Back to School!

Yes, hard to was the first day of school.

Magda started 2nd grade and Luca...(sniff, sniff) started Kindergarten.

That is Luca's gangsta sign for Kindergarten, btw...

We all desperately needed a mellow weekend, 
so besides some running around for last minute
school supplies--we basically just hung around the house.  

Magda made this absolutely lovely decoupage cigar box for her hair ties.

She did it all herself...I am so proud!

And here are some shots from the kids at school this first morning of class...

Does anyone else bawl like a baby dropping their kids off on the first day of school??

There is just something about the start of Kindergarten 
that gets me every time!!

Summer Slip 'n Slide

Summer is slowly coming to an end..the kids go back to school next week
and Greg started back with meetings today.  I have taken a little time off from the blog but hopefully
 I will be back, in the swing of things, next week--with more home-made projects than ever! 

But in the meantime, I just wanted to share--that while our family does try our best
to be as crafty as possible...

sometimes you just can't beat a $5 sheet of good old plastic from Target.

Ahh, the days of the Slip 'n Slide...

Magda & my iPhone

My birthday was a couple weeks ago and all I wanted to do was take the day off work, 
hang out with my family and make a special meal...home-made pasta.  

That is exactly what we did and I asked Magda to document the meal-making part of the day, 
which she happily obliged--using the camera on my iphone.  

She took a LOT of photos, and I thought it would be fun to share the best ones 
(they were all good!) but here are the best.  Tweaking courtesy of me and Instagram...

Thanks for taking such fun shots of my special day!!
