Misc April- June scrapbook pages

Too many pages I have to do in advance and then can’t post until a particular date. They stack up and I forget about them a lot of the time, especially when it comes to posting here on the old blog. So, here’s a number of pages that I’ve been collecting for a while. ;)

PlayWithMe_1-7-11  journaling: I can feel the anticipation of the day that there are kids playing in Grandma’s new backyard again. There will be lots of laughter and fun once the boxes are all unpacked and the spring weather truly arrives. I know that the tire swing will provide hours of joy, as I remember how much I loved the one in our backyard in Tulsa.

journaling: Bryce had his first cornet recital November 21 at The Springs Community Church. He played well, especially for his first solo performances! Bryce played Ballad in Blue by Robert Girlamo for his solo piece; Mark accompanied him on the piano. His second piece was a duet with his teacher, Greg Arnold. They played Blue Skies by Irving Berlin. November 21, 2010.

Sledding_12-31-10 journaling: It was bitterly cold this last day of 2010, but Sarah still wanted to go sledding. We walked to the back of the school and spent about 20 minutes sliding down the hill before Brenna and Sarah got too cold to enjoy it any more. A mug of hot chocolate helped to warm their insides once we got home.

  Brenna_BeALady_2-10-11 journaling: Last spring after the first grade did their musical, Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, Brenna told me that she wanted to have a part next year and not just be in the choir. She didn’t hesitate this year to tell Ms. Champlin when the time came and she was assigned the part of Dot the Ladybug in this year’s musical, Bugz. Not only did she get to sing a solo, but she got to dance too- her favorite 2 things in the world.

A page from our 2006 vacation.CarnegieScienceCenter-Magic journaling: It was an exhibit that fascinated everyone in the family- just how do they do those amazing magic tricks? yep, it’s science... and the art of diversion too. Each of the tricks could be seen from the front as the audience would see it, and then behind the scenes it was explained how it was all done. There was a live show too that demonstrated a few of the common tricks found in that setting.

 Sarah&Charlotte_5-26-11 journaling: Charlotte seems like an eighth member of our family some days. Sarah loves to pretend that she is a real baby of her own. She changes clothes, eats, naps, cries, and gets sick and needs medicine. Charlotte likes to go on shopping trips and to see new things. She can often be found sitting in Mama’s purse during those longer trips. It’s fun to see Sarah taking care of her and enjoying this doll from her great-grandmother Patsy.

CarnivalDreams_5-24-08  journaling: Several times a summer this small traveling carnival arrives at a vacant lot near our home. The flashing lights are like a beacon calling out to everyone to come and spend an hour or two having a good time. My kids are not immune to its siren call and beg to go each time we drive by.
