Monday (cough, cough, sniff)

Recovering from a cold - I hate it when viruses don't listen and leave when you tell them to.  They're just so inconsiderate about your schedules.

While the cold made getting around, well just getting up, difficult, it was worth it once I hauled my butt up.  Both my boys finished their regular seasons with a win!!  My 12 y.o. won 3-0, which along with the #1 ranked team's win, put my son's team in 2nd place and thus earned them a move up to the next level for their U13 season!  My 10 y.o.'s win of 3-2, gave them their second win in two seasons!  It's a long time without a win, but it was a great way to finish out the year and head in to tryouts in a few weeks!

My daughter heads into her final week, and finals week, at school.  It's hard to believe her time there is coming to a close.  I remember dropping her off that first day in Kindergarten, in her little purple skirt and pink top (or was it pink skirt and purple top), so excited to be going to school - well, on the outside.  Her hands were clammy - a sure sign she's not as calm as her outward appearance would have you believe.  She was so little then.  (sniff)

Let's have a look at May's Guest Designer, Wendi's work for this week.  Using the October Afternoon portion of the May Smaller than a Breadbox kit, Wendi has created this adorable layout.  Love that she punched out the dots from the Root Beer Barrels paper and stitched them down to embellish her page.  Check out more from Wendi at her blog HERE.

You can also find Apron Strings sponsoring this week's sketch over at Sketch Inspirations.  This week's sketch is a good one, and if the one-photo thing is tricky for you, it's a great size that you can work multiple photos into its space.  Check out what the Sous Chefs did with the sketch while you're over there!

I'm off to do some wrap up stuff - we've got tickets to the Rockies game, though that sounded more exciting before their recent slide out of the win-column.  Maybe we'll be good luck charms ;D  If not, can you say photo-op??
