Summer Scrapping

OK, so I’ve been horrible about posting pages this summer- just not enough energy to scrap and then when I do get something done it is for a team assignment and I have to wait to post it, and then it doesn’t happen here on the blog if I remember to post it in the galleries at the right time. Here’s what I’ve managed to scrap during June and July. The summer was just much too busy, and too short!

EarsPierced_7-8-10  journaling: It was on the “to do” list for the summer break since Beth and Carissa had told me that they wanted their ears pierced for their 12th birthday. So, after tap one morning we went to the mall to get it done. Brenna and Sarah convinced me that they wanted theirs pierced too, so Brenna got a late birthday present and Sarah an early one. It was a busy day at Claire’s  for ear piercing, but even waiting almost an hour for our  turn didn't make anyone change their mind. They all love
their sparkly new earrings and are doing a good job taking care of them.and keeping them clean.

journaling: We don’t go to the movie theater very often, it is just so expensive to take the whole family to a first-run movie. There were lots of good, family-friendly movies out this summer and we made a point of going to see them as part of our summer fun. A couple were first-run, and the rest were at The Picture Show or even on DVD. We all enjoyed the good stories, great graphics, and time spent together as a family or with friends. Others we would love to see are Prince of Persia and The Sorcerer's Apprentice. We are looking forward to even more great movies in the fall too- Harry Potter Deathly Hallows, and Narnia Voyage of the Dawn Treader among others.

journaling: It was worth waiting a couple of weeks to see Eclipse in the movie theater so that we could enjoy it with Becky and Kari Tamblyn. The girls had Cinemark theater gift cards, so we got to enjoy snacks during the movie too!

SplashnInTX_3-28-10  journaling: The kids favorite thing about visiting Grandmama in Texas over spring break was going swimming in the afternoons. The community pool was open to guests for two hours, and that was never enough time for them to get the splash'n out of their systems.

journaling: Rusty has been working to learn all of the things he needs to know to earn his AKC Good Citizenship Certification so that he can be a PAWS to Read dog at the library. Common commands like sit, stay and come must be demonstrated as well as allowing strangers to pet him, staying under control when there are distractions around him, behaving politely around other dogs, being able to be left alone for 3 minutes, and walking through crowds politely. Rusty has more things to learn, but he is getting there! Good Boy, Rusty!

journaling: The Space Odyssey area of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science is one of the kids’ favorite rooms. There are lots of hands-on activities to facilitate learning about all sorts of science. Constantly changing displays of Earth and the other heavenly bodies of our solar system, videos about actual programs that study our solar system, a sand table with flowing water to study erosion, space shuttle docking practice, robotics displays of Mars rovers, and live demonstrations that show how scientists determine what types of equipment to take on space missions... there is enough in this one room to occupy children, and adults, for hours.

journaling:  We celebrated Beth & Carissa’s birthday a couple of weeks early with a backyard luau. Friends from the neighborhood, school and dance and the Rodeffers, who were visiting from Texas, attended. There was lots of food, laughter, and fun!

Part of the public library summer reading program prizes is a coupon packet from local businesses. One of our favorites that is always used is the one from Baskin Robbins. There are so many delicious flavors to choose from! It is a real summer treat, and mom likes that it is a reward for reading too ;)

All such wonderful layouts, Melinda! You always seem to find the perfect kits for every subject!

Our summer was pretty relaxed, but it went by very quickly for us as well. I can't believe the kids go back to school in two weeks!

What great pages, Melinda! :) I love seeing all of the Staley family adventures. I really love the movie page - I need to scraplift that. And the twins' party looked like a blast, too!
