Come Check Out Digital Candy!!!

You Are 46% Indie

You're pretty indie, but you don't make a fuss letting everyone know.
You just do what you like. You enjoy many types of things - from trendy to bizarre.

LOL! That was an interesting quiz!!!

I wanted to take this time to talk a little bit about a great new site that has quickly become one of my favorites! I don't know if you've ever heard of Digital Candy, but I love it there! The ladies are all very friendly and welcoming, and we have fun challenges and some great freebies in the gallery. We're still very small, but we're growing everyday!

If you haven't joined yet, I would encourage you to do so. Anyone who joins and posts between now and the end of May will get an awesome free Mega Kit! How exciting is that!!! Click on the image below for the link:

In other news, I haven't been updating my blog as much because May has been such a busy month as far as work goes! I've been working on average 3-4 days a week, so that is very encouraging for me. I've been working a lot at the Middle School Level, which I am learning to enjoy and appreciated more and more each time I teach those students. So this has been a very positive and productive month for me!

Now for a couple of LOs!

This was just such a cute one of Lydia, it was hard not to scrap her! Kit is Alma's Candy Page Set by Alma's ScrapHabit Designs @ The Scrap Habit.

This is Lydia on her new trike outside! She really loves to ride it!

I am teaching gym today at the middle school level. It's actually going pretty well. It's a school that I've been in a few times now and I really enjoy it! Mind you, this is the first time I've ever taught gym here, but the kids are all the same so they know me and I am getting to know them.

The teacher has set up for a very easy day today. He has set up some volley ball nets, the basketball equipment and the badminton set. So all I have to do is divide the kids up into groups and supervise them. I supervised the gym during lunch and played some badminton with the students. I don't know who enjoyed it more, myself or them.

Yesturday, Lydia and I went to Parent and Tot Gym Fun. This was a lot of fun for both of us. Lydia had some practice playing with balls, going through the little tunnel and playing on the mats. Then, the kids did some games and songs, like Red Rover, Hokey Pokey, and a few other fun things. Lydia enjoys going and its great to see her interacting with kids her own age. And with the work schedule I've had, its tough to find time to go during the week, so I love it when I have the day off and I can take her to these special groups, like Parent and Tot.

Guess who got new wheels?

You Are 64% Open Minded

You are a very open minded person, but you're also well grounded.
Tolerant and flexible, you appreciate most lifestyles and viewpoints.
But you also know where you stand firm, and you can draw that line.
You're open to considering every possibility - but in the end, you stand true to yourself.

This past weekend, Lydia received a tricycle from my parents! I've been wanting to get her one for some time now, and my parents were shopping at Frenchy's on Saturday (a used clothing store) when they happened to see one for $5! What a great deal! So they brought it home. Lydia was very excited when she saw it, she wanted to try it out right away! She's only two, but she knew exactly what it was and clapped her hands for joy!

Here she is on her new tricycle!

Now for a LO!

This is a photo taken of myself and my Mom when I was a baby! It's my favorite photo of the two of us when I was that young. I created this LO as a gift for my Mom on Mother's Day.
Journaling reads:
My mom is a never ending song in my heart of comfort, happiness, and being. I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune .
