What a crazy fun week. We finished up a lot of things like co-op and gymnastics. I am officially done with all outside commitments. I'm going to try and relax a little bit before we bring our little boy home. Of course, I have a lot of catching up to do around the house after having extra kids the last couple of weeks, and then there's the packing for China, shopping for our little boy....and, oh yeah, finishing up some templates and blog posts for you wonderful people.

Scrapping Tip (actually, I think this can apply in all areas of your life): I just have a little tip for you this week. Take a break if you need it! At the end of last week, I was tired, waiting, anxious, etc and I just couldn't focus on anything. I usually work several hours each night after my kids go to bed, and I just couldn't do it. So I spent 3 nights just sitting on the couch next to my hubby....wondering if I would ever have the desire to scrap or template design again (okay, maybe that's a little overdramatic). I think I was just tired of waiting. I was hoping to hear some adoption news last week, and I think it just wore me out. Can waiting really wear you out? Now it's Sunday night (I blog ahead of time - you never know what's going to happen around my crazy house), and I'm back at it, focused, and ready to get things marked off my to-do list. It's okay to take a little break. You'll come back focused, energized, inspired, and ready to get stuff done!

 Journaling: This week started out with a hike on Sunday after church. We went down to Tallulah Falls, had a picnic lunch, and then went for a short hike. Our hike was cut short because of thunder and lightning. We made the best of it and did a little shopping instead! We needed to get a few things for our trip to China anyway. We celebrated Memorial Day at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. All the cousins love playing together. VBS at church started this week. The songs, games, and Bible Study were a lot of fun....just look at Lydia’s nose! Ashlyn has been baking up a storm lately. She has a bit more free time during the summer, and I’m totally okay with her spending some of it baking....as long as she cleans up the kitchen afterward.

Journaling:  We also had an extra little girl with us this week. We did lots of fun (and messy) activities....painting, chalk, etc... On Friday night we had our homeschool co-op program. All the kids got to share something they learned throughout the year. It was a fabulous turnout and the kids did a great job. 78 students this year! We are so blessed to a part of this group. God is good! I wonder what next year will bring?

On Saturday Kyla had her gymnastics show. She had been practicing hard, and she did a great job. See that smile on her face? That was the moment Daddy brought her a rose. That is my Kyla smile!

And as usual, here's your Daily Life Journal Card. Just click the image to download.
