I had hope to get a post out earlier today but Ryan had a soccer game over near Roswell. It was a good game that ended in a tie of 0-0. One key play was when the other team was trying to score and got the ball past our goalie. With two of their players and the ball approaching the goal Ryan came in from the side and somehow kicked the ball out and saved the goal. But as a result he fell and must have hit his head pretty hard (he said later it hit the ground). He stood up after the play ended but immediately fell back to the ground. The ref and the coach ran over to him and I watched from the side line. He got up and the coach walked him off the field – always a good thing when they walk of the field. I wasn’t sure he was going to go back in but with about 5 minutes left in the game the coach put him back in and he did play. As a mom it can be hard to wait on the sidelines when your child gets hurt. But with Ryan being the youngest I had already learned with the other boys it is better for you to wait. If it is bad enough that they need you the coach will tell you to come over. Otherwise it is best to wait and let them take care of it. So I’m keeping an eye on him this afternoon but he seems to be fine – I guess he has a hard head. Ok on to a stamping project……
Last night was my Stamper’s Club meeting. This was our second meeting for this group and I have a couple of different things going on in the club. First we have what I call an on-going project. At the Stampin’ Up! Leadership conference we made the cutest box as one of our Make-n-take projects and then made other items to go inside. I decided to take this project and use it for my Stamper’s Club but I’m going to add to it. So at our first meeting we made the box and at each subsequent meeting we’ll making something to go in the box. This month we made a small box of tags. All the projects are using coordinating products including Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series Paper, Good Friend stamp set, and So Tweet Chipboard. The color scheme is from the Stampin’ Up! Retro Fresh Style Watch – see it on page 10 & 11 in the Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book. Next month we’ll add something else to the box.
I’m off to make swaps for our STARZ group meeting tonight. I’ll tell you more about the Stamper’s Club later. Have a great weekend and enjoy the weather here.
