Madi has had a ton of fun this summer playing with friends! I think the lack of routine really gets to her though and it's time for school to start! Unfortunately, Madisyn started having 'tonsil stones' and is having surgery Friday to remove her tonsils. I've heard it is very hard for them and that it's 10 hard days of recovery. I feel so bad for her. She has so much anxiety as is...and I'm worried about how she'll handle all this. I haven't told her yet that she's gonna miss the first few days of school - poor sweetie! Please say a prayer for her this Friday that all will go well! Thank you!
In June, the poor guy got his finger smashed in the door. The x-ray just showed a flatted bone - it was so crazy! He also had a ton of blood under his fingernail, so they had to drill holes to release the pressure and blood. Not fun! Luckily, he was able to take it all off the day we arrived in California in July - so happy! He just lost his nail from it all - what a journey for the guy!
Next week, he starts first grade! I can't believe he's going to be at school all day with Madisyn! So crazy! A new school in just opening right up the street from us so that is really exciting! He will have a great year!

So, as you can see...this summer has been crazy for our little family! Ryan is usually gone every week for work so it's just me running everyone around and trying to stay sane! I'm looking forward to the big kids going to school all day to help get some balance, schedule and routine back into our daily lives. It's much needed! :) I'm looking forward to some much needed creative time! :) Thanks for your comments on the last post! It's good to hear from some of you and that your still here with me! I'm gonna get lots better!
Here is another layout that I did for American Crafts. I laughed at myself that both of my layouts had white cardstock bases - kinda funny! The branch is a design by American Crafts for the Silhouette die-cutting machine. The labels were cut with the Silhouette too. Love that machine!
