Summer Crop!

The forum/website that I help out with, Piece of Scrap, is having a summer vacation crop.  We weren’t supposed to “leave” on our vacation until Monday, but the site owner and myself got a little impatient and started the crop off early with a few challenges for the weekend.  Come by and say hello and scrap with us this summer.  We are a friendly group, welcoming to every scrapbooker, no matter what your level is.  Digi, or paper scrapper, this is the place for you!

Dream Flight Launch

Tonight was the launch of the “Dream Flight” for the 2011-2012 school year.  Dream Flight is a bus decked out like a space shuttle that travels to all the elementary schools in the district with some hands on teaching for the 4th graders in the district.  Andrew loves everything about science so he was very excited to go to the launch.


And…there it goes….

I am now a member of the Piece of Scrap design team.  I’m going to try to get back to blogging, but be prepared to see a lot of scrapbook pages and challenges.  I will still try to post updates on our life in general.

December 23 – Ronnie gets a haircut

Ronnie had a horrible day today (well, in his mind anyway). He had to go to the groomers and get a bath and haircut. He was starting to look awfully scraggly, so it was time. He spent all afternoon/evening/night like this:

He is completely worn out after his long morning.
