Here come the grandparents

My parents are visiting us this week, which is always a nice break.  I still have to work, but it feels a little bit like vacation and a good excuse to put things off.  Their visit was a good reason to get the house in order, finish little projects and do a solid cleaning (ahem - pay for a maid).  Gwendolyn is especially looking forward to their visit since Nana has been telling her we will celebrate summer birthdays all over again.  Bring on the ice cream cake!

Leopards and Lilies

This cute 5x7 magnet board and 5x7 cork board were made by my friend Renee at Leopards and Lilies.  They are on my desk at work, keeping my most important notes.  I think they will make great teacher gifts for the holidays, and we have SO many teacher gifts this year!  I think I count 10 for all the kids activties.

Hobo Jack

I am getting concerned about this kid. He wants everything to be his, so he started filling up a bag and carrying it around, yelling "my bag". Then it became two bags. Now it's two bags and a shopping cart. No one can touch the cart or the items inside it. "My cart!". I think the cart needs to go bye-bye for awhile.
