Here is my latest creation. I love how the collage of photos turned out on this one. Besides it is so fun of Sara showing off her new monkey bar skills.
We are sitting enjoying tornado like winds and rain again today. With the heat index at 105 it is a killer of a day!

Up to today

Well my class is flying along with 2 lessons down and 4 to go. Here is a layout from my class #2 with hand drawn title and doodled embellishments. The photos are from a huge stack taken last summer at my brother’s beautiful wedding. I have been pleased with how the whole stack has been turning out.
Not much planned for the weekend but the week has been busy with extra fun activities with the girls. We have done a trip to the zoo, art classes Tuesday and Thursday, a water fun play day and lunch with new friends from the Y, and a bid day today with library and pool time. I have to say I was pretty proud when my baby Lori passed her swimming test to be able to go down the big slide today. She was the smallest one running up those steps to slide down! And she could have done it all day! Even a little boy asked “Hey did she get a green wrist band?” “Yep.” “Wow, that’s amazing!” I am so proud of her. She had to swim a full lap doing any stroke and tread water for a full minute. Go Lori!

Off and running!

Well we got a new bike for Miss. Sara and now the mission is to ride the sucker. Bless her heart she has the balance of her Dad so it is not going very well. Lori on the other hand would have it if she would let me let go. She currently is holding on with a death grip. We’ll get it these two stick with it which is awesome.
Week one of summer down. First round of swim lessons. My warm up class for Oodles of Doodles up and running. My first on-line chat and lots of fun. This is going to be a whirl-wind, bang-up summer. Just perfect!

So this is not a photo from today but it is the assignment I am giving myself today and that is to add a photo to a post to see if I can make it work. I t is a photo from about two weeks ago right before the dance recital. Sara, Lori, Mom and I went to the library and park after we picked up Sara from school. It was a gorgeous day for the park and Sara was learning and showing off some new tricks on the monkey bars.

After the weather we have had the past couple days (tornadoes) I am wishing it looked like this again!
