Surprise!

I'm back!  Wow, I feel like I've been gone a loooong time!  I guess I ended up taking almost the entire summer off from blogging.  I hadn't planned things that way, but that's how it worked out.  At the start of the summer, I did have 2 goals.  1) To spend as much time with my little munchkins as possible before both of them were in school full time.  2) To try to get a good fitness routine going.  To be honest, I am perfectly happy spending hours and hours on my computer: scrapping, blog-hopping, just surfing around.   But that also seems to keep me spending hours and hours sitting on my butt, and too tired at the end of the day to exercise.  So, anyway.  I got moving, and spent lots of time with the munchkins.  And it was great!!!  But, I did miss my time blogging and blog-hopping.  Now that these two:

are back in school, I'm planning (hoping) to get back in the swing of  blogging.  It might not ever be as regular as it was in the past, but I don't think I'll be missing 2 months.  ha!  No promises, though.  I'm taking day classes at BYU for the first time in 10 years, and I'll admit I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed.  The past few years of classes, I've taken night classes.  Campus is always less busy at night, and there isn't quite so much going on to overstimulate my poor brain.  Anyway. 

I have worked on some projects over the summer.  Not a ton, but I'll be sharing them over the next little while.  And you have to know that I'm itching to work with paper and glue again, too!  What a perfect time for Leigh Ann to have several new releases of her Perfect Presentation templates: a Tall Gable Box and a Mini Cake Stand.  Now, I've seen these templates and they are fabulous.  I haven't worked with them yet, but I've got a long weekend ahead of me, so I'm hoping like crazy to fit some crafting time in.

It's really good to see you blogging again. I've missed visiting. I do understand about priorities though.

So are the fingers your kids are holding up mean what grade thier in? What a great view from your house you have. We have mountains where we live but none quite that big.

Good luck with your day class. I'm sure you'll get back in the hang of it soon.

Hi Susan! Yes, they are in 4th and 1st grades. My son just did that little pose on his own (after hiding from the camera most of the morning), and I thought it turned out cool, so I actually asked my daughter to do it, too ;)

Rebecca, so glad to see you back...I have missed you! Great pictures of the kidlets! I had planned on going back to school this fall, but it didn't happen; I just can't seem to bite the bullet.

You've definitely been missed. We have so much in common. I took night classes for years and haven't taken a class in about 9 years now (since my first child was born) and my kids are in 1st and 4th grade.
