I can't wait to make it again.

The "great" aunt and uncle:
Grandma Great and Frances Lind
Lisa, Amber, Frances, and I
Frances meeting Uncle Kevin
Kevin: "Her hands are so small..."
Lisa: "It'd be weird if they weren't!"
Great Aunt Connie and Frances...I think Frances liked the bag that her gift came in better than the actual gift!!
She's getting her Heider influence early...she loved this bottle of Kokanee! Cracked us up for at least 15 minutes! She loved hearing her voice echo in the empty bottle. We were all reminiscing that there are similar pictures of us as babies and toddlers!

As if we haven't been together enough in the past two weeks, the cheerleaders got together again this morning to cheer in the parade. Here they are, lookin' pretty cute!
I have no pictures, but I also got to be in the parade this year as "Educator of the Year" duties. I was DREADING it, but it was fun to see everyone and throw candy!
I entered a few quilts into the Arts & Crafts show...
was I surpised to go this afternoon and see this Red Ribbon on the quilt I made for Melissa's birthday!
If you're faithful blog readers, you might recognize a few of these:
(the stripe-y one is Nichole Harris' - I think it's soooo cute!)
Melissa Kelly's entries are on the right. I love love love the table runner on the bottom.
Melissa - is there a pattern for this or did you create it on your own?
Mom, Dad, and I also went to CBJLS and the Livestock Sale. It was pretty hot, but we sat next to the portable air conditioner! It was a hot spot!
Mom and I enjoyed lunch at Mei Lings, had the car washed by the Class of 2011, and came home and crashed. It's tiring to have so much fun!

They were on sale and I found a coupon code, so they were about $15 each.
They're backordered until October.
Check these out! I saw them in the Nordstrom catalog today! I LOVE them!
They even come in one size bigger than I wear! I ordered them tonight (and a pair for my Mom - she loved them too!)
I hope they fit. I hope they look cute on my gIy-gundo feet.
I'm still shopping... :)

This is my Beta Bag. It's a Vera Bradley Villager. I can't remember the pattern name.
In this bag, I have (can you guess?!) gum, pens, my Beta notebook (I'm the secretary this year), and my two everything-you-need-to-know-about-Beta mini books.
This is my Vera Bradley Vera bag in Peacock. I usually use it to carry my laptop, but it's been known to have various other uses as well. It was my "purse" slash carry-on bag when we went to Vegas and it's usually the bag I put everything in on road trips or vacations.
These are my two favorite purses. The ones I always go back to. After a few years, I've learned to be slow to buy a new purse because I'll usually just go back to one of these anyway.
I got the top one from Target a few years ago. I love love love it. It's big, roomy, and can hold lots of stuff. My one rule for purses is that it has to be able to hold my planner, which is a bulky six (five?)-ring binder type. This one holds my planner and more!
I'm proud of the bottom one. I know you're not supposed to value THINGS, but I value this. I bought this for myself the summer after my first year of working as a counselor. It represents hard work to me and the accomplishment of a goal. I love carrying this Coach Carly. It's well-loved. I used it everyday for an entire year, which if you know me, is terribly unusual. It shows a lot of wear and tear. I wish I could repair the worn spots and preserve it for the years to come, but I'd rather enjoy it now and use the heck out of it! Maybe I'll have a good excuse to treat myself to another Coach sometime in the future!
