Well…things have been crazy around here. We finished school on Friday, May 9th. Zachary told me today that he feels like he should be doing more in the mornings. He has been in school for almost a straight 180 days! We only took a week off for Christmas and weekends. We will be starting up again on August 25th. Zachary will be in 7th grade and Melody will be starting Pre-K. I am sure it will be super easy with her as she knows so much already. Not even four and she writes her name, can count to 50, knows her alphabet by sight and sound, can tell you all kinds of things you never would think a three year old would even care about! She has become a bit of a problem lately though..as she is getting older and showing me her independence. Zachary is great with her though. When we go to the playground he stays with Melody and I stay with Kylie and they have a great time. I have a ton of photos to post but just haven’t had the time yet to get them onto here. Hopefully soon!!
I have been busy on the weekends working vendor fairs and scrapbooking events. I have one actually in about 11 hours from now! It is raining outside and it stinks..hopefully that will end before I get ready to leave in the morning. I am also working on a fundraiser called Scrapping for Soldiers on June 14th and I have gotten a bunch of donations so far but I am still working on a few more. I just sent out 20 letters in the mail the other day and the only one I have heard back from is McDonalds. They are actually doing a fundraiser on Tuesday night for the soldiers so the manager asked me to come down to hand out some flyers for my event and also to talk to her about what she can do to help out for my Scrapping for Soldiers event. I was even in the paper on April 28th talking about this event! I was so excited! I have never been quoted in the paper before!
I have also found out in the past few weeks that we will be moving soon. There is finally a three bedroom apartment in our complex that opened up and now we are just waiting for the maintenance people to go in and repaint and fix any problems from the last people who lived there and then we can move in. What kills me about this is we are really only moving about 100 feet from our front door now! I am at a loss as to what to do with our stuff in the mean time though. I did start packing some items but we don’t have a place to store them unless we put them in the basement..which is just a pain because that just means more stairs to climb to get them back out! We will have three bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms. Which will be fabulous as we only have 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom right now. I think once we are settled in I will start trying to potty train Kylie. She has interest in undies already so I might as well try soon right!?
Also going on is that I have left Top Line Creations and signed up with Close to My Heart. Acrylic stamps and scrapbooking papers and albums. All beautiful products. I have a bunch of stuff for fairs and parties all ready in my head..lol. I just have to finish up getting the things I have in my head made for people to actually see in person! If only I had an extra 20 hours a day! I am hoping that once we move I will set up an area to just work on my Scrapbooking items. I have also been working on my cards so things are never dull here!!
I am headed to bed now. It is almost 1am and I have to get up and ready for my vendor fair/Scrap for a Cure tomorrow so I need to get some rest.
Good night and God Bless!
