TGIF! Wow! Another week has gone by and Summer's creaping up on us. I can not believe how fast time goes.

I survived another elementary field trip yesterday. The 2nd grade class traveled to Pittsburgh, PA to visit the Science Center. It is huge! It is filled with so many facts and awesome activities for the children to experience. They had a blast and were exhausted! We couldn't have had a better day weather-wise. Talk about gorgeous! I have to say my favorite part of the center was the MALE Seahorse giving birth to tiny little Seahorses. Yes! You heard it here! The MALE goes through the agony of Seahorsebirth. HA! That slays me! They are quite beautiful little creatures.

My friend, Charlene, called me to schedule some Scrap-Time for last night. Yeah! Give me a reason to lock myself in here! I completed my project for The Memory Safe Spring Survivor Week 5, so I am one happy camper! Not only did I finally get to scrap last night, but I'll be traveling with my awesome friend, Angelina to Butler, PA tonight to meet up with another great friend, Lori, to scrap the night away. Ahhhh, life is GOOOOOOD!

Until then, I must complete many tasks to keep DH happy.

I just wanted to update everyone on the events from last night. We had to hustle and bustle to get the timing worked out between DH's Uncle's viewing and Nick's play, but everything went fine. DH's Uncle's viewing was so sad. It's heartbreaking enough to lose someone, but when they're so young it's even worse. I know for some people 50 (almost 51) doesn't sound young, but I gotta tell me you're in your prime. Then again, I may be saying that if I reach 80 ;)

Charlie's sister took Nick to the play so he could get there on time just in case we were late. I went back to his room to make sure everything was okay...his clothing that is. Well, it's a good thing I checked. He had missed two belt loops and his shirt was half untucked. So, being the mother I am, I went right in there and fixed everything in front of everyone. The little girls were laughing. I asked them if they wanted his pants to fall down in the middle of the play. There was an uproar of little girl giggles followed by several giggly "Nos." It was so cute. It was a very cute play filled with lovely songs and hand motions.

We finally arrived home at around 7:00 p.m. to prepare our dinner (sloppy joes). I sooooo wanted to scrap, but I think the events from the day just wore me out and I was in bed by 9:00 and sleeping by 10:05-ish. I know...sad, but true.

So, here I am ready to face another bright, beautiful day and take on all of my tasks in the hopes that tonight I'll be awake enough to get some scrap "work" done.

Here's hoping...

It's been a while since I'm posted, so I thought I better get my butt over here.

Volleyball ended last week, so now I have every Monday night to scrap if I so desire. Well, lately I've been too tuckered out, who knows why, to scrap too terribly much. However, I'll be playing Volleyball on Saturday nights starting in June, so I'll be getting at least a "little" exercise ;)

I received my May kit from The Memory Safe and I soooo love it! It's the A2Z Island Blossoms Kit. I'll post the layouts I've finished so far at the top...I think. I haven't gotten the hang of doing this blog correctly yet and haven't taken the time to ask anyone, so until then...I'm just going to wing it.

We traveled to Michigan for Easter to visit my parents. It was BEAUTIFUL! I had to plan all of the meals due to my Mother's recent gall bladder removal. She doesn't like to plan, so I took that burden away from her. Everything was delicious! We also had a great Easter Egg Hunt for the nine grandchildren that were there. They had a blast! Those little buggers are soooo fast I could barely get pictures of the older ones. Sheesh!

We had some bad news this weekend. My husband's Uncle on his Mother's side passed away unexpectedly due to heart failure at "almost" 51 on Saturday. He would have had his 51st birthday this Sunday the 30th. It is a great loss and he will be missed.

I must prepare for tonight's events which will include Nick's Spring Play. He actually has a part, besides singing with the entire class. He'll be doing what he calls a "solo", but is actually a "number" with 5 other kids. He insists he needs to wear his new suit that was purchased this weekend for first communion next month. I told him he was nuts and he'll just be all spiffed up in his regular dress pants, shirt and tie. He's too stinkin' cute!

Until next time, Bloggers...
