Anna is releasing a new collaboration today at ScrapOrchard called Beauty Within. She teamed up with Scrapmuss Designs to create this gorgeous kit celebrating inner beauty. The color palette easily works for either boys or girls and there are many wonderful papers and elements from which to choose. Check out the coordinating wordart pack also!
Anna started third grade this fall. It’s been a really rough start and she is really struggling with her behavior at school. Six weeks have passed and her team hasn’t begun to address her IEP goals because they are still trying to help her manage her behavior. We have a behavioral therapist joining the team and the school wants to move her from inclusion to FAC. In the midst of the opposition, aggression, and anger, she is still in there, hiding and crying out for help. We are trying, baby girl.
When I look at this picture, I see YOU… the real you, the beauty within, the spirit that connects to me like a key in a lock. I don’t have many photos of you without your glasses on and making direct eye contact, so this is especially precious to me. I’m sorry school is so tough right now. We are working really hard to make it better for you. We believe in you.
I was so busy last week that I forgot to post last week’s new release from Anna… A Special Day. Anna collaborated with Designs by Kat for this one. This is a great kit for scrapping birthday memories or any special occasion. I love this color palette! It is very bright and playful.
This photo of Dominic was my P365 photo of the day for Day 237. We had gone to Target that afternoon to pick up some household items and as we were walking down the main aisle in the back of the store, Dominic spied a new remote control toy. (He got Spike, a huge dinosaur, from Santa last year.) This year’s new big thing is a Bigfoot remote and they have it displayed so of course Pickle had to try it out. Oh my gosh, this toy is so cute! It roars, walks, pounds its fists against the glass, even backflips! Dominic was captivated and actually laughed out loud several times. This is why I take my camera with me everywhere!
On a recent trip to Target, Dominic spied Bigfoot, a giant remote-control toy. The way his eyes lit up I knew he was adding it to his wish list.
Thanks for looking!
