I know I have said at least HALF of THIS during the times I have been a mom...

In today's time of technological advancement, that there are actual villages that do not even have pottable water! How is that? Our school (as well as the other nine schools in our group) had a Walk-A-Thon to help raise money for a "play pump"... haven't heard of it! Well, they install a merry-go-round in the yard, and every rotation of the "toy" creates a pump to draw water out from beneath the ground and sends it to a treatment center... so a little play creates usable water for this little village to have! It is just amazing to me!
There is an armored truck coming to pick up the donations... I will let you know how much we collected and then we should also know how much was collected by all the schools combined! Just Cool!

OK, so little man is stuck hanging out all afternoon waiting for big sis to finish her different after school activities. So... while we kicked back yesterday, he pulls out my sunglasses and says... this is what old people look like when they wear glasses! Where does he get this stuff?
You probably will get tired of hearing/seeing about running, but I am a dorky photo mom, and can't help it. Besides... caught E in good form yesterday... this is after about FOUR miles of running! Wanted them to have a little artsy feel... I have a layout in mind for these photos... titled "You run like a girl... and that rocks!" Thanks to a layout from SB etc!
Then... once again, waiting for big sis, I got a series of photos. T thought he would get E's bag, so she could cool off... Then he just went into "boy zone!" Layout to come titled, "down time!"
Took this one on the way to school... Quite blinding that early on... but so thought provoking!
Now to find the time to scrap!

Got some scrappy ideas going... Now to find the time! I gave myself a huge "relief" the other day, and just decided on some things! Man, it feels good to now I am free of that! Will update later! Nothing life altering or changing... just need to make the contacts first!

I remember CLEARLY watching it on TV. My precious 7th graders watching with me in horror as the 2nd tower is hit. Trying to give them comfort at the confusion no one was understanding. All I wanted to do was to get my family close. But you know what... we are strong! I truly believe that! We are strong people, we are a strong nation! I know that we are stronger now than we were!
God Bless America... and prayers to those that were lost or are living without their loved ones!

OMG... I haven't scrapped in almost TWO months! With back to school gifts, projects, and clients, I haven't been able to scrap in ages! So... I hunkered down in my studio and got busy!
