A Special and an Update!

Please forgive the lack of posts! (I even missed a hop yesterday, that never happens, ack!)  Just having a great, busy summer with my kids. :)  It is Camp Mom here, and I will share soon some of the activities I have put together for them and a few things we are doing to keep some education in the mix so they keep up all their skills for the Fall.  Also stamping for next week's new Gina K. Designs release, but of course I can't show yet!  (Are you gonna love though, eek!!)

Tomorrow is the regional swim meet at University of Texas, both my boys will be competing.  Can you please say a prayer for them for good health and good swims tomorrow?  This is the qualifying meet for the State Meet in Corpus in a few weeks, and you may remember Jonathan qualified the last two years. 

  He has earned a first place ribbon for all the events he has entered at our neighborhood meets the past three weeks (they are limited to only 3 events each meet), and is the number one seed for his 25 meter Free and #2 for both his 50 Free and 25 Butterfly going into this meet (there are a few pools we weren't matched up against so there is one boy who is really fast as well he hasn't been matched up with yet, that is going to be SOME race!!).  He just needs to come in the top 3 in one event to win, but we are hoping of course he takes all three races!  I will update you shortly with more about what a wonderful season they've had swimming.  Although William's times will probably not be enough to qualify, his hard work is paying off and he got some first and second place ribbons this season, too!  And has taken about 6 seconds off his 25 Free and and more thn 10 off his 50 in the last 4 weeks. :0  We are so proud of both of them.

Jonathan turned 11 on Monday and we went to Schlitterbahn waterpark in New Braunfels.  God gave us weather more perfect for it than we could have asked for.  don't get me started how pecial he has made the last 11 years of my life, don't have time to post it all here. Omgosh! Waterworks!  My baby!!  Sniff!


Finally, I'm sure you all know about the Gina K. Designs special going on, and I hope you are able to take it advantage of it!  Great time to move some stamp sets from your wishlist to the cart! ;)  I plan to go buy some of the new Red Velvet cardstock and reinkers for all my new Gina K ink pad colors. :)    Stamps for qualifying orders are automatically added to your order, easy peasy!
  
Hope you are all having an excellent summer and creating some great memories!  Once swim is over, I'll have more time to write and create.  Hugs!
