Happy Birthday Zack!

I cannot believe my baby is six today! When people used to say that your kids will grow up in the blink of an eye, I thought they were insane. Of course, at the time I was desperate for sleep since my darling boy seemed to never go more than a couple hours at a time. I was certain that each day took twice as long as it was supposed to and the nights were even longer.

But somewhere along the way (definitely after potty training since that was a loooong stretch) time began to speed up. Now, the days zip by with lots of giggles and new adventures. I love watching Zack be so excited about each thing that he learns. He has such a sweet heart and a fun way of looking at everything.

Here he is showing me just how old he is today:

My new snack

Hold onto your hats, friends o' mine. I have a new favorite snack that you will never believe! I have gone mad over edamame--a Japanese soybean. You boil it and then sprinkle with the spice of your choice and suck the beans out of the pods. I am using bbq spice and am eating half a pound at a sitting. Fabulous summer snack.

ok, it tastes and looks nothing like m&m's, but it is yummy just the same. Guess those staying at Hotel Dora next month will get a chance to find out. Don't worry ladies, after a few of my frozen cosmos, you will think they are m&m's!

such a sad blogger

I am. Really. Ok, back to trying to stay up to date.

I spent last night scrapping digi pages and had such fun! I finally scrapped my most recent favorite picture of Allie in the dandelions. I planned to journal a bit more, but the perfect sentence came to me so I stopped there. I am sure I will print it and do it in paper, too.

I used products from Shabby Miss Jenn--Weeds n Wildflowers, Sunshine, and Flowerstand.

Today was back to school day for me. I picked up a summer class that will run for the next 8 weeks starting tomorrow morning bright and early. I am excited about it, but prepping a new class is always time consuming. Spent several hours today finishing reading my text and completing my syllabus. Fun, but looooong.
