Well, its Sunday

and my boys leave today for camp.....its the first time my boys will be away from me for more than a night or two....Tyler was upset a bit last night and worried about it but I reassured him that everything was going to be okay and he would have a really good time and make lots of new friends...I just wish someone would reassure me! lol! Cody is being very calm about says he is going to miss me but he is really looking forward to it. I looked at the forcast for the week and its saying rain for most of the week...I hope the weather man is wrong and its nice so my kids will have a good time!

On a scrappy note I finished another layout for my in laws album....this is my bil Mark when he was little!

Well I am going to spend some more time with my boys before they leave...

Have a great day everyone!
