That's good that you haven't had to worry about watching the kids the whole time they were gone. I bet your sister was glad you could help out. It's nice when your family is close.

It is great to have everyone so close. My bf offered to keep the kids too, so it hasn't been that bad. I miss talking to them everyday. Just a few to go. It is raining here. Nicko was up early and the bus came at 6:35 as usual. Lucas is still sound asleep. Thomas starts next week.

I hope to have some craft time today, I am not sure if I have to get my niece. She has a kindergarten meeting today. My sister is going but has to get back to work. She was going to try to get her friend to get her so I don't have to drag Lucas everywhere.

DD2's bus came a little early. A few minutes before 6:30. Trying to get her up and going in the morning is a chore!

I hope Lucas is feeling better today. Strep is no fun. Is Thomas excited to be going back to school? Katrina has already had her first week of school. She really likes her classes.

Is her bus supposed to come that early? We plan on 6:35 so it was right on schedule. Thomas is excited he starts next Tuesday. Lucas is a little better, we are heading to see his classroom at 3, after all the kids are gone.

Unfortunately it is supposed to arrive at 6:30 and it was several minutes early but we were outside waiting already.

Glad Thomas is excited about his sophomore year! Does he know where he wants to transfer to yet? Is he still working at Dunkin?

Don't you hate all the paperwork on the first day of school?

Well he has all year to think about what he wants to do and where he wants to go. That's good he is still working. Katrina said she tried to find a job on campus but they all have specific requirements. I think they hire a lot of grad students.

Last year she worked at the barn. Work study wasn't a problem. I guess this school it is. I'll tell her to try the bookstore.

They are home safe! She took lots of pictures, I looked at them quickly. They need to rest. The little kodak easy share 5x we gave her takes some decent pictures.

6 hours, so they basically woke up at 10pm our time and got home at 4pm the next day. They are so happy to be home. 3 weeks is a little too long even when you are having a great time!

She doesn't use a computer, I will do the snapfish offer! She wants 4 copies of things, she needs to send some back.

Did you do it yet, how much is the shipping?

That's a long day!

No, I haven't ordered an yet. In the past when I have with Shutterfly, I think shipping was around $5 maybe could be $7. IDK


But it is is still way cheaper than paying per print and shipping on top of that.


The offer says you can use it as much as you want. I didn't read the rules but if you can order 99 prints, then the next day order 99 prints etc. that would be a good.

Our neighborhood has a family party at our little neighborhood park. That's at 4:00. The theme is Margarittaville so I am bringing a tropical fruit type, ambrosia-like salad.

Otherwise no big plans!


How about you?

We have nothing today and then tomorrow I am going to Vermont with my parents. We have a Memorial Service for my bil's mother. We are bringing their kids. My sister and bil went up last night.

Lucas wants to go to karate, but we might skip it. I need to buy my nephew some pants. And maybe shoes for my niece

Hi Pia!

How was your week?


I hope your BIL is doing ok after the loss of his mom.


DS caught a bad cold. We took them to see Disney on Ice last night. That was actually fun. We haven't done Disney on Ice since DD2 was a baby! She is going to be 15 in October.


Nothing else going on.

Nancy,
I got the picture thanks, I just have had a few crazy days. Work is so busy, the first assignments are due and the students are frantic. Then we started all activities at home, great fun!

My sister and bil are doing ok. His mother had been very sick with cancer.

I love Disney on Ice! My Lucas got scared when he was 2 and we haven't been back. Maybe we will try again.

I love the Lilo page you made. I am working on my single page layout. I need to cut letters on the cricut.

I am glad you like you Lilo page. Lilo is cute!

Yep, beginning of school gets crazy. All the activities start again. It must be busy at work when the students have their first assignments due. Especially the new students!


That is so sad she had cancer. A friend of mine emailed a month ago that his wife died of cancer. She was only 47! She was diagnosed last September with stage 4 lung cancer.

His mother had lung cancer as well. We just got home from a wake for dh's neighbor. He had alzheimers and was getting worse.

We had a good day before that. We had a bday party for my father, he turns 70 tomorrow. He had a bbq at his house, nothing fancy which he enjoys. I went to a yard sale at the lss to help a few friends. I only spent $3.50 on stamsp for my niece. So I am pretty happy not to add to my huge amounts of stuff. Now it is just getting ready for the week. I am only working Monday and Thursday so it will be good!

Your parents are young! My dad will be 83 at the end of October.

A two day work week, SCORE! I hope you can get a lot done and have some time to take a break. You are always so busy!


I tried to work on a scrap page today. I got most of it done. I hope I can finish it tomorrow.

I need to figure out what I want to do with my extra day off. It is my birthday! I have dinner plans that I wouldn't get home for if I worked. This is a crazy week with karate, scouts, open houses, dr. visits etc. Not sure how we will get it all done. I finished the sbps so I didn't get to my own stuff. Now I have to work on borders for my swaps

Happy Birthday!

Did you decide what you are going to do?

We both have September birthdays! Mine was 9/1

I dug out another Disney LO from a swap. That box has been out since I scored on finding The Cars LO. I need to work on it a little more. I feel like it is missing something! I need to start going through these swap lo's!

Happy belated birthday! On Weds I really enjoyed the quiet house. Then I did a few errands and had a great dinner with friends.

I met Cath who does this blog Moxie Fab World She is super nice!

It was a good day. My niece had her party yesterday, it was a tea party. She had way too many kids for me, but she invited everyone.

Don't pass out but I was looking for ideas and remembered this site. So I popped in to say hello. I really miss reading about how every-1 is doing. I finally signed up for one swap. Christmas tags. I'm doing okay.
The cool weather is moving in too fast.
My big project right now is helping put together a 12 x 12 scrapbook on the Chesterfield County Fair for them. I sure wish I knew how to make border better. I have a sizzex so I might figure that out.I will pop in more often to see how everybody is doing. Hugs to all Judy

Those tea parties are cute. How old is your niece?

We went oto see DD at school. It was family weekend and we brought her bike down. We didn't have room the first time!

Hey Judy! Stop by and chat with us!

Nancy, sounds like a good weekend. We went here today
Monkey Trunks Extreme. It was a BLAST! Of course it was raining the whole time and we were soaked at the end, but it was still huge fun.

My niece is 6 now. My oldest niece will be 21 in January. Then Thomas is 19, Nicko 13, my nephew will be 9 in Oct, then Lucas turns 8 in Dec and the youngest niece is 6. Thom has 3 nieces ranging in age 14-17.

Cool! Did you go on any zip lines? I hate the rain though.

I have done a zip line once.
