Gearing Up & A Winner...

It's that time again... the summer is winding down, and school is about to start. We have dance classes that start this week. Bailey has decided to take ballet this year... She has not taken ballet since she started dance waaaay back. She is a bit nervous (silly girl). I told her it'll all come back to her, once she starts. The new dance studio isn't quite ready yet, so we are still in the old location. We are all anticipating the new move over though! CAN NOT wait! It will be soooo nice! If you are in the Lewisville/Flower Mound area and looking for a studio, you definitely want to check out Amy's studio:"Footlights Dance Studio". She's been in business since 1996, is a Christian, and a wonderful instructor and mom. We love it there! ;)

We spent the weekend (TAX FREE!) shopping for back-to-school clothes and shoes.... Yikes, these kids grow too fast! They had fun, and mom and dad were thrilled to save (much) money between all the sales, coupons, and NO TAX!!! Yippee! I had forgotten to take the camera with us, which is too bad, I could have had a couple good "bargaining" pictures of Bailey! ;)

Thursday is meet the teacher night, and then I'm off to Women of Faith! I'll be going with the same bunch from last year, and I can't wait! ANOTHER dose of Anita Renfroe is what I'm needing. And she will the speaker for the pre-conference on Friday- YAY! She is such a hoot! If you have not heard (which I can hardly believe) her Momsense song,then click on over to her website... she also has the new "Dadsense" song... ;D LOVE IT! lol I feel so blessed to have met and speak with her not only once, but twice last fall. She is just so hilarious! Her comment on this picture taken with my sister and myself was,
"Gee, let's take this picture, I feel like I'm a boob-sandwich!".

Then after a wild "girly" weekend, the kids will be off to school bright and early Monday morning... It's gonna be tough. Normally we would have started the earl(ier) bedtime routine to get them in sync before school starts, but they have been staying up late watching the Olympics. They love watching, and I figure it's better than all the other junk they get too much of!

So..... waiting, waiting for a winner of another MINI ART JOURNAL..... I drew a name last night, but could not post... Blogger/Google give me fits with my password sometimes. I change it to the exact same thing, but yet it doesn't let me log in... Ugh. So here I am finally logged in and ready to reveal.....
But first, THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU who left a comment. I appreciate you taking the time to do so. Each one means alot to me! This blog is always a work in progress... so tips and ideas are always welcome!

And the winner is?

Thanks for stopping by and go and check out Linda Jo's Obsessions... Linda, send me your addy, and I'll send your little gifty (and November can't come soon enough ;)!!

Again, thank you all for your comments!
