Here's my triumphant return to the world of blogging...
Summer is done. It was fairly uneventful. We managed to tackle some major home improvement projects, including sodding the backyard, painting the hall, stripping the bathroom wallpaper, painting, etc. I still need to add some finishing touches, but signs of the 70's & 80's in this house are almost gone.
So now that we're all caught up, let's talk about last night.
Nolen's assignment last night was to cover his books. I'm notorious for hijacking projects like this... Nolen has been known to hide projects from me so that I wouldn't get involved and make things ten times more complicated than they needed to be. When he told me his homework assignment, he could see the pure elation in my face. The poor thing preemptively looked at me "mom, I just want normal book covers". Ugh...normal. I tried. I swear it! Staples was all out of covers but Target had some, and on sale, only they wouldn't fit the books and we nearly busted the books trying to cover them.
Plan B. Mom gets her way. The next 2 1/2 hours were dedicated to creating 12" x 24" digital prints and using them as book covers. Cute, huh?
In other news, Ella can't wait to be a mommy with "big boobs".
