My 10 Year Old -

I am always very proud of my 10 year old son. But sometimes he still continues to amaze me at his quick grasp of mathematical concepts......

Like any 10 year old boy, he loves to play video games.  Fortunately for me, he also likes to play games that are slightly educational....for ex:  Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader.  However, he really likes to ask me the questions and I have long ago determined that I am NOT smarter than a 5th grade.    I wish I was but that show has stumped me far to many times for me to believe otherwise.The only questions I get right are the math ones.  Luckily for me since I am a math teacher. :)

Anyway, last night he asked me what median is.  He and I have just started to discuss probability and this was a new term to him.  And here is why I love his brain......after I gave him the definition, he did not ask me for an example.  Instead he gave ME an example!  How awesome is that?   It may not sound impressive, but after 20+ years in education, I haven't had that happen too often and my elementary child was the one to do it.  Made my day!  :)  It's the little things that make me happy.

Close to My Heart Consultant

I have finally done it!  Today, I have jumped into being a Close to My Heart Consultant!  I absolutely LOVE their products and really hope that this will get my creative energy flowing regularly again.  I have been attending a scrapbooking club of the month with a Close to My Heart consultant and she has really helped to awaken my scrapping mojo! 

As I get more familiar with the consultant thing, I will update my blog!  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about their products or if you are interested in testing some out at a party! 

Also, I will have more details coming soon about a scrapbooking monthly club to be held in Summit Hill, PA!

Happy Scrapping!

Monday - March 30th

March, in like a lion, out like a lamb.....what a's going out like a lion too! We had a nice hail storm yesterday and today is feels like January outside. I am sooooooooo ready for some warm weather.

And to top it off, my kids are slowly going through the stomach bug.....Mikey Saturday, Maggie today.....who's next????

Scrapping is going well. I was at a crop two weeks ago and got a bunch of pages done. Not as many as I would like of course, but I also did a star for my Aunt & Uncle's anniversary present. And that took more time than I would have liked. The place it was held at was AWESOME! Continuous food & drink....gourmet buffet.....unbelievabI can't wait for the next one in October. I wish I could afford to go to one a month! :)

Here are some photos from my weekend:

Hump Day!

Well, my computer is at the doctor's office! It had to stay overnight. Hopefully they will fix it, but if not, they do know they can get all my information off of it. THANK GOODNESS! Lesson to learn here....back up!

I completed all my challenges this week! I am so excited. Here is my layout for the survivor challenge of Tallyscrapper. I am very happy with how it turned out. It is the first layout I have ever done stitching on! I did the layout for my friend Lisa. The photos are of her son and father. She loved it!

Today has been a truly fun day.......can you hear my sarcasm! My desktop computer is in the process of crashing. I think the fan in it is going. My only hope that I will be able to get all my files & photos off of it. I have to call a commputer tech tomorrow. That was last night. Of course, I couldn't sleep b/c I couldn't stop thinking about the fact that I am an idiot and did not burn off everything sooner. I couldn't do anything today b/c I had to go to the dermatologist.....always fun for a redhead. Had two spots biopsied. I know what they are so I'm not worried about that.....I just have to hope that the biopsy removed them so I don't have to go back for more surgery. Again...FUN! ARGGGGGGHHHHH!!!

Okay, the upside. I have been doing some scrapping lately. I got three pages done this weekend and I am so excited. I signed up for some challenges and although I am way to busy they are helping me get some pages done!! One more to go tomorrow!

Here are two of them........

TOMORROW is DDAY! The kids go back to school! They are so excited! Although I am looking forward to some free time every morning, I am bummed that it is starting so soon. There still seems to be so much I wanted to do with them this summer. We didn't get to the zoo, the museum, Sesame Place or any real amusement park! Ah well, we did get to the beach and camping and the lake a lot!

Today will be busy. I want to get their stuff ready for tomorrow, Mikey has football pictures. We are supposed to go out to eat with my dad, stop & get school shoes (I have yet to do ANY shopping!). Plus I want to take them minigolfing as a last hurrah.

Time to get started.......
