So, here we are…

at the end of summer…sob!!

Yesterday was our quasi first day of school!! Quasi because only Quentin went to class. Emma started today and Lil will start on Thursday. Cora starts her sophmore year next week!! Pure wildness, I know!!

First day tree pic…I love watching the tree grow along with the kiddos!

As our lives morph into the "New Normal," we are embracing the routine this year. And I hope to still take a bunch of time to craft, craft, craft!!

Here's what I've been working on throughout the weekend and the beginning of this week:

This is the best…So, I went to order some High Density Foam for some iPad/MacBook Air covers, and I guess I don't really have a clue as to how big measurements really are!!!

If you need an iPad cover, let me know. Apparently, I have the foam to make it now!!!
