Blast from the Past

Over the weekend I attended my 30th (yes I said 30th) High School Reunion. I have never even been to one until now. It was great seeing friends I hadn't seen for thirty years. So wierd how once you saw their name and looked at their face it all came back to you. No one changed so much that you couldn't tell who they were. I also helped with a fun Flash Mob dance that we had been rehearsing for the last couple of months with a small group of Pirates (that's our mascot- pretty cool, huh?) I dragged my husband along with me and since they had the big rivalry game (BYU/UTAH) the same night they had a TV for those die hard football fans- of which my husband is one. So at least he was intertained watching the game while I danced and talked, etc. Unfortunely the game was a blowout and his team lost. They even raffled off a Y and U football helmet. Fun times!
Here's a few more pics.

Some more Back to School Digital Crafts

Well I usually make my kids personalized back to school items, like backpack tags, teacher welcome back gifts,and my fun and easy standby Customized Composition Notebooks. This year I made a notebook for my daughter with the cute kit from Meredith Cardall called "Sunshine on a Cloudy Day" and the tutorial is on her blog HERE, I then realized that I told my niece last year when she saw the one I made my daughter that I would make one for her. Well better late than never I guess. Now I need to make some for my sons too.

Back to School Bunch

My kids went back to school this week. I think they are glad to have more structure in their days and to start using their brains again. Now I just need to get myself back into some structured days without entertaining kids.
I told my boys I was going to walk to school with them like I always do so I can get pictures of them and Josh said "Oh Mom, do you have to walk with us?" He's a sixth grader you know and those kind of things embarrass him. I walked with them and took their pictures anyway.
Nick actually liked me being there. But he soon found his friends and he forgot all about me. And that's the way it should be.
