Happy Father's Day, Everyone!
It's a beautiful sunny (HOT) day here, and we are planning on going to my mom's for some food, family, golf (golf for the guys) and fun! I can't's been a while since I've seen some of my family (plus...GREAT picture opts!)

Now, for all of you that stopped by during the {SAS} Blog Hop...THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I have been totally overwhelmed and humbled with the response from everyone. This hop was a ton of fun, and I am so in the next time that Lauri decided to do one!

Speaking of {SAS}, I have decided that I just can't try for the DT right now. I would love to be a part of this awesome team, but on Friday I was so unsure so I sat down and talked to my husband and saw that it just wasn't the time for me. In August, I head back to school. This year, I'm teaching a whole new class...a 100 minute language arts block instead of my normal 50 minute English class. Right there, I need a lot of time to figure the class out...get everything will be like I'm a first year teacher, again :( Add to that the fact that soccer goes into full swing on August 1, and since I'm the secretary of the board and Jon coaches at least one team...and all three of the kids play...I lose even more time. So, right now is just not the right time. I would hate to make the team (long shot) and then fail to uphold my end of the committment. This was a really hard decision to make, but I know it's the right one. Plus...there will always be more calls, right?

Okay, off to fix some pototato salad for today, and maybe work on a layout or two. Before I go...I want to leave you with the four layouts that I completed for the call (the altered item is still not finished, but I will post it soon):

This is my dh and dd after dh took off her training wheels. This was such a sad moment for me, so this one is all about the journaling.

This next layout is another one of my heritage ones. This is my Great-Aunt Milly. I'm not sure the year, but I'm thinking they were taken some time in the 1940's.

This layout is one I did for my oldest, Zack. Just letting him know that I'm always here for him, even as he gets older.

This final layout...just lots of fun and lots of pink and glitter!

Okay...NOW I'm off to make that salad! Have a blessed Sunday, all :)
