Thus ends another school year and the journey begins for high school :( Kala had 5 friends stay the night before the last day of school. We BBQ'd and make crepes in the am. They did what teens do best: goofed around, ate junk food, walked around the neighborhood, read magazines, and watched a movie. They stayed up until 1 am then woke up laughing at 6 to get ready for school. Taylor's party is tonight because she had to play at last night's graduation. It's my first day of vacation and I'm ready for a nap!! Mahkala leaves Sunday am at 2 am for a week in DC/NY with a bunch of friends from school (it's not a school field's through a group called Worldstrides). She is very excited. I'm going to force her to take tons of pics since I won't be with her. I'm sad thinking about it! Here's to a great summer!!!!

Me Crafty? Not So Much

I have never in my life been a crafty person, however I saw this on my friend, Krysta's, blog and I HAD to do it!! So after texting her a bunch and making Eric take me to Kinko's, we came home with the supplies and made this. No--this is not my handwriting. My handwriting is horrific (my poor students). Eric wrote everything down as we brainstormed what we'd like to do. If you'd like to know how to make it, go to the "These Are the Days" blog on my list of blogs I love and check out Krysta's instructions. I'm sure she'll post hers and it'll probably be way cuter! She is super-crafty and talented. This is my one project for the year, however I do plan on using Christmas paper in December to write down cute requests for Santa (the pen is a dry-erase marker). Enjoy! 6 more days until Summer Break!!!!!!! *If you click on the pic of the entire frame, it'll show it much better*
