Lazy Much?

I've had big plans to get some craftyness going around here....  But, it just hasn't happened and it really is not my fault.  I have made about three dozen shirts within the last couple of weeks (in between all of my busy stuff for work).  Today I might actually get some work done.  Yesterday I accomplished nothing. 

Well, you may see it as nothing.  But a trip to the farmer's market, lunch,  and lounging in and by the pool all day was a lot for me!  We finally got in our pool for the first time this year.  It was cold and I ended up with a nasty sunburn.  Here are a few pics from our day!
This is one of my favorite turtles.  He was so interested in what I was doing in his pen.

Don't let this cute face fool you....  He is evil!

Seven Weeks.....

I can't wait!!!!  We get out for the summer in SEVEN WEEKS!  I have been ridiculously busy!  Some nights we don't get home from work until 8:00 or 9:00 (and we leave the house at 6:00 every morning).  I looooove my job, but it is hard work.  We have been doing standardized testing this week and it really made the week drag.  So glad that is over. Anyway, I just wanted to share some of the fun stuff we did at school during our "TAKS Camp" the kids (and teachers) had a ton of fun preparing and participating in camp.
We did that reverse bleach effect to make camp shirts.  Each class was a different "camp" and had a unique color and camp name.  My kids chose CAMP AWESOME.... because they are pretty awesome.  I think our shirts turned out wonderful!

Here you can get a look at how my room and hallway was is decorated.  We worked soooo hard on this and used just about all of the butcher paper that the school had (and that is not an exaggeration).  Therefore, it will be up until the last day of school.  And we have a second round of camp before the science test at the end of this month.
