Sports and Scrapping

Fall Sports

Today was Rachel's first soccer clinic, and she loved it.   She was fun to watch because I'm not too sure sports are going to be her thing, lol. I supposed we'll have to wait and see, but I suspect she might be the more artsy one of the two. Elizabeth had fun helping her though until it was time for her volleyball game.

Poor Elizabeth though, she is learning a sports lesson this season, lol. First of all, she is the tallest on her team, no big surprise there because she has almost always been the tallest in everything she has done.  But this time, most of the girls are really a lot smaller than her; one girl barely reaches her chest, lol.  And then only one other girl on her team has actually played the game before.

You can just see the frustration on Elizabeth's face as time after time the girls just stood there (in the game) and let the ball land on the floor in front of them while they just watched.  So we're trying to encourage her to be patient and remember when she was the only one in softball that had never played before. In fact, she thought she third base was first base, LOL.

But even through all my 'good try's' and 'wahoo's and 'go team's I have to admit that I was getting frustrated wtih her coach. She just wasn't coaching, she wasn't even correcting the kids positions, and none of them were in the right spots, lol.    So I am trying to remind myself that she's just a college student... and I guess I should perhaps try to help next week during practice instead of silently giggling at the girls efforts.

New Products

Scrapbook-Elements had a new U Build It kit; many of the designers created paper and element packs all using the same color swatch and them of Abundant Fall. But rather than sell it as a huge collab, we're selling them each for either a dollar or two dollars each and you the customer can choose which pieces you want.

My products are all on sale for only $1.00 each! :) The kit will only be available at this price for a limited time, so don't procrastinate on picking it up.
