It's Monday!

I hope you are all having a happy day!! I have been looking forward to this week all summer long!!! I get to see Benny on Thursday!!! I fly out to South Carolina on Wenesday and I will be there for Parent Day on Thursday!!! Benny's graduation is on Friday and I fly back home on Saturday!! Gooooo Benny!!!! I just can't wait to see him!! I have been watching Parent Day videos and it is very moving!! I am bringing a box of kleenex with me that's for sure!!! Until then, I have library training today and tomorrow and then I have to report to the school on Monday. I am pretty sure I will at least have half days in the Library and for that I am very thankful!!! We are trusting the Lord regarding insurance and income!! Things are still sooooo hard!! I trust it is all going to work out, but it will only be by the grace of God that's for sure!!!

If you get a chance during your day, please pray for Benny. He is missing soccer tryouts this week and there is a good chance that he will not make the team. That will be so sad with it being his senior year. As a mom, I really hope it works out, but I just have to remember that it was his choice to join the military his junior year instead of his senior year! He really is flourishing there, so for that I am really grateful!!!

Scrapping the Music!!!

This week's song at Scrapping the Music is Kiss Me Through the Phone by Soulja Boy. I took the lyrics "I miss You" and decided to make a page for my sweetie. It seems like all we do right now is work just to stay afloat in these difficult economic times and I want him to know that I miss him. Miss the time we used to have together. I hope things will brighten up soon!! We so need a break!!!
Well, I am off to work!!! I still have to post my vacation photos and Little Red Scrapbook layouts, so I will be back later on tonight! I also have to visit all of your blogs! It is time to be organized again!!!

Have a great day!!!

I absolutely love the "I Miss You" layout....not only for what it represents (what a touching and creative way to express what you feel), but how marvelously the negative space works to bring the focus in on the pictures and wording. It's beautiful.

Oh Kristii, I bet you are soooo excited for Wednesday to get here!! You must be sooo proud of him! I love the layout too, and I totally know how you feel, we don't have a whole lot of time together lately, what with kids schedules and other stuff going on. I pray the good Lord watches over us all and brings us the peace and security we all need!
