End of Summer Vacation

Monday morning, 8 o'clock sharp, we will be back in school!  I am not sure who is more excited, me or the scholars.  Of course that means that I will be up around 5, scholars up at 6, devotions, breakfast, and school started no later than eight!  Lockers are ready, desk/dining room table will be ready, school supplies are distributed!

It also means my "play" time with crafting will be limited to only evenings! *no smile*

Here is a little project that I worked on today with my best friend Bonnie.  It is a recipe card book for a little gal at church who is getting married next month.  I thought it turned out really cute!  (the stamped images are Stampin' Up!, -of course- but the paper is something I had on  hand for quite a while)  I used my Zutter Bind-It-All and finished it with ribbon on hand in my ribbon drawer.

(1) The book measures 4.25" x 5.5"  Label on front I printed on the computer using
      Very Vanilla cardstock and a label punch.
(2) The pages are white cardstock stamped in Basic Black ink (recipe set is retired)
(3) In the back I made a 3" x 3" envelope.  We stamped the different "food" stamps on white
      address lables and punched out with a circle punch.  That way the bride can label the
      recipe card.

(Thanks Bonnie for your help!)

I will post later a project Daughter-in-love #2 and I have been working on for Granddaughter's first birthday!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
