OH MY GOSH. Today has been nuts! First, I started volunteering today. I have two students, one who is going into 4th grade and one who is going into 5th grade. I have to volunteer somewhere for 25 hours as part of a field experience for a class, and chose to do it with the group Boys Hope Girls Hope. My kids have good personalities, but behavior is another topic... I guess it's good that I am getting exposed to this early, though!
My summer classes also started today. BOY am I in for a rough few months. My one class is supposed to be 7 weeks long, but the professor knocked it down to a 3 week course. This means that instead of having 7 long weeks to complete assignments, I have less than HALF the time. It's a ton, ton, TON of busy work, but that's alright. We'll make it through! Although there's a lot of stuff I'm required to do, I'm going to make the best of it!
Next, I put these flea/tick preventative drops on the baby today. That was definitely not fun. Socks has such long legs and a body and neck and everything else that he ended up being able to lick the drops. This is not a good thing... he kept drooling at the mouth and throwing slobber all over the place like a dog. I called Momma and she told me to wipe it off. So, I did. Well he's still licking himself and whenever he does lick himself, he jumps like something is attacking him. I've got to admit, it's pretty funny to watch, but sad at the same time because there's nothing much that I can do. He's been sleeping most of the time since then, which is good, but the poor baby. PS. As I'm typing this, he just slobbered all over the computer... yum. Let's hope he feels better by tomorrow!
Anyways.. today is Make It Monday for my SUPER SUMMER SCHEDULE!!! I was inspired by a pin on Pinterest. I'm not sure of the original source, but I'm linking the pin I found here. If this is not one of the cutest things you've ever seen.. I'm not sure who you are! :] I made this as a future "to-do-list-reminder-list-notes-list" type of thing. Below, I'm going to walk you through the simple process of making this frame!
I'm also double dipping and linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for her Monday Made It linky party! Go check it out and get inspired :]
12x12 scrapbook paper (I chose notebook paper styled paper)
STEP 1: This first picture is of the supplies. This is the starting step, obviously, or else you wouldn't have a project to make!
STEP 2: The next step is to remove the glass from your frame. You then need to trace the glass onto your scrapbook paper. Again, I flipped it over so that way you couldn't see the line on the front of the paper if you miss it while attempting to cut on the lines (which I do often).
STEP 3: Add your flower or embellishment or whatever you want to add! I'm really into this flower (it's on my U frame, too!) so I decided to add it here. I do like the ribbon in the example one above, but I like this flower better for my simplicity.
STEP 4: You are finished! Below is an example of writing. Excuse the messy handwriting.. the dry erase marker was a large one and I usually write in cursive and well, it's hard to write with the large markers versus the small markers. Anyway, this was just an example to show you it can be written on.
This picture below shows how EASY it is to erase! I actually erased that writing with my fingers.. not wet or anything. It left no smudges or any pieces behind, so I'm really happy!
Here's my to-do list for tomorrow! I'm not looking forward to #1 and #2, but #3 and #4 I could do all the time!
Go see Moe's freaking GORGEOUS clock she made for Monday Make It as we're doing the SUPER SUMMER SCHEDULE together! I am SO jealous of how cute it turned out.
Finally, I was a guest blogger today over at Wolfelicious, which belongs to the amazing April! Go check it out and give her a follow. I promise you will not regret it.
Have a good night, y'all!
