Isn’t that what vacation is supposed to do, renew, relax and refresh?  It was fun, with some training for me in the middle, but catching up with everything since we got back has been hectic.  We returned Saturday evening to launch into bible school the next day.  Here is a picture of T4 in the taxi I made for our Big Apple Adventure.  I had the going to be 3rd grade class and it was tons of fun.

Now that VBS is over, it’s time to think about school again.  I and the Mr. T have to report back on Aug 12, (sad face) , but that gives me a little time to finish some crafties and home projects.  The basement gets carpet Monday (YES!!!!) but that means everything has to be out of the basement by Monday (boo!!!) It’s going to be awesome when it’s done and it will be a great area for our kids and their friends to hang out.

I did make a little travel hipster type purse to take on vacation so I could leave the leather purse at home (the theme parks tend to have water rides ya know.)  I used a left over strip from Sweewater’s Sunkissed line and that’s where I got the renew idea for the front of the purse.  It was great on vacation and I it’s big enough to use for papers and such if I have a light day of grading.  🙂

I used duck cloth for the outside for durability.

The inside is a fun fabric with a zipper pocket on one side and two pouches on the other.  I also added the key holder on the side.

I have some other things from before vacation to post, including T1’s first engagement photo shoot.  Check back soon or subscribe to email updates.
