Schools Out for Summer!

After a crazy year for us School is finally out for summer! It is amazing how many things that Harrison learned this year and just how much further he came this year than every other year we have been participating in Special Education Services. Next year we have decided to repeat Kindergarten and not take any Special Education Services so that Harrison will not have to be in a self-contained classroom with only other disabled peers. We believe that all kids should be educated with thier peers while meeting their special needs regarding the academics. SO to all the kids who were in Harrisons Classroom this year...THANK YOU Harrison did great because you all did great!!!!

Cupcake Gift Box

I purchased a template from Inking Idaho to make this cute cupcake box. I am excited to finally show it to you. It is amazing how much time goes into to dealing with the education system when you have a speical needs child. That really cut into my creative juices, but schools out for summer tomorrow. I cant wait until my little guy is home for 9 1/2 weeks!

Field Day Photos!

It was an amazing day today where the kids played outside all morning and did wonderful games that showed their skill while earning points for their countries! Harrison had a great time. Tug-of-War was his favorite!

I love Bo Bunny paper and embellishments. Here is the newest Pet Book I have made using the left overs from the Bo Bunny Dog Class Kit and a few sheets of paper! It turned out really cute. The chipboard pages are also from Bo Bunny and the book is bound with my Bind-it-All! Love it all!

Bo Bunny Kit

I love to purchase kits and then make them mine in terms of design! I love templates too! Here is a great Bo Bunny Kit that only took about 1.5 hours to complete uninterrputed. Remember when getting a Bo Bunny kit to write down all the measurements for each piece of paper you are using first and then to cut the biggest piece of paper first! This really works best and you always have enough paper this way! Kits are available at A Stamp 4 All here in Spokane!

Backpacks for the End of School

It is amazing just how many activities come at the end of the school year. As this has not been our best year academically it has been a huge year in Harrisons social growth. He is playing Tball on the regular Little League Team! He loves it! Enjoy the photo and have a great Friday!

What a Wild Few Months!

Sorry I have not posted in a while. It has been a crazy ride with the School District. As many know that my son has Autism. As I share more and more of our story with people it has become apparent that people dont realize that there are still school districts that practice "Mainstreaming"-letting children visit the typical developing kids in the general education classroom but not fully including them or making it manadtory that the general educaiton teacher to plan or program for kids with disabilites. Children with disabilites need to be fully included with non-disabled peers. Not only because it is what is best for children with disabilites but because it truly is what is best for the non-disabled kids too! They are all our future and with 1 in 150 children (1 in 90 boys) learning to work together needs to be taught early. OK-I am off my soap box now!

Went on a scrapbooking weekend and completed a ton of paper crafting projects. Check back in the next few days as I will try to get something posted each day!

Here is the first project:

A Flower Pot Card!

Have a great day!
