It's Summer!!!

(I just realized that JJ is wearing the exact same t-shirt!)

Today is officially the 1st day of summer AND it's also the last day of school for my kiddos! Kailyn finished Gr. 6 , Ryan Gr. 4 and Jayden Gr.2. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that my oldest will be going into Gr. 7 and my youngest into Gr. 3!! Where'd my babies go?? (sniff, sniff)

I just hope that I can find enough things to do with them during these next two months to keep them occupied. It's not easy finding free things to do so if you know of things around here I'd love to hear about it.
They all did a super awesome job on their report cards so I treated them to lunch because they only had a 1/2 day today.

Today is also a reminder to me of how dear & precious our lives are. This day (June 20th) last year I suffered a heart attack - a day that took me and my family completely by surprise! Life has been different for me this past year and I'm still learning how to take better care of myself. But one of the biggest things is not to get so stressed about everything - that's not an easy lesson to learn either. But I'm learning to say 'no' to things and still learning to 'let go' of things as well.

Anyways, enough about me.

I keep forgetting to share some work here as it's just been so busy the last few months.
Here's some cards I made for Simple Stories.

Wishing you all a great 1st day of summer! Enjoy!
