As much as I would love to have the girls here with me, I do like getting back into our routine also.
I have been doing a bit of scrapbooking, which got pushed to the back burner during the Christmas rush. The girls are back to their various sports. L went to her first skating practice of the new year. (not to self-need to get pictures of her). So skating started as a fun, side activity about 9 months ago, soon after we moved. She thought it would help her become a better roller blader. Well, it seems she is a decent skater. She has excelled through the Learning to Skate levels and actually completely skipped level 4. So last night the head coach tells us that she needs to start their "Bridge" program if she going to continue to improve. Of course this means more money and practices are on Fridays (the same night as gymnastics). Not sure where we are going to go from here. I am very glad that she is doing well and likes it a lot but she is not sure she wants to compete as a skater. We'll see.
The girls have had time to use some of their Christmas presents now that things have slowed down too. They usually get one gift from Santa that he thinks they will really like. Looks like he hit the mark this year. One of the only things K asked for this Christmas was a pair of crutches. (who knows???) LOL Actually she has been infatuated with doctors and medicine for as long as I can remember. She wanted to be a doctor for quite a few years and it would really suit her. She has recently changed to wanting to be a teacher Hmmm...who am I to argue with that FABULOUS choice of profession. (in case you are wondering, yes, I taught for 7 years before the girls were born) LOL
L got a reading chair for Christmas from Santa. Although she did not actually ask him for this, he thought it would be a great gift for my reader and he was right. She has been spending a lot of time snuggled up in here.
I have a layout to share with you today, as well. Our manufacturer focus for December at Emma's was Hambly. As soon as I saw the Remnant Transfers I knew what I wanted to do for my layout. The layout came together so quickly and I love the way it turned out.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a fabulous week!
