Hi All! Hope you're having a great morning thus far! Mine has been pretty quiet. The kids got up, ate breakfast and have started watching Finding Nemo. They love that movie and have probally seen it a dozen times now. As long as it keeps them quiet so I get get some computer time, that makes me happy.

I've been meaning to tell you about Emma and her "school". She is so sweet and smart for being not quite 3 1/2 yet. She understands the concept of going to school, taking her lunch and a backpack, and she knows that she'll learn her ABC's. She puts on her backpack and tells me that she's going to school. We kiss, hug, and say goodbye, then she hides in the front porch for a minute, then she comes running saying "I'm home from school Mom"! I ask her what she learned in school and she replys "ABC's". It's sooo sweet. So, I decided I would turn the dining room into a school room for her. I went to IKEA the other day and bought her a standing blackboard with a pack of chalk, some new crayons, paper, and erasable/washable markers. I set up the chalkboard and she took her place at the table. We then spent the next few hours playing school. She loved it!!! And it's so great too because she is actually learning her ABC's. Aiden gets a big kick out of the whole thing too but mostly he wants to make a mess. Boys! LOL.
We have recess and they get up and run around, then after some more ABC's, we have lunch. They're having a blast!

I decided that I wouldmake some flash cards that she could use to help her learn her letters. Here is a little preview of what i've created. They're on sale in my store now for 25% OFF too! Aren't they adorable. I've created them 2 inches wide by 3 inches high so they can be easily printed at home. And of course at 300 PPI for optimum print quality. So this brings us to yet again, another wordart freebie. This is a request from William. He said that he had seen this wordart on a layout that he just loved and wanted to use it for himself but didn't know who the original creator was. He sent me a copy of the layout and wanted me to make the wordart for him. This is my version. It is different enough from the original but similar in the composition. Hope you like it. And if anyone knows who created the original, please let me know. Thanks.

I love this word art! With five kids, I have lots of people that tell me my hands must be full. Now I'll think of this quote anytime I hear that.
