First Day

What a bittersweet day.  After school everyone gave a few highlights:

Christian had a hot dog and milk for lunch.
I responded with: "Is that all you ate??"
CG: "Oh and some apples mom, some apples too." {Yeah, right.}

Sydnee saw a friend from 1st grade that has returned to her school for 4th grade.  One of her teachers was grumpy, but it wasn't the teacher that she thought was going to be grumpy.  That one was really, really nice.

Ella has the best teacher, "evah".  And she has to stay late at school on Wednesday, until 3:20.  She is also getting a locker on Wednesday.

My highlight was walking to the bus stop at the end of the day and seeing them get off the bus.  I know it is a simple thing, but something that I love.  We shared some Twizzlers on the walk home.

My Bix 7 {The Paperlife Printables}

Last Friday night, I participated in a crop.  I wasn't working on anything for work, or needed items for any design team.  I was just scrapping to scrap; for me, myself, and I.
I got 7 pages done.
I call it my Bix 7 {no, I did not run the race...this year.}
So in honor of the Bix 7 race {popular 7 mile race in the QCA} that was held on Saturday.  I will be sharing 7 layouts over the next couple days.  Here is 1 of 7 layouts!  This was created with Paperlife Printables Just Beachy Collection. I loved printing out the patterned paper and the paper embellishments.  This was a first for me, and I loved it!  So easy, I don't know what took me so long to take the jump into digital hybrid.  Try it out! I think Amy has some freebies on her blog here. Just choose your designs, print, create, and smile.  Thanks for looking.

You Can't Handle The Truth!

I had an experience in June that was really not fun, not fun at all.  To make a long story short, I was being sued for an accident that I was in 7 years ago.  This finally went to trial mid-June.  Wow. 3 days of one long Seinfeld episode: a trial about NOTHING!!
I was so grateful for my families' support during this time.  Craig kept the home running with all the kids.  My sister came to court with me during the trial, and several family members came from far away to see me and show their love. I stayed with my SIL during the 3-day trial, and she was such a blessing to me.  My nephews were also there and they kept my nerves calm with some humor.  Before the first day of the trial, we were quoting the Jim Carrey movie; Liar, Liar courtroom scenes.  They had me laughing so hard.  And my nephews also suggested that the day I took the stand I needed to channel Jack Nicholson's character from A Few Good Men:
Even though this experience did not turn out in the best way.  I am grateful for all those that 'had my back' and helped me through it, especially the humor.  Thanks everyone.
