August 05 - August 11, 2013 | Week 32
Happy days are here...
This week I worked with the new My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste Collection, specifically the "Presh" goodies. I am in control of the My Mind's Eye Blog today, so jump on over there to see more right HERE.
With lots to include for the first half of the week, I went with a 4x6 summary card. I am finding that a lot easier than to try to fit my story on a few of the 3x4 cards. Not only does that give me the room to add extra pictures and memorabilia, but it is kind of nice to have some extra 3x4 slots to just have fun with by using filler cards too.
The first half of the week brought the kids' final prize for the Summer Reading Program at the library. All of their hard work paid off. They were finally able to pick out a book of their choice. Perfect! We also had some snuggles on the couch, a new final decision was made on the style of our new C-table, and we had a family trip to Progressive Field to watch the Tigers beat the Indians in the 14th inning. The kids were in heaven the whole time. I mean, who wouldn't with the Tigers and endless junk food at your fingertip?! Sam got tired towards the end, and when that boy is done, he knows he is done. He is ready to go home and sleep. Lucky for us, he was a trooper and stuck it out.
The second half of the week we had a little boy making his birthday wish list, swimming with lots of floaties, a pretty little kitten who attended a birthday party, and the annual Jaquet family reunion.
