Just popping in real quick.

Not too much to say today. I have been busy with the kids playing outside and doing yardwork. I am trying to wear their energetic buns out! Plus, Monday is the last official day of Summer vacation for my kids. We have never had a summer vacation, our whole lives have been a vacation! But now I have school aged children cause I am so old. Here is a rundown of back to school factoids and my ponderings related to such.
  • Jed and Ella will both go from 8:15 to 10:45; Jed 5 days for K and Ella 3 days for preschool. 
  • They will be at the same school together. You are jealous aren't you? 
  • Can you hear my new theme song? "Freedom!!!!!"
  • Luke will still be my little buddy man. 
  • I am going to miss Jed! He is such a helper for me. 
  • I am nervous about the kids getting dressed in a timely manner. I am NOT worried about them getting UP in a timely manner. 
  • Jed can ride the bus if we want him to... still waiting to find out about miss Ella. 
  • Monday the 11th is back to school night and we find out who Jed's teacher is. 
  • Tuesday the 12th is his first day of school!
  • Wednesday the 13th is Ella's first day of school EVER!!! (and the first day of my new life!LOL)
  • I go back to school on August 25th. 
  • I am taking full time hours: 4 classes; art history 101 and 102, Fundamentals of Design, and Intro to Graphic Design
  • 3 of my classes are internet classes. I LOVE these! They totally work with my personality. But I am also looking forward to the "live" class as well. Its only two nights a week. 
  • I am sort of nervous about 16 weeks of school!! The 8 week classes were a great timeframe for me. But I know the fall will fly by too! 
So there you have it. In other news, I had a layout get accepted into an online scrap magazine. Scrapbook News and Review. That was really fun!! 

Erick and I are worn out from our summer with the kids. Running them around, doing yardwork, working hard, and life is sometimes exhausting. But it is all good. Now I am off to stare off into space. 

Ok, really, I just got totally distracted in Photoshop. Here is a picture of my kids at the park. It was so cute the way they were all standing around this single patch of flowers. I played with a photoshop technique I learned from Jessica Sprague's website. So I will show you the before and after. Not a huge change, but see how it brought out some details and improved the picture? It's a little sharper.
