Thank You So Much
Amber created this week's Verve sketch and I went "hmmmm...." when I saw the circles on the side panel. I pulled out a few things from my "to use later pile", embossed the background panel for a bit of texture and then got stuck on the two side circles on the sketch.
After some pondering, I decided to take some creative liberties with the sketch and subbed the flowers and leaves in for the circles. My final touch was the addition of a little red heart to the "U" to keep the rule of three in tact :) Hopefully this passes Amber's inspection ;)
The kids went for their first hour of school today - basically a head count day for the schools. Tomorrow is their first full day and it will be bitter sweet for me this year. Now that my kids are older, I was able to get more mommy/alone time this summer (aka: much needed introvert's recharging time so I don't turn into a grouchy mommy) which gave me a lot more energy to just enjoy having my kids all to myself. They are growing up soooo quickly...breaks my heart in some ways....but love watching them grow up and mature....times to treasure in my mommy heart :)
I'm bracing my self for the 0 to 100 ramp up in our schedule! Starting today, we have two mid-week soccer practices and a weekend game, piano lessons, the beginning of our weekly Bible Study, my teaching the grade 5/6 Sunday School class, running the before and after school daycare and a few things I'm sure I have forgotten to include. Glad it's a short first week as I am always exhausted by the time Friday night rolls around. Or maybe I'm just getting old LOL!
