Scrappygiraffe Kits August '07

I can't say enough good things about Crate Paper....it's delicious...and I've had fun creating layouts from this month's Crush line and the yummy embellishments that came with it!!

I wouldn't necessarily have called this "Cool Dudes" except that every time the boys saw this photo - that's what they said about it....and who am I scrapping for afterall...so that's what it became. (Cool Dudes will be appearing in Scrapbooking & Beyond in '09 sometime.....sorry to leave you hanging here.)

Sept. 5 (First Day of School)

It's the beginning of a new era for me I guess....Grades 4, 3 and 1. 3 kids in school all day - full days. I met some moms at the school today who were teary and sad....and I really don't get it. How can I be sad when my kids are so excited to go. I'd be sad if they wanted to and couldn't or didn't want to and had to....but when they're excited to go...it's a happy day for me too. In fact, I dropped them off at school, and kept walking (at my own pace, without a toddler to match steps with) and got a package in the mail, and talked to friends uptown and made it back in time to have a nice breakfast in peace before 10:00am....I think I could get used to this lifestyle. It may not last long though 'cause I have my resume in for an EA position (and also a subbing position) at our school so I better enjoy these days alone while I can.
