~School Days~


Yesterday was an extremely difficult day. It was my first born BABY's first day of school.
I have ALWAYS home schooled because Oregon schools were terrible. And we did NOT agree with the beliefs and morals taught in school there. Plus I don't think its such a bad thing to home school. We always took them to sports and did other activities.
But now that we feel the schools in this state are SAFE and we have the #1 school in the entire state at our disposal, we decided we would take advantage of it and be active parents in our children's education.
So yesterday I watched my baby boy hop on his bus and go to school...while the BABY 4 yr old slept....

Well come about 10am Gage realized....OH NO my brothers are GONE!!
So I took him upstairs and I gt out all my old supplies I will never use and we "SCRAPPED"!!
He had a great time and was surprisingly coordinated at it!
This first page he did ALL by himself I walked upstairs and he had everyone's name on there I just helped with MINE and Hubby's ages! LOL
And the second one he also did by himself. But I glued down the pieces after he placed them.
Its not a miracle by any means but it was a great way to connect and make him feel special for the day...well that and a BIG chocolate cake I baked him!

Yes never get rid of those old supplies I keep mine and when my 4 yr old nephew comes over thats what he uses to scrap with and loves it.

I look forward to seeing more of his work since Im sure he enjoyed the mommy and him time to scrap.

That is so cute! I actually gave all of my kids an album and they always scrapped, until they became too cool for school...I had a box of crap just like that (stuff I will not use) and I donated it to the local Seniors center. They like to get their scrap on and make lots of cards for sale, too!
