I guess it's time for an update!!

Almost a week has flown by since my last post!! I am really getting bad about updating!!

Nothing too exciting this week. I am working on organizing the toys and getting Jack's room painted. I was on a roll yesterday until I ran out of paint! I also managed to bust the handle right off of the roller! Have I ever said how much I dislike painting?

Jack did good at school on Tuesday! He said they had ice cream for snack, yum!!! I guess I'd love school if I could have ice cream for snack! Today should be a good day for him too! He has speech therapy this morning as well. Last week we started working on his "f"s. He usually uses p's for f's. Tricky sound!

Macy is doing good at school too! She is just about done with all of her upper and lower case recognition. It's funny, she knows them but still will not write her name correctly. She still uses all capitals even after having to do tracer pages for homework since the beginning of the school year! I tell her every morning on the way to school to make sure she writes it the proper way. She just grumbles!

Not too many plans for this weekend. My cousin is getting remarried on Saturday, so we have that. Chris has to work the majority of the weekend. We may try and do something Sunday afternoon as long as the weather permits. I think it's supposed to get back to fall like temps again. I've had enough of this almost 90 degree weather in the fall!

Haven't had much mojo lately. Hoping it comes back soon! I got the October ILove2Create kit yesterday. It is so pretty, filled with American Crafts goodness and a neat technique! I have to work on that tonight!

Here are 2 layouts that I did this week. Can you believe I did both of them in the same day? One while Jack was at preschool and the other after they went to bed!!





Have a great weekend!! Any fun plans?

Melonie said...

Ok these are both awesome. The camping LO is perfection on a page and I love the bright colors and the arrow with the cutout for journaling on the other. Girl your work just rocks!

Didi said...

Good stuff! I love the angles in the camping one. 2 in one day...I am SO jealous! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Maureen said...

Wow! Love the colorful layouts!!! They are wonderful!

Jen said...

Love layouts ROCK! My DS, who's in first grade, had the same problem with uppercase and lowercase. He knew the difference but always wrote in all caps through Kindergarten. I've practiced and practiced with him and he's finally writing lowercase when he's supposed to. I think it was more of a habit (and laziness) than anything! Don't worry, she'll get it!

Hi Rachael, love the layouts. The journal frame/arrow is rockin!
We do the speech therapy thing with DD#3, we just started a dis fluency group to help her with her stutter (which is mild but can develop into more if left). Hope the painting goes more smoothly and its finished soon :)
