Have you been wondering where I have been?

Our family has been very busy lately! We have been getting our house ready to sell. We plan on moving closer to my husband's job which is about 45 minutes away! We just wanted to let our son finish high school where he started! He loves being on the speech and debate team!

Speaking of the speech and debate team! We just found out that our son Mitch
"earned the National Forensic League’s highest degree of student membership, Premier Distinction. A degree of Premier Distinction reflects sustained excellence in classroom activities, competition rounds, and service projects. Students may earn points in six separate categories: speech, debate, congress, service, district and national. A total of 171 high school students earned the Premier Distinction degree between September 2011 and January 2012, placing them among the top half of one percent of the NFL student members."

We are so proud of him! He acted like it was no big deal, but we say it is!!!!

Anyway, this is the cover of a Smash journal I plan to make. I always try to make time for my friend Stacy's challenges no matter how busy I am!! I am also entering it into LESSology Challenge #11: Flights of Fantasy.

Thanks for visiting!!!
