CFC114 - Ride On, Little Man + pics

 

Even if you don't have any "school" stamps, this is still a fun challenge to tackle at CAS-ual Fridays. Think math, primary colors, notebook paper, inspirational quotes, anything related to school or learning. Our sponsor is Ellen Hutson, and the winner of this 2 week challenge will receive a $25 gift certificate for whatever awesome new products you've had your eye on!



This one is for my 4th grader, who's been getting frustrated as the work has become more difficult over the years. My sentiment is that even when you feel you've speeding down the road on two wheels, hang in there and "ride on" until all four wheels are back down. I'm sure there's a more eloquent way to say that : )

paper - Indie Chick, My Mind's Eye
washi - Ruler, Studio Calico
stamp - The Paper Company
font - Courier New
sequin stars

Thanks for looking!

PS. Here are some back-to-school pictures. Hard to believe they've been back for two weeks already!


Only picture of the 4th grader ... he darted off to the bus stop right away.


The Kindergartener was much better with tolerating the photos.


I got the range of emotions, from super-excited ...


to perhaps a little bit of uncertainty (which is unusual for him). 


Grandma even came for the day!
