10 Things on the First Day of School

1. School started today. Bennet is in Kindergarten at John Marshall and Scout is in 4K at the YWCA Wausau.
2. I am particapating in a journaling class, "Getting the Story Straight" at the Scrapbook Nook. I love journaling on scrapbook layouts and am always looking for new ideas!
3. I have been craving pasta all week. I need to treat myself to a lunch out.
4. My favorite show right now is Torchwood on Starz. It's so good. I like it so much that we checked out the BBC version from the library.
5. I finished Bennet and Scout's back-to-school skirts but they decided on other apparel for today. Scout picked out Robot fabric and Bennet wanted a patterned courdoy.

6. I had extra fabric so I made one for Ellie too.
7. Finished reading "The Girl Who Fell From The Sky". It was good, but not great. The author wrote each chapter from a different characters perspective and while I normally like that, it wasn't working for me this time.

8. Starting 'The Peach Keeper" next.
9. We had Despicable Me themed birthday party for Scout last weekend. It was so much fun. The minion cupcakes (inspired by the incredibly talented Emilie at PluckyMomo) were a huge hit! The moon pinata was another success!

10. We are off to the cabin to soak up the 3day weekend, celebrate Scout's 4th birthday and officially say goodbye to summer!
