It's time for another Lollipops Crafts challenge. This week it is to use Lace, either real lace or the paper kind. I hope you'll head over there and check out what neat projects the design team came up with.
Here's the card I created for this challenge.
Because someone asked or mentioned it, my watermark was made for me by my dear friend Erin G. I love it! I do forget to use it a lot because I need to use PSE to insert it and most of the time I don't edit my pictures before posting (I know, gasp! What can I say? I'm a little lazy about it). LOL By the way, she just posted about a great sale going on at Lettering Delights. Click on her name to see what it's about, if you are interested. The sale is called Dollar Days, if that piques your interest.
In other news, Amy's team had their last basketball game of this session on Saturday. They won with a score of 38-8. Um, yeah, that's not a typo. I couldn't believe it, the most points they've ever scored. There are a couple of boys on this team that are real firecrackers and they were definitely ON during the game. They were fun to watch, believe me, but I couldn't help but feel bad for the other team. Amy had fun and wants to do another session, so we signed her up. They'll start practice in early April with games starting mid-late April. I'm glad she gets these little breaks in between the sessions.
She started the mandated state testing this week(this is completely different from the district assessments they also take). On Monday. Right after we started Daylight Savings Time. And the week before Spring Break. AND they get to continue testing the Monday after Spring Break. Because this testing session is eleven hours long. I believe they are being tested on Reading, Writing and Math. I know today they actually had two one hour long sessions (and will have them tomorrow and Thursday). One for reading or writing and the other for Math. In third grade they have 2 days of testing. In 4th, I think it takes 7 or 8 days. Big difference huh? Add to this, my sweetie was selected to help with the morning announcement program. It's called ***TV (the symbols are for the initials of our school). The kids broadcast announcements and the pledge via the tvs in the classrooms. Amy was a broadcaster yesterday and today flipped the cue cards. She does this for a 3 week period. So, lots of excitement for her this week! LOL So far, she is handling everything like a trooper. Of course, she's most excited about the fact that during this testing period she has no homework, other than to get to bed early, eat a good breakfast and be at school on time. hee, hee.
Jessica got to do World Thinking Day for her scout troop and go to a super fun (for her) birthday party this weekend...lest you think she is being left out of fun stuff. She had a great time at both.
Well, thanks so much for stopping by! I sure appreciate the visit and hope your week has gotten off to a great start!
