Jump for Joy

I have been missing in action for a while.  If you are wondering what I have been up to, it has been a lot.  We started homeschooling again.  My little petunia is in the 6th grade.  How time flies.  She sits across from me at my desk.  We have a daily video lesson.  I do mean"we" because a virtual classroom video is playing as I work with her.  So in essence, I am repeating junior high without the drama this time.  

We started early this year because we needed to carve out some time for a business trip.  I never in my wildest dreams thought that teaching a card workshop would lead to a trip traveling the country side in the United Kingdom. 

We collaborated with Oyster Stamps.  Tracey and Graham scheduled three workshops in three different cities.  We visited Bath, Kettering, and Manchester. Our trip ended in London.  I was able to check off many things to see from my bucket list.  It was an amazing trip and I would happily do it again.    

When we finally arrived home,  I jumped for joy when I opened a box that Kelly from Lawn Fawn sent me.   Lawn Fawn  just amazes me at all the cuteness they produce.
