I had so much fun today at Sandy's house. I got to meet Carole, Debbie, Sandy & Kris. Carole is from The Bitten by the Bug 2 team. I could only stay for 5 hours, but I was able to get 4.5 cards done. We had a delicious lunch and got lots of lovin' from Buddy the cute cocker spaniel.
Carole made us all matching hats.
Isn't he cute? Katrina is in love with him. I knew she would be. She loves all dogs.
I'm still wearing my hat. I love it!
Thanks for a great afternoon girls!! I'll post my cards later. As soon as I got home, Kat had to add a little this and a little that to some of the cards. *sigh*
A few projects that I've been doing this week. I also have this week's BBTB2 card up. I'm so late this week. We were to use a rainbow from the Princess cart. I don't have that one, so I used Create A Critter (which I think is my new favorite cart).
and she's already upset. BUT, I have good news!!! The very last thing she did in lessons today was tread water for 6 seconds in 6 feet. She is so proud of herself. I wish I had gotten a picture of that.
Today she said:
"I'm lucky 5 times today because I can read, I can swim in 6 feet, I have pretty earrings, I can jump rope and I got my hair cut".
If you've ever seen Katrina's hair IRL, you know what a disaster it is. She FINALLY let me get it cut today. I would say that I was more of the lucky one.
Another summer and that means more swimming lessons. Trent has been brave and has done everything the instructor tells him. Kat, on the other hand, does not.
I have one of those kids that screams at the top of her lungs in a panic when her head has to go under water. The guests at the pool stop and look to see where the screaming is coming from.
Katrina pushes and tries to fight off the instructor. The guests at the pool continue looking around and find me, the one with the towel over her head in embarrassment and realize that I'm that screaming kid's mother.
When does this end? She's been in swimming lessons for 3 years (at least). She is obsessed with the 3 foot marker. If anyone tries to take her to the 4 foot marker, she panics. She thinks she can't float, swim, glide, etc at 4 feet. I can hear her screaming at the top of her lungs, "I can do it at 3 feet! Take me back to 3 feet!"
At Bitten by the Bug 2 this week, it was Reader's Choice. A reader asked us to do something from the Camp Out cart. I chose the curved fishie.
and OMGosh, I actually did a layout. It's been weeks. It felt kinda good. ;) This is new We R.
