One more for September

I didn't take a photo of Josh on his first day of school....tsk, tsk, tsk. How could that have possibly happened you ask? just the passing lane..

Night school has started and I'm in pure glee for 3 hours. I will have the upper hand on that camera of mine...

Here is a photo of the banner I made for the Caledonia Fall Fair. I've done quite a few things this year and on Saturday I will find out if the town likes my stuff....should be a fun day of corn dogs, dizzy bellies and smash up derby cars....and hopefully a ribbon or two!

Life Preservers layouts

I've been working on a few layouts with the August kit from Life Preservers, the alternate features Thrift Shop from October Afternoon, such lovely stuff! I have two layouts done and am working on another, I'll post that later.

This is the first full week of school. I'm trying to stay organized, so far so good. I pack a lunch for Josh every night so this year I have started something new to save some week night time. On Sunday night I pack all his lunches for the week, I have plastic containers to keep everything sorted, I have to put two cookies in a baggie every night so I might as well just spend a minute and do it 4 more times. Surprisingly enough it doesn't take long to pack 5 lunches, as its all the same stuff. The sandwich is the hard part because you don't want that to go bad but Josh doesn't eat them so I just pack some lunch meat and I have it in portion baggies in the freezer that I pull out each night. I'm liking this already. Now if I can just keep the fingers out of the box all week then I won't have a problem.

Feeling guilty....

Earlier tonight (well I guess last night...LOL) I got upset with Olivia because she was playing (aka-making a mess) with a bottle of green paint. She had paint on a favorite blanket, her shirt, all over herself and all over my bathroom. She hides it from me because she knows she is only allowed to use it in a controlled environment (aka-my scrap room and in her panties only!) She knows where I keep it all too, I'll have to hide it all again. I have tons of it as I use to folk art paint many moons ago, long before I discovered paper.

Then I feel terribly guilty for being upset when I see her asleep in my bed, so pretty and peaceful. Then I think of all the mothers who have lost their babies, and would give anything to have their babies make such a mess like this. Puts things into prospective a little's just a shirt, who cares! I did then and now I won't again.

Done! Well sort of...

Here you go Connie! I know you can't really tell, but there are houses and trees and a road painted least that what they tell me.

Can you tell Josh is bi-lingual? I guess we better start on the english home work again. They had fun, and our new floor will go in on Wednesday, so looking forward to a nice clean floor.

Thursday, September 2, 2010 a strange kind of way....

We have been walking on concrete floors in the basement for a few weeks now and before our new floor is layed next week I thought we should have some fun with it. What else can you do with such a boring floor? Paint it! Paint the floor not your body Josh.....all well, it's all fun.
