I ushered my sixth graders out the door for the last time this year at about 11:30, and I'm not sure who was more excited...me or them! There's still so much to do: report cards, final transcripts, putting files in order, and the list goes on and on and on! Meetings for next year begin tomorrow, and standardized test scores need to be analyzed. But....it's summer! Life is good indeed.
I played with this a great deal over the weekend..layers and layers of inks, paints, and collage materials. Stencils, photos, torn/cut up paper. A bit of pen play as well. I even tucked in a bit of stamping using a hand carved stamp. Kind of beachy...not a surprise since I head that way in about a week and a half. Baby Alex will make the trip with us, and I'm loving the idea of his toes in the water for the first time. I've always loved babies on the beach - with their floppy hats and big round eyes. And, now the baby belongs to us!
