Day 186, Wednesday, July 5, 2017

I love these photos of the Clark Family Farm.  I took these pictures in September of  2012.

Happy 4th of July!  We started packing for Hawaii!

Day 184, Monday, July 3, 2017

I think someone is enjoying their Starbuck's!

Day 183, Sunday, July 2, 2017

Several times a year, I back up my photos to an external hard drive.

Jim and I went to watch this artist paint this huge canvas with spray paint.

Day 181, Friday, June 30, 2017

Since I have re-organized my scrap cave, I have been doing a lot of pages. This one is from 2011 when we went to the balloon glow.

Day 180, Thursday, June 29, 2017

I got my Africa badge today!

Day 179, Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Coco emptied the toy basket looking for the bone.  He couldn't reach the bottom where the bone was.  He tried twice and coughed each time because he was cutting off his air.  I helped him get the bone he wanted.

Day 178, Tuesday, June 27, 2017

All of those containers with the post-it notes...were almost full of layouts.  I had to stop and file them in my scrapbooks, today, because the 2012 container would not hold another sheet of paper.

Day 177, Monday, June 26, 2017

I went to see my mom today.  I took her outside because it was such a beautiful day.  I also brought her raspberry dole whip.  I asked her what her favorite flavor of ice cream was and she said chocolate!  Without skipping a beat.  But she enjoyed every bite of that raspberry!

Day 176, Sunday, June 25, 2017

Jim and Nate are outside checking out the tomato plants.

Day 175, Saturday, June 24, 2017

This picture looks like a hot mess, but it really isn't.  If you look at one of six squares, you will see how my scrap cave is not organized.  I have a "U" shape for my desk and I am thinking I will love it.  

Day 174, Friday, June 23, 2017

Yep, that's my dog, sitting on the couch, where he isn't supposed to be.  He is not used to Nate being home and taking his photo...he was busted for being on the couch.

Day 173, Thursday, June 22, 2017

I had to go to my mom's care plan meeting.  I stopped at the Nacho Mama food truck for lunch!  Yummy grilled cheese with bacon!

Day 172, Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Last night, I started the re-organization of the scrap cave.  Unfortunately, it has to spill into the family room!

Day 171, Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Coco and I enjoyed our walk this morning.  He is such a good boy when we go for a walk.

Day 170, Monday, June 19, 2017

We booked our trip to the Hawaii Islands.  This is Maui and the Road to Hana is one of the activities we will be doing.  I can't wait until July 8!

Day 169, Sunday, June 18, 2017

Jim and I worked out in the garage moving things around this morning.  This evening, we had a family dinner with steaks!  My dad is doing pretty good!  Happy Father's Day to Pop, Jim and Rob!

Day 168, Saturday, June 17, 2017

I borrowed Rob's truck to move Nate's stuff.  I had to back this truck up down a one-way alley.  I did pretty good for someone who doesn't back up well!

Day 167, Friday, June 16, 2017

Coco was very happy to see the UPS man today.

Day 166, Thursday, June 15, 2017

Yesterday and today, Nate and I went to his house to start moving his things back to our house.  This was all the food we brought with us.

There's my handsome boy who just got home from the groomer!

Day 164, June 13, 2017

More mixed media inspiration!

Day 163, Monday, June 12, 2017

We had our card swap last Monday, but I didn't get the picture taken until today.  These are the cards that my friends and I made.

Day 162, Sunday, June 11, 2017

I didn't know there were snapple facts on the individual packets until just now.

Day 161, Saturday, June 10, 2017

Nate came to stay with us while he recuperates from a lung biopsy.  We had to go to his house to let his dog out and feed her.

Day 160, Friday, June 9, 2017

I made new files for next school year.  Josh and Keeley will be right next to each other.

Day 159, Thursday, June 8, 2017

This is me to a T.

Day 158, Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Chik Fil-A is a good choice for lunch because they has frosted lemonade!

Day 157, Tuesday, June 6, 2017

We went to Moe'w for lunch!  Taco Tuesday is always a good idea.

Day 156, Monday, June 5, 2017

My fitbit tracks my sleep every night, if i remember to turn it on.  This was a pretty good night for me.

Day 155, Sunday, June 4, 2017

We went on the Sculpture Walk this morning.  It was pretty hot, but we still enjoyed the time spent looking at new placements as well as seeing the same ones from last year.

Day 154, Saturday, June 3, 2017

I love our day lilies.

Day 153, Friday, June 2, 2017

This hosta almost touches the fence between our yard and the neighbors.  You can see how far it reaches out of the flower bed.

Day 152, Thursday, June 1, 2017

Cindy got here certificate for 25 years.  I made her sit on the "Photo Bench" where all the students have to sit for pictures.

Day 151, Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Sue was still working in her room.  She came to the office to chat with us.  We started talking about her going to the beach next week.  There is a group of teachers who go every year and most of the time they send us a postcard.  I have kept them in my desk drawer for years.

Day 150, Tuesday, May 30, 2017

I resisted buying this Tim Holtz alphabet.  But I am go happy I got it now.  I have been using this a lot on my scrapbook pages.  It is 1 inch tall and there are multiple letters, so it is easy to spell out words all at once.

Day 149, Monday, May 29, 2017

Today is Memorial Day.  I found this picture and thought it was pretty cool.

Day 148, Sunday, May 28, 2017

This rose is from a plant that my boss gave me last year.  We planted it in the ground last fall and much to our surprise it bloomed!

Day 147, Saturday, May 27, 2017

I completed my Week In The Life album.  This is an Ali Edwards project, even though I didn't use her products.  I did use an album I had already constructed from the Button Farm.

Day 146, Friday, May 26, 2017

We took up the entire patio at BWW's this afternoon.  The students left for the school year at 11:30 am.  We ate lunch with our whole staff.

Day 145, Thursday, May 25, 2017

I have been trying to stamp some flowers with my Misti tool.  These are not too bad, but I am not happy with the ink colors.  I will keep trying.

Day 144, Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Our hosta's seem to be getting unbelievably huge this year.

Day 143, Tuesday, May 23, 2017

My little guy just loves to sit or lay by me.  He doesn't stay long, sometimes as he gets to hot, but he is sure to visit when he wants to.  Love him to pieces.

Day 142, Monday, May 22, 2017

We had a retirement dinner this evening for the teachers who are leaving us at the end of this year.  We will miss all of them and hope they come back to see us when they can!

Day 141, Sunday, May 21, 2017

The dust has officially kicked up in the corn fields around my brothers house.

Day 140, Saturday, May 20, 2017

Andy had Kai out for a walk today.  He is getting so big and doing really great!  Love my nephew and great nephew!

Day 139, Friday, May 19, 2017

One of our teachers, who is retiring this year, put this on her bulletin board outside her room in the hallway.  It is about 4 feet by 8 feet.  I guess we know how she feels!  LOL

Day 138, Thursday, May 18, 2017

Got this card today from our staff.

Day 137, Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Our kindergarten students study the life cycle of the butterfly.  It is always a big day when they get to release them.
