Wow, has it been a week...and not a good one either. My grandmother, Vera Louise Yielding, died last Saturday night. She had been unresponsive since Wednesday. We were able to stay with her most of the day Saturday. With all the family turmoil we have been having, I am truly thankful we were able to have that time with her to say good-bye. I'll miss you Grandmother!
I have also been working on more design team lay-outs with the September Kit from
Scrapbookers The kit is totally awesome. Nicole has such great taste. If you haven't come by the clubhouse yet, please do so. Everyone there is so nice and welcoming and you won't find a better on-line store to order from. Nicole really goes out of her way to make sure her customers are completely satisfied!
I finally did it! I traded in my Land Rover for a Dodge Durango. I totally love it. It better suits my needs and I am more comfortable driving it. It is safer that the Land Rover and has 3rd row seating. Although I definitely miss my Land Rover, I am happy I traded for the Durango. Here are those lay-outs I have been working on! Enjoy!

Today is Carley's first day of kindergarten. She was nervous and excited all at the same time. She is such a big girl! It's just me that's not ready for this. She has a great teacher that we know personally, which is a comfort to me. She goes to church with a little girl in her class and made a new friend this morning when I dropped her off. I know she is having a great day and will do just fine. It's just me, I'm worried about. It's been unbelievably quiet without her and I feel lost. But, this is part of it and the first step in letting her go be her own little person without me. Here is her picture from this morning:
You can bet I'll be waiting outside by the mailbox to give her a great big hug when she gets off the school bus. Just two hours til then....
