...brings back memories of being a high school cheerleading coach. We would spend Friday nights under the lights of the football fied. The band playing, trying to motivate the crowd. I took it seriously, so did those girls. Did you know that my squad went to the UCA High School National Cheerleading Championship? The one they show on ESPN...yep, we were there on that floor! I love coaching, loved instilling that pride to do your best and work as hard as you could. They were good. But it wasn't the stunting or the cheers that made me happiest. It was those girls! Learning and growing with them...it really was one of the coolest times of my life. They still all call me Coach, which is so funny to me. Hmmm....I feel a page coming on!
This time of year also reminds me of my wedding! We had a clear, crisp day! Perfect for the season. I just adore fall!
I have been playing with the September Kit from My Scrapbook Nook and it is gorgeous! Pink Paislee Amber Road---I could build my wardrobe with those colors! So here is my first layout. Yes, I realize it is not a fall layout (actually my daughter is wearing a bathing suit), but that's okay!
She is a trip! The jagged border on the bottom was a total accident! Gotta love it when it turns out okay!
This time of year also brings many of our birthdays--Steve, Nathan, me, Sue (SIL), my sisters--it gets nuts! And of course, it brings back to school. My transition is going well--I have no energy to scrap at night, but I will adjust! I haven't been able to bloghop and visit my friends as much so if I haven't gotten to you, I apologize. I will...
Another favorite of this time of year!? Sleeping with the windows open! Nightie, night (and I hope I will dream up a layout using the title "this time of year"...LOL!)
