Back to school week…

A week in pictures! My kid’s went back to school on the 1st & it was a busy week.

You think I would have all this time to scrapbook or make cards…nope! not once did I pick up a stamp, paper or ink! Nada! Absolutely NOTHING!

My son started Grade 1 so he is in school all day now & I think truth be told I’m a little lost so I kept myself busy running errands!

Grade 4

My daughter is in Grade 4, the Queen of the school this year!

My little guy starting Grade 1!

So during the first week of school I did enjoy my quiet time, I went to the new Cross Iron Mills Mall in Balzac with a friend & we shopped happily & had lunch together. On Wednesday my daughter had her 2nd Ortho appointment just for x-rays & moulds of her teeth, than she started her theatre group. Thursday AM I pampered myself with a manicure, pedicure & waxing. Friday I met friends for latte’s, Starbuck’s has the Pumpkin Spice latte’s now, yum-o! & than it was off to a doctor’s appointment before the kid’s were out of school & than we celebrated my son’s 6th birthday with the in-laws & in between all that I can’t even remember how many times I went to the grocery store (too many!) & than I have been planning his “real” birthday party, what kind of cake to make, etc. Fun stuff! 

6th Birthday

He was soooo excited Thursday night that we had trouble getting him to settle down, on Friday AM he woke up about 6:40AM to open presents before his Dad left for work, so it was a crazy AM to say the least, good thing I got up at 5:30AM!!! than he went to school & brought a fruit platter & chocolate chip cookies for all his class mates. Than we had the in-laws over for pizza (his choice), cake & ice cream & more present opening! with the start of school so close to his birthday we decided that we wouldn’t have his actual birthday party till next weekend. It’s going to be a Monster Jam party.

Yesterday we ended up going to Canmore, it’s soooo beautiful & peaceful there. They had a street festival going on so it was a little busy, & than a long weekend & today the highland games are there but, we managed to work our way thru the crowds than walk along the river.

Does he look terrified to you???

So on that note it’s been busy! I do plan on getting some stuff done this week, I have all these ideas swarming in my little brain! but, I do have a party to get ready for this week so I will just take it day by day & I know you all come to visit the craft related stuff & not my boring family life!

Well I hope you are all enjoying your long weekend!
