Going for a bike ride

Well, I hope you've all had a wonderful week!  It's starting to feel like fall here.  When the kiddos have been getting on the bus in the morning it's been 55 degrees....perfect weather for running!  Saturday was too cold, though.  My son's football team had an 8 a.m. game, which meant 7 a.m. practice.  It was 36 degrees!!!  Hot chocolate weather, only I didn't pack any hot chocolate.  Anyway, on to my page.  This is from the day my kiddos finally mastered the art of bike riding.  Yes, I kind of feel like a bad mom admitting that I had a 9 and 6 year old that didn't know how to ride their bikes.  But, they didn't, that's life, and now they do.  So it's all good!  And they are super happy!!!  I finally FINALLY used an element on this page that I've been meaning to for ages.  Bingo cards seem to be making the rounds in the crafting world, and I've seen them on lots of cards and every time I do, it reminds me that I have these digi ones I've been waiting and waiting to use.  Well, this project just called out to me to finally use one.  And I'm so glad I did, I love the fun look it adds to the page.

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.
