Good-bye, July...

So, was browsing blogs and while reading Jamie's, decided to post one last time in July as well. 26 more days of our summer (well, Seth's, anyway)... a few extra for Tessa. She has decided that she wants to go to a camp. Seth's been to several (Upward Soccer, Upward Basketball, Lego Robotics, and next week, a 2-day Upward Baseball camp). So, tomorrow, I think we'll sign up for a Stars/Space camp at the Natural Science Center for the middle of July. It's only afternoons from 1-3, so should be fun for her. She'd prefer an "animal care" camp, but that will have to wait until next summer.


And here's our summer in a nutshell (found this cool site today to make this, which I will use for a layout at the end of the summer): Wordle. Fun!




And, my first layout where I have actually sewn on the layout itself (not much, but a little... and I sewed the button flowers). Tribute layout to my great Aunt Madge (wrote a bunch of things on the back about her too). I used some of her buttons and a WIP kit from Nov.'07, I think. Who knows, maybe I'll pull out my old machine and try sewing on another one... or try the cool backstitching technique Tali did on her layout (by hand with embroidery floss). It's a "whole new world"...



See you in August!
