Week 4 complete!

Yesterday I started to worry a bit about my LO for week 4 of Queen of the Crop. All the other weeks I'd had ideas for from the start, but this one had me stumped. I had a few thoughts, but knew they would be things other people would do. Then this morning I just sat down and started scrapping. By this afternoon (with child care breaks of course) I'd finished! I love it and wish I could post it right now, but that would be cheating. But it is very cool and you'll have to come back in 2 weeks to see it. I turned it in and it is out of my hands. But just to not leave you scrapless here's an oldie but goodie:

Life has gone back to its usual pace. Today's excitement was watering our lawn for the first time. We've lived here over 2 months and didn't own a sprinkler until now. Our neighbors were probably ready to petition the home owners association. Our yard is the blight on the street. It doesn't help that it has the WORST landscaping. But since it's not my house, and we won't be here that long I'm not going to waste money beautifying it. So I'll water the grass, but no pretty plants here.

I declare Ella fully potty trained! Today she pottied twice without having to tell me and tonight she's sleeping in her panties. She's been dry every morning for 2 weeks, so I figure it's time to go diaperless. I'm so excited. What a budget saver this will be! The only thing now is those moments when you are deep in the Louisiana woods and she says "Mommy I need to potty!" And the closest toilet is a nasty mosquito infested cess pool. Yuck. I had to hold her up so she wouldn't touch the seat.

Anyways, enough potty talk. It's still early enough to do some scrapping so I'm off!
