Sometimes I’m not sure what to title a blog post! Today I have random pictures from my phone to share, so
Random Scenes of Summer seemed fitting. Sometimes I have no idea what to blog about. Today is really one of those days so bare with me. I haven’t posted anything in a few weeks so I’m due.
For the past few days I’ve been working on VISORS. I have 25 to do in all and am working to finish those up today. The visors are for my friends at Lake Martin Crazy.com. Anyway, check out my recent post on doing Visors using a cap frame. I was able to knock these out in 2 days (the front logo). Now I am working on adding the web address to the side panel of each visor. I think I’m halfway done!
We spent another week at the beach earlier this month. Each summer we spend a week in the Seagrove/30A area of Florida with my entire family and a week in the Perdido/Orange Beach area with Jeff’s family. Love them both! I just love the beach. Here are a few photos from that trip! Below are my 5th, 1st and 2nd graders (in a couple of weeks)!!!
Isn’t the water beautiful??!! It was smooth like this all week, like a lake, with sandbars every day! It was awesome!!
I wanna go back!!!! TAKE ME BACK…..
The day after we got home from the beach, we dropped the oldest off at sleep-away camp for a week. Browder went last year, and this year he was so excited and talked about what they would be doing for 2.full.days. Nonstop “Last year we did….. and …….”
Fast forward to when it came time for us to leave him, and the tears started flowing! I guess it’s good for your kids to NOT want you to leave them? The key to camp drop off, we have found, is to throw their stuff on their bed, shove their bag in their cubby and then LEAVE. Do it quickly so they don’t have time to think about you leaving them for an entire week. We left and he was fine 20 minutes later and had a blast all week, but it was heart breaking to leave him looking like this!
I told you these were random pics from my phone! Maggie got a good hair trimmin while Browder was at camp! She’s been a little self conscience this past week but I think she’s coming around to her new do.
Who’s ready for back to school? NOT ME!!! 3 weeks from today, my kids will be back in school. Back to homework. Back to carpool. Back to backpacks and uniforms and calendars. Back to the afternoon battle of reading and correcting homework. Below are my school supply lists. 1 school supply list is kind of fun. I used to love going to Target and spending an hour trying to find the exact supplies listed and checking each item off my list. Times 3?? Not so much. I am DREADING this!!! TAKE ME BACK TO THE BEACH!!!!!
What do you want to hear about on the Cafe Blog?? Give me some ideas for this fall. I struggle to find a balance between embroidery embroidery embroidery and what’s going on in the Gulledge household. Comment or email me ~ firstname.lastname@example.org! I’d love to hear any and all suggestions! Have a great rest-of-the-week!
