He that loves reading.....

Hooray for Friday! It has been a busy week, but a good one! Chester and Pickle Pants are back to school and both are pleased with their teachers. Chester was set on having a particular teacher for Grade Three, Mr. Price. When I picked him up the first day and asked how it went, his response was "Mom I got text books and everything!" There's my scholar - wonder how many weeks - hmm, days this will last.... When I asked who his teacher was, he says "Ms. Furlotte - she's nice and does cool activities!" I'm thinking, whew - he was so set on that particular teacher I was worried he would be upset to get anyone else - then the funniest thing... "Mom," Chester says, "Mr. Price got FIRED!!!" Actually, Mr. Price simply changed schools, but apparently the grade threes who had only noticed that he disappeared, assumed he'd been fired and started a rumour!! I mean, where else would a teacher disappear to?? lol

So, last week I got my hands on Bo Bunny's new Learning Curve set - yummy - and just had to play! What better time to play with these fun papers than back to school week!

Since the clipboards I made in June for the teacher gifts were so well rec'd, I thought I go ahead and make another while I was in the mood to play. This is the result.

I just love the quote. I had some fun with my new border punch that I picked up at DAT'S as well.

I would like to enter this in the challenge at EBTKS - to use hair accessories - if I'm not too late. I figure all that ribbon has to count!

You'll notice the teacher's name, Mrs. Warden - this would be Pickle Pants' teacher - hubby cracked up when he heard her name! I mean, you all have heard some of the antics that Pickle Pants gets up to - a "Warden" may just be appropriate!

We are on the verge of a very busy weekend - trampoline class starts at the gym tonight for both boys, Pickle Pants starts Tae Kwon Do Saturday morning, then sign up for Cubs for Chester. Finally, Sunday is our Annual Charity Stamping Pyjama Party - I look forward to seeing all you local gals there - it is always a blast!

Here's hoping Back to School is treating you well!

  1. Look at you getting all ahead of the game! Good for you. Our weekend is super busy too...but maybe we can get a walk in there one night. Have fun at trampoline!

  2. I love how you decorated the clipboard, those papers are fabulous! Hope you have a fabulous weekend, hugs Debx

  3. This is great! I LOVE those papers, what a find!
    Sounds like a very busy weekend! We must enrol BD in karate os something as since his best friend watched the Karate Kid over the holidays, friend is Sensei and BD is Daniel Son....oh yes the karate antics got them into trouble on day 2 of the new school year! I am hoping proper lessons will teach the discipline of using high kicks properly!
    Have fun!
