The End of the School Year and One More Digital Layout...

...for now, then I'll get back to paper scrapbooking :) This one is about what a sweet little cuddler Spencer is and how much I enjoy it when he climbs up on my lap just for a chance to be close to me. Ty and Blake didn't really do that much, but Spencer does it all the time-his favorite is climbing in bed with me when it is time to wake up in the morning and snuggling under the covers. This is one of my secret guilty pleasures that I indulge him in. :)

Just about everything on this layout is from PageMap's free digital kit, Flutter; which can be found by clicking here.

We have been having a lot of fun this past week with a variety of summer time and end of school year activities. Last weekend we got together at my parents house to enjoy each other's company while Mom and Marc made his famous salsa with fresh ingredients from her fabulous garden.

They canned several jars of this wonderful concoction so we can enjoy it all summer long :)

I also went in to school on Wednesday to have 1 last lunch with Ty as a second grader. He was happy to see me and the giant hot dog I brought him! As soon as he was finished with it though he wanted to get back to his friends as he only had a couple of days left with them. Particularly with Anthony, who we recently found out is moving...  :(  Anthony and Ty met in Kindergarten and have been good friends ever since. Ty is certainly going to miss him. Thankfully his other buddy Tristan sounds like he is staying put.

We took a few photos with Ty and his classmates. Many of his classmates have been in Ty's class since Kindergarten and they have become quite close. I think overall it was a very good year for him. He is still struggling with his reading, but continues to make progress and we are very proud that he has come as far as he has this year.

After school on the last day of the year we had a neighborhood swimming party with several of Ty and Blake's neighborhood friends. They had a great time and I'm convinced we live on the best street in our subdivision. We have such great neighbors! We are talking about having block parties with our street throughout the summer...should be fun!

Anyhow, as always, thanks for stopping by--and have a great afternoon!


  1. Sounds like we need to make a trip east to have some of that yummy salsa!!

  2. It sounds like y'all are in for a fabulous summer. Especially the time you'll be spending in New England with us! :)

  3. I love cuddlers too. It's my favorite! Brayden still cuddles sometimes but Brielle does too.Sometimes they fight over a's a good thing I have 2 knees.

    I think we may need to talk Marc into his salsa recipe. We have "salsa" material in our garden. So far we've had no luck with our tomatoes but our peppers are awesome.

  4. Does he share the recipe? I am looking for a good salsa recipe that I can can.
