I just ran my very first 5K. And just to let you know I'm not a runner. I'm a FAST walker but not a runner. My husband and I decided to try it out. Two of my sisters were running it so I thought I'd give it a try too. I usually walk 5-7 miles 4-5 days a week so I thought I'd be OK. I'm excited to say I came in 2nd place in my age group (there probably wasn't very many in that group Ha, Ha!) One of my sisters came in 3rd place in her age group too. We had fun and they gave out a ton of prizes. Maybe next year we will get our kids in on this one. My sister took most of the pics so I will have to wait to post more of those.
So overall I thought it was fun and a good way to spend a Saturday morning.

Primary Fun.

Well every Saturday night I sit at my computer and get my stuff ready for singing time with our Primary kids on Sunday. I make a ton of visuals and try to make it fun. We are learning one song called Follow the Prophet (it has 9 verses-holy cow) We have learned it almost perfect so as a reward to sing it perfectly I got a huge box of rope licorice and tied it together to form a long rope or rod (hold to the rod) and as they walk around and sing they will hold signs that have prophets names, so as to follow the prophets. Then afterwards I will cut off a piece of the licorice for each child. I try to make it fun while they are learning too.
My friend from Texas who is a digital scrapbook designer, Krystal Hartley just made a kit that is perfect for primary. I made this cute header with the kit.  So if you are needing some fun graphics go check her out at The Sweet Shoppe. The direct link to this kit is here "BigKidsChurch"

Well off to Costco to get more ink so I can be Totally and Completely DONE! I used Meredith Cardall's kits for the whole book. Love her. The title page is below this post and there is another post with lots of orange pages below that are also part of the book.

Teacher gift

Well I started a scrapbook as a teacher gift for my son's second grade teacher. We have three weeks left so I need to get in gear. Here is the first page. I'll post the others as I get them done. I used one of the newest kits from Meredith Cardall called Beach Cottage. It's a colab kit at Elemental Scraps. I'm going to use it to scrap a bunch of my beachy San Diego pics too.
