last sign-in Sunday...

before summer vacation...can you tell I am super duper excited to be done with school? I had a great year with the kids, but I think as I get older and wiser, I just enjoy my summer break more and more. I guess it doesn't help that I leave for Alaska one week after we leave out of school, and I have been planning this trip for almost ten months?

It was a relaxing weekend, but I do need to kick my butt in gear and get the house cleaned, get organized for Alaska (you know, all those errands one must do to get ready for a trip), and of course, do some scrapbooking with my good friend Aymee. I am excited for this coming Friday as she is coming to my house to crop the day away with me. I will also get to meet her mom, Carol. I am also excited about this, too. Carol is a teacher so I am sure we will have lots to talk about, especially comparing notes about state testing and curriculum.

So, the weekend has come to an end. I am not complaining this Sunday night. I have three half days of school this to love it!

Here's to summer vacations and a short work week.

just some new LO's

Last weekend, the family went to our cabin in Slate Run. They spent the time canoeing, hiking, walking, hunting, shooting, tubing and I spent the time just chilling and scrapbooking. I just needed time to relax and destress from school.

Here's to half days of school and fresh strawberries!

another DT reveal

Do you remember back in late March when I posted about hatching chick eggs? Well, I made a LO about it for my DT at sketch addicts. The kids at school are still talking about it.

Not much new happening...although I am happy to announce that I have only twelve more days of school until summer vacation and then I will be in countdown mode for our Alaska trip.

Enjoy the weekend and the sunshine.

Here's to new koi fish and unexpected phonecalls.

American Idol

Tonight is elimination night on American Idol. I know, I am such a dork, but I love AI. Are you a fan? Who do you like? I am a big Adam lover. He is definitely a cut above the rest. Go Adam...

Here's to all the Adam Lambert fans out there!

Imagine taking all weekend to create a one page LO. And, it was an easy one to boot! Anyway, I had an enjoyable weekend. Lighty and Chris treated me to breakfast for Mother's Day. The boys got me flip flops from Old Navy and Jules is going to buy me a fish of my choice for the pond. Chris helped me plant flowers on Saturday. I just had an all around good weekend. I think it was one of the best weekends in such a long time...relaxing, fun, and low stress.

Here's to migraine free days and lots of sunshine!

more from me...

I LOVE this photo that I took of my niece Amanda, her husband Carl and their little boy, Aiden.

I was playing with the settings on my camera. I took this photo of the old oak tree in our backyard. I just love the angle of the tree.

Here's to tired feet and four more days of the work week.

Monday Morning Blues

It's raining and damp and I want to stay home in my jammies all day and SCRAP. I can' off to school I go. How many more days until summer vacation?
So, this past weekend I went to my LSS and did a 24 hour crop...good times, good friends, and no sleep.

This LO is Lighty being a goofball and dork.

This is a new LO but an older photo of my sisters and I at a picnic. I just had to do the skull and crossbones look.

Here's to rainy Monday mornings and orange juice.
