Some recent firsts

#1. I was asked by a woman at church if I would come to her daughter's birthday party and make a scrapbooking craft. It was Madeline's (in blue) 10th birthday and she and four of her friends created "friends" mini-books with chipboard, Bazzill cardstock, Rob & Bob patterned paper and rub-ons, binder rings and Heidi Swapp ribbon. It was a lot of fun and the girls had a blast!

#2. After living in Morden (& the surrounding area) for 12 years, I finally made it into the local paper. Our neighbour submitted pictures from our block party last week and we made the front page! (I especially like the picture of Sage colouring with sidewalk chalk.)

#3. Guess who hit his first homerun last night?

They've been using a pitching machine until last night when the coach started pitching to the team. Austin was last in the batting line-up, so his second time up, he knew he had to make it home. He hit the ball over the third baseman's head and managed to run around all the bases at make it home before they got the ball to the backcatcher. It was very exciting! I was one proud mama in the stands cheering him on, let me tell you.
