I can't believe that fall will soon be here. My oldest is going back to college tomorrow. He planned to leave today but I convinced him to stay one more day. Which means I need to come up with an awesome home cooked meal tonight. My youngest starts his senior year of high school. yikes! It seems like just yesterday he was starting kindergarten. He attends high school in the mornings and technical school in the afternoons. We had back to school night last night at his technical school. Always makes me proud when the teachers seek me out to tell me how they love to have him as a student.
This is always a busy time of year for me. Not only am I getting my boys ready to go back to school, but myself as well. I run a daycare and teach preschool so I have been busy getting ready for all of my favorite young people. Cleaning equipment and lesson plans have been my daily agenda. Also, my garden has decided to keep producing more than we can eat, can or freeze. Anyone that shows up at our door, is offered bags full of green beans, corn, onions, cucumbers, tomatoes and zucchini. Soon it will be cantelope, apples and pears. My own sons have said, " no more zucchini!" We have eaten it every possible way: zucchini fries, bread, casseroles, stir fry, etc. As you can imagine, this means that my crafting has had to take a back seat. In fact, I haven't had much time all summer to spend in my craft room. I found an hour one evening and was able to make this card.
This is my dt card for Aud Sentiments
