On Wednesday we headed up to Seaside. We stopped many places along the way. We ventured to Pacific city, where the sites are beautiful. We stopped by a few lighthouses, took TONS of pics! Went to the Tillamook cheese Factory (where they make the actual cheese!) And of course HAD to get some ice cream and pepperoni sticks!
Went through Cannon Beach, Rockaway, Manzanita , all the while, stopping and taking a ton of pics! All in all, I took over 450 pics!!! Thank goodness for digital cameras and laptops!!!! We finally made it to Seaside and the kids were driving me NUTS!!! Seaside was beautiful as always, kids rode the bumper cars and went swiming. We watched a fantastic sunset!
On Friday, we went up North and went to Fort Stevens and Fort Clatsop!!! Wow what amazing sites! We've been there before, but it never seizes to amaze me! Just thinking of all that history makes me get weepy!!! Im all sentimental about history! Went up to Astoria and saw that beautiful bridge of theirs!!! Amazing sight!!
All in all, we had a great trip, but im SOOOOOO glad to be home!!!

My daughters teacher came to me and asked to "help" make memory/autograph books for the class for the end of the year. I said "sure, why not, I love to help". So I asked her what she would like in it. She gave me a few ideas, and then that was that....nothing else for months. I kept asking her and she kept "forgetting".. this went on for months...
Then I take the initative and ask the secretary about book ideas (shes a wiz) and she gave me a few ideas. I then searched online for days trying to come up with something magical. I finally got a few ideas and gave them to the secretary. She turned them into something MAGICAL and I had a great book in the making!
Then comes the hard and daunting part...putting that darn book together! I had to cut, copy, paste, bind...over and over and over again!! I worked on them for 1 1/2 weeks...STRAIGHT!!!
I FINALLY got the books done today....tomorrow is the last day of school!! I wanted to get these done last WEEK!! I was soooooooo stressed out about these darn books!!!
Im so glad im done, but they turned out wonderful and am so proud of them!
Next year my son will be in 6th grade. The last 6th grade class at this school. So im going to make that one WONDERFUL!! With tons of memories. I would like to find pics of all the kids from kindy through 6th grade! Wouldnt that be great! With each one personal.
Ill keep ya'll posted on what I decide to do, since it will be next year and all lol
And my daughter, my precious little girl is growing into a beautiful young woman. Shes going into 4th grade, but she acts so much older! Shes so responsible and mature. It makes my heart sing! Im so proud of my little lady.
So tomorrow, im not going to wear make up. I think its best for all that way LOL..Im just going to cry it off anyways. I always get so emotional on the last day of school. Im such a baby!
Well thats all for now, ill journal tomorrow about how the day went
