thanksgiving hip hop

happy happy thanksgiving!!  i am feeling pretty thankful that we didn't have school yesterday so i was able to get some scrapbooking tine in.  my oldest is a senior this year and will be graduating so i need to get my scrap on in a MAJOR WAY.  this layout was fun to do and looking back, it is what really started the onslaught of her recruiting ride.  at present, megan is being actively recruited by over 30 schools.  how exciting and CRAZY is that?!  when i was recruited for soccer (like mother, like daughter), i took the first offer and was all like, "woo hoo, let's go!"  today it is a whole other process.  we go on college visits and meet with coaches and talk soccer shop and listen to all the things they can do for her. and did you know that colleges now ROCK?!  i went to a private school but it seems like the ghetto now.  i mean in one school, they had starbucks and papa john's pizza as part of their MEAL PLAN!! and free laundry!!!  do you remember how hard it was to scrounge around to find quarters?!  and the facilities are amazing.  it is really neat to see.  again, i am also thankful that megan's hard work and sacrifice are paying off (in 1st grade we call this "making a connection" to my opening blog post.. :)

(all stamps from the latest S.M.A.K. kit)

here is the latest college visit pic and a front runner:  culver-stockton college in missouri

so in between your thanksgiving feast and holiday shopping (unity's "brown thursday sale" is uh-mazing!), don't forget this:

i created her funeral boards when she died.  i felt so thankful that i grew up in a picture takin' family.  there were so many great photos to enjoy.  although i cried most of the time, there were many moments of humor and laughter.

happy hip hop!

i can't believe it is july!  the weather here has been crappy.  lots of rain and clouds.  we have only been to the pool FOUR TIMES! :(  that is unheard of (and unacceptable because I am a teacher and have the summer's off).  the only upside is i got a little more scrapping in.  proof:

don't forget to stop by all of the blogs and leave a comments for a chance to win some unity goodness! 

happy almost 4th of july!
