Time is drawing near

With just a day left of my summer vacation I am left to wonder where the heck the time went!!! I had (as I do every summer) grand plans for what I would accomplish. I didn't get everything done that I wanted to. The last few weeks I have been trying to savor EVERY moment. I also have been to school to work on setting up my classroom. I'm done with the set up. I just need my official class list to start writing names on the hundreds of items that need to be labeled.

I had the twins that were in my class last year for a couple of days when their mom was working. Oh, they just make me smile :)

I have been asking Rich for about 2 years to fix some shelves that were slanted. Finally with the promise of making him an orange cake for his birthday it was finished!!!

I used my newly cleaned scrap area to work on a circle journal I'm doing with some friends from the OT board at 2P's. This is our second round. My theme this time around is Attic Treasures. I finished it just under the wire!

I also have been working on some knitting projects. I still have two unfinished projects to finish. I have half a sock to knit and a handle for a basket for my friend Beverly.

Brittainy and Mackenzie have been spending most every day with me. It's been nice. I'll miss our time together when I go back to school. Maybe that will prompt Mackenzie to actually say my name!!!

Timmy is beside himself with excitement. His birthday is Tuesday and he just wants to wake up and have the day here! Oh, to be young again.

Well, that's my last few weeks in a nutshell.

take care,

You should feel great about how much you accomplished this summer. I am always amazed at the things you do. And, what a lucky friend, Beverly, to be getting her very own basket.

Happy back to school for you, and happy number nine for Timmy.

What a wonderful little update, Dawn. I've been missing you!
I don't think any of us ever accomplish all we hope to over the summer, do we? Seems as if I didn't conquer a tenth of what I wanted to. Oh well. Summer always flies by, but I swear this one went even faster than most.
Can't wait to see some pics of your latest projects! Your scrap area looks fantastic, by the way!
Is it really time for Timmy's birthday already?!! My gosh...time really does fly! Hope he has the most fabulous day imaginable!
