Talk about "challenges..." Life seems to be full them... don't you think?! *wink*
It's been really busy around here lately with chaperoning field trips, spring concerts, award ceremonies, Father's Day luncheons with the close of another school year?! *shakes head*
Third grade was a "challenge" in many ways this year. It's an awakening to us as parents that our children are truly growing and blossoming into something other than a young child. Introduction of more homework, tougher topics and change of emotions to name a mere few. Even though we will ALWAYS consider our children our "babies" no matter how old they become!
A "challenge" I faced was... after being room mother the past two years, not to mention a regular volunteer at our daughter's school in years prior... I was going to take a sabatical from being room mother this coming fall. Well, lets just say that Mrs. S cornered me with the help of Mrs. B... all I remember is Mrs. S walking off to her meeting letting me know that she would be looking forward to having me as room mother next fall! *deer caught in headlights moment* OMGosh... what just happened!!! Well, when I explained to my hubby, as best I could what transpired that afternoon?! Dave gave me a hug and told me that I better resign to being room mother for the next five years! Long story, short... this is a mere blip of some "challenges" I've been faced with lately... besides not having enough time to stamp! *wink*
During Sophie's April vacation we scored two of these cute Pocket Pet Chihuahua wood mounts by Rubber Stampede. We decided on another friendly mother and daughter card-off! Sophie finished her card timely with some guidance and instruction on "measure twice and cut once!" *wink* I must admit that I did fall behind a bit and our darling daughter would occassionally inquire "How's your Chihuahua card coming along Mom?!" *wink* Well... I had made a decision on my color combination, layout and accessories... I just lacked time, SO what's new!
Sophie has an artistic eye... not to mention that she's very creative! After choosing her patterned paper, Sophie chose her other colors and embellishments accordingly. Then choosing Karen Foster "casual" snap stamps for her sentiment... CUTE!
I look forward to more years of Sophie and myself stamping together! I just hope that I'll be able to actually stamp! *wink* Now to light the fire under her to get her Father's Day cards designed and ready. *wink*
I look forward to our next visit. Until then...
