I can't believe that school is back in. I really didn't want the school break to be over.
On Friday of last week, we decided to do some cross-border shopping. Then we decided to stay over night just for something different to do. We had a wonderful time, and the boys were into shopping (for the most part.) They all had things that they were looking for. It worked out perfectly for me because they all went off to the computer/video stores, leaving me to shop in peace. After a very filling dinner of Olive Garden, we went back to the hotel to try and catch some highlights of the world cup junior game.
What I loved most about the trip is that two of the boys are now at an age where we can relate as adults. It was so nice just to watch the interactions going on and really appreciate the growth in my boys lately. They are really becoming fine young men. I'm so proud of them.
As soon as we got home on Saturday I jumped on-line to participate in an on-line crop. (that's where a bunch of people scrap in their own homes at the same time, completing challenges that have been posted on the web site, and chatting with each other.) I managed to get quite a bit done over the next day and a half (inspite of a migraine) and am happy to say that I've found my scrapping mojo again.
Here's some of my completed challenges:
This one was my favorite. We were only allowed to use white cardstock. Nothing else, except ink, chalk, and the like. The red heart was cut out from white cardstock and stamped with red ink.
