We went to the Homeschool Swim yesterday afternoon and the kidlets LOVED it. As soon as they got in the water they began recalling what they'd learned in swim lessons this past Summer. They had a LOT of fun and enjoyed playing with friends- racing, jumping, "bolly" flopping (aka belly flops) and many sputters and giggles. It was nice for me also- I got to visit with a few moms and swap ideas and successes/struggles with how school is going for all of us.
Today is the FIFTH day in a row that I've been experiencing the WEIRDEST thing. The muscles underneath my eye- just above my cheekbone- are intermittently twitching. It's happened before- too much coffee and I'll get a little twitchy for an evening- but NEVER 5 full days. I don't know if it's related to caffeine intake in this instance because on several of the 5 days I've had this I haven't had any coffee/soda and other days I've had a cup or two--no days of excess. What the..?!?!? I was joking around with some girlfriends saying "Yes, it's warning me I'm about to stroke out, I'm sure" and honestly, I'm a tiny bit concerned why this IS lasting so long. I hope it's nothing.
Here are a few things I made for Christmas gifts for 2007. Handy dandy purse calendars for 2008. And I made sihlouettes of my nephews and my girlfriends' kids also. They were ALOT of fun and the results were amazing. There's no mistaking what child each one is. I'm toying with adding this as an offering in my Bella Carte designs. I plan on doing a new one each year for my children..they grow and change so quickly- the sihlouettes will be such a precious recollection! I'll share a pic of my kidlets soon.
Have a wonderful weekend!
