Summer Time

Okay, so I am completely ready for summer to come to a close. I've just been going nonstop with Hannah and all the activities in which we are participating. I feel like I haven't had a chance to just enjoy my kids. I'm frustrating and cranky and ready for a vacation. Of course, our trip to the beach is coming up in ONE MONTH ~ the countdown has begun. I'm ready.

Anyway, Hannah is all of four years old, and her birthday isn't until next week.. One minute she is my best friend and the next, I'm ready to wring her neck. She's both sweet and sassy causing much distress to my need for balance throughout the day. We are still having major bedtime issues, but I am praying that all changes when our living situation does. Only a couple more months until we are a family of four for the first time in our lives.

As our playgroup comes to a close, we are trying to find things to do. Today we had a Pajama Party. I cannot wait to create those LOs!

Anyway, I have been asked to be on another Creative Team. I'm starting to feel a bit overwhelmed, but now I have a creative outlet that helps me release stress. I am proud to be a member of Karla's Kaleidscope Designs. I'm eager to start working with her materials!

Okay here are my latest LOs. They are my first with Traci's kits.
