I'm just going to compile a few random thoughts... (that's how my mind works, in case you haven't figured that out yet - randomness)
Was I surprised about the election? No. This is what I figured would happen. Obama really said many things many people wanted to hear. Well, they wanted Change - they are going to get it. We are all going to get it.
Our church is having a prayer service tonight to pray for our nation's future. I'm sorry that I won't be able to attend. There isn't a nursery and with Big P working at night, it's just too much for me with all the littles.
So, I'll be praying here. We are seeking God's direction for what we should do to prepare for the changes that our country may be facing. For months there has been talk about homeschool parents needing a degree to teach their children (since that thing in California). Big P proposed to me this morning that we need to think about me pursuing a teaching certificate. Although we totally and fully believe in the Sovereignty of God, we also believe that He wants us to abide by the law (unless that law disagrees with His law, of course). There may come a time that I will need that certificate in order to teach my children at home. I'd rather be in the offense than the defense. One minor problem - you have to have a Bachelor's degree before you get a teaching certificate. Hmmmm.... don't have one of those. So, yes, I'd be starting from scratch. Thankfully we know about College Plus and course credit via the CLEP and Dantes.
On to another subject....
The challenges over at Scrap Matters are incredible. This Monday a challenge was posted by Britt to do a layout on a movie (favorite, recently seen, etc.). Although I would have never thought to do a layout on Fireproof before, this really was an important thing for us and so I did.... (this will go into Things We Do) when I get my Library of Memories set up. Image is linked for credits or if you want to read the journaling.
I'm done with my little sister's pages for her birthday. She's not really little - she's going to be 24 on Saturday. I can't reveal those yet, though.
I ordered all the pages for B.2.B.'s baby book. So excited to get those. They will be going into a Creative Memories album. I have some pages from what was going to be B's baby album along with some wedding pages and I'll just be taping my digital layouts on top of those. I'm having them printed on a glossy paper, in the width of a CM album, so I think it will work well.
I'm seriously considering going to the 3 ring American Crafts albums that Stacy Julian suggests. Either those or the Stampin' Up albums. Hmm, decisions decisions.
I've been working on some Slow and Steady Get Me Ready activities with the boys. I hope to scrap pictures of those tonight during the speed scrap.
Well, I need to feed my crew, so I better get.
