sketchy summer (kind of a lot of pics--sorry)

here's a few layouts i did today. the first one is for pink sketches #34. i just happened upon their challenge blog and i like it. i think i need to do sketches b/c i have scrapped myself into this little box of kraft and white. now i've scrapped myself into Christmas using red and green. oh well. at least they're colorful! (and i used my new sassfras winnings...yum!)

this one i just did for the heck of it and i'm happy with it b/c i actually used more than one picture.
owen took this pic the other morning while we bfarted at ihop (that's breakfast).
so, it's official. michael is done with 1st grade. he won the spelling award (he damn well better have with the seriously huge spelling words we'd pick out each week...i'm talking chemoautotroph, oscillating, cowardliness, auspicious, and so on. and, what's even cooler, he remembers what all the words mean!) he loved to look through the mail, newspaper, or books to pick out the hardest words he could find. all but one test did he score 100% on. maybe he'll win the national spelling bee someday with a word like Laodicean. anywho, he got all E's on his report card again for the last 6 weeks.how owen eats a donut. we try to get the ones with the holes rather than the ones with the filling.
and can i just say thank heavens we don't have a dunkin' donuts here. i wouldn't be able to fit through the front door.

so, what to do...what to do...all summer long. ugh. should be interesting. any suggestions?

there was something else i wanted to post and i can't remember it now.

Wow! That's so impressive about the spelling. Did you happen to show him the natl. spelling bee on TV, because he has a few years to practice. ;)
Awesome pages too - love all the bright colors! Way to work that sassafras.
