These are 2 of the scrapbook pages that I did for my daughter's scrapbook at the end of her senior year of high school. It took me 3 different books to get it all together. This is the last day of school for her. The title is "Once Upon a Time". It is done with paper and embellishments from the monthly kits I get from Paper Posies. (If you have never been to their site and seen their kits, I recommend you do so--They are really neat and very cost efficient-www.paperposies.com) The sayings on the page include "Some pursue happiness; others create it"--"Walk softly and leave a big impression"--and the one on the second page says,"We are never more fully alive, more completely ourselves,or more deeply engrossed in anything than when we are playing".The day started with a walk down the halls by the entire class, then to the gym to pick up their graduation caps and gowns and receive last minute instructions for times and rehearsals, then time to say good-bye to their teachers and undergrad friends. The day ended with a wonderful picnic at a students house with a slide show of their years in high school. We were asked to send in 10-12 pictures and they were put to music. It was really an awesome day. I believe this is some of my favorite pages that I have done. The albums are some of my best work.

This week is dragging. My youngest has an ear infection, red throat, and stopped up head. We started an antibiotic this morning after we left the doc. He is no worse this afternoon, so I hope we caught it in time. Dr. B told him this morning no more swimming until he got to Florida this weekend. He was telling us that his ear did not hurt, and after the nurse assistant took him out of the room, Dr. B told me "That ear has got to really be hurting. He is really being brave because he thinks I am going to tell you he cannot go on vacation" I agree!! If he is not 100% better by Thursday, we have to go back, because Dr. B said," I am going to get him well. I am not going to let his trip be ruined." This man is the greatest man I know. I can remember when I first started nursing I would see him late nights down in the medical library doing research because he had a sick baby upstairs. He would never leave until that baby was OK. I wish they still made docs like that. Occasionally in my 27 year career I have seen some like him, but unfortunately they are few and far between these days.

Well I am rambling tonight. I guess I better stop so you can go check out some more bloggers. Have a great evening and may God bless all!!! Please pray for our troops!!
