Since I can't bring Convention pictures to you (right now), I thought I'd share the cards I made to swap w/other consultants. Swapping is a fun part of any CTMH convention. You create cards, scrapbook pages, etc., and then you find other people to swap your art for theirs. I made about 25 of each set of cards, so I should have a great selection of new things when I get home (in addition to all the fun projects we'll make each day).

We have a pack of does that wander through our yard all winter long, but it's not until hunting season is over that we ever see the elusive buck. We had a beautiful 4-pointer in the yard the other morning, as proud as you please. (And of course the camera was in the camper, darn it!) We NEVER see him during hunting season! How do they know?!?

If you'd like to hear the French national anthem, go here and scroll down to the button on the right: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_national_anthem (Sorry I don't know how to put sound on my blog!)
So there's your history lesson for the day from your French teacher!

As we were waiting to leave, she asked if I would walk her to the bus. When it was time to load, she took off running with her two friends. At one point, she looked back at me in a bit of a panic, but I just grinned and waved. Off she went! I got a big wave from the bus window, and in a few minutes they were off.
It sure is quiet around here... Little sister has enjoyed spending the night away for the past two nights (and probably again tonight too). What a strange sensation to be child-free! I have enjoyed sleeping in the last two days! :)

I love you, honey! We've been so blessed. Just look at our two beautiful girls. I can't wait to see what the next 13 years have in store.

We spent the 4th at the lake: boat parade at noon (spectators, not participants) then lots of swimming, boating, & jet-skiing. (Did I just invent a new verb?) The girls went tubing behind our boat for the first time (the neighbors talked them into it last month!) but alas, no camera was present. Of course the day ended with a cookout and FIREWORKS- both the ones the town provided and the ones Uncle Reid shot off. Fun, fun, patriotic fun!
