Scrappy Day

As you can tell, I'm still on my Staycation! My boys have been wonderful for me, today my oldest slept until 10... I had to wake him up!

Here's my oldest at the BMX track after playing around with brother & dad. I didn't care for any of the BMX pictures (you've seen one practice sessions, you've seen a few hundred) But this one of him really stood out to me. Back of girls, that's my baby and he's only 12
My younger son is a real "man's man" if there are tool involved, he's there! He wanted to build his own trailer, so he & dad worked out what needed to be done & while dad was working on other stuff (probably stuff for me), our little guy went to town on his trailer. Dad helped put the wheels on which they found at grandpa's house.
Let's not forget my main squeeze! Ron's boss likes to close the office now & again for the guys to golf, hunt, or fish. When I showed Ron this page I made for him, I asked if I'd forgotten to write anything. The handwriting that you can't read says "1st Catch & Biggest Catch of the Day"... men!
I love when the boys bring home their art from school. Granted some of it is just trash (those are usually the ones I have to dig out of the bottom of the backpack a month after they got them) but some really catch the eye. This one I love:
Oldest Son's Page Products Used: CTMH printed paper, cardstock, ink & Connections Stamp Set.
