School is starting soon and so it has been shopping time around here! New pencils, pens, glue, notebooks, etc., are all warmed up and ready to go! I know many people think, "it's just homeschool," but just ask the kids - they have to be ready to go just like "regular" kids. They do have the advantage of doing school in jammies, their reading in comfy chairs, and on nice days they often opt to do their seatwork outside.
We have a hockey tournament this weekend for one of the kids - so we will be running, but it is still fun. One is working on his Eagle project (about 1/2 way done right now) with a deadline of Labor Day, so he should be just on time!
I have been busy trying to finish up swaps before we start school. With an ever changing schedule, I have to take a month off of swapping before I start up any new ones. (Don't worry, anything I have started or due dates for will go on as planned :). Swapping out doesn't take nearly as long as creating everything.)
These are some of the ATC's I have been working on for various swaps. One is a halloween ATC, the other is for a Color ATC swap (orange). I also created the one with the small envelope for a floral ATC swap. My ATC album started to fall apart, so I decided to include some ATC's I have swapped for, though just a few - mainly the ones that fell out. The cow and dog ATC's are from a pet ATC swap; the corner one from a floral ATC swap.
