovely to see what you and your very talented kids have been up to. And yes 3 and 4 year olds are very tiring - each one thinks you're there just for them! Love that lion king outfit, can't wait to see the full version. Hugs xx

  2. It's a crazy time of year, isn't it? Congratulations on the teaching position. I loved working with little ones but yes, it's definitely tiring. LOL! I think you'll enjoy your book choice. I read it in my two-person book club a while back and we enjoyed it. :)

    1. Wanted to let you know that I am enjoying the book. I am 75% done with it and the more I read the more I like it. If we lived closer I would love to join your two person book club!!

I know my grandkids do me. lol I love all the wonderful things your kids are into and you have every right to be very proud of them. They are awesome! And yes, I do love your daughter's 60 styled hair. lol I really do! Wow what a costume too, that will be an amazing production from the looks of it. I too read mostly in the warmer months cause I love to read outside. lol There just isn't a better place to read unless it is in front of a fireplace or my feet propped on an old cook store that is going (like I used to do at my grandmother's, loved reading by that dang stove!) Hugs, Brenda
