I went for another massage this morning and so far, so good. It's always a little sore after she works on it and I'll need to ice, but my sciatica is definitely better anyway! Hoping to have a little rest this afternoon and watch Y&R shortly while Nathan naps and Kyle plays for a bit. Nothing much else on today other than a few chores and some scrapping I hope, but we'll see how long I can stand/sit at my scrap table...
Here are a couple more cards I did recently that never got posted! I'll also try and post some peeks at cards I've been working on for August classes!

Since I've been catching up with posting stuff on my blog that I've created, this was a card I did not long ago for one of Kyle's friends for his birthday!

Glad to see the sun is out again here today! We're not up to too much this morning, but the kids are having fun playing and I'm getting a few things done, so it's all good. My issue with my leg and my sciatic nerve is still coming and going, but it seems better overall I'd say. I couldn't have said that after my massage the other day though it did help in the long run! I have to go back again Monday to have her work on it again.
Tracy is coming over after lunch today and dropping off Matthew for a bit, so I'll have the 4 kids this afternoon. It'll be almost nap time for him though thankfully, so I'll get a bit of a break there. Tracy and Brian have to go to BC Lottery because they won an Olympic prize package for Whistler worth $22,000 that they need to claim!! Crazy!
OK, well better go check on the munchkins and get a few more things done!

I knew Nathan was tired, but was fighting it! I finally got him to lay down and he crashed! We had a big success this morning with the potty again though he surprised himself when he started going and stood up to watch, so you can imagine what happened! I was just happy he was willing to wear his underwear and had been trying all morning - never mind actually going too! Oh the things that you never imagined would be so important in your day!!
Kyle and Sophia spent some time in the new pool this afternoon as well. I can see that it's going to get more than it's fair share of use this summer if it's as dry and warm as they're predicting. Heard on the news last night that June was the warmest and driest since 1951!
I haven't been very good with posting scrappy stuff lately, so I'm going to post some stuff I've been working on. As you can see, this was done in May! It was also one of the Use It Challenges. The best part was that it has some scraps and some really old fibres on it as well! Gotta love scraps!

We went and saw the movie "Up"! Kyle has only ever been to one movie in the theatre and that was when George took him to see Wall-E and it was a first for me with him. He still doesn't like some of the loud commercials and stuff and the beginning, but we both enjoyed the movie. I think some of the message was more directed at adults than kids, but he laughed a lot, so all was good!
We came home and had dinner and then the kids played in the new pool and that was about the extent of our day! Another one gone quickly! So weird that it's the middle of the week too! I'm going to be messed up for days!
