Have you seen that Liberty Mutual commercial with people doing little acts of kindness and others passing it on? I love the song playing in the background so I looked it up and it's Half Acre by HEM. Being a lyric fanatic, I looked up the lyrics and fell even more in love with the song. I think the lyrics are beautiful. They inspired me to do a layout. Credits for my layout can be found here.

Had some hummingbirds hanging around yesterday. They dart about so fast it's hard to get decent pictures but I kept snapping away and got a few good shots.

I had a new visitor to my bird feeder today. This is the first time I've seen this bird. Not sure what it it. If anyone knows, give a shout.

School starts tomorrow. Where did the summer go? Seems like we were just getting ready for summer vacation and now it's over.

Like the new blog header? You can find credits here.

I meant to start posting these pictures sooner but time got away from me. Here's the Buckingham Fountain at Grant Park with the Chicago skyline in the background.

Things have been busy. Youngest son (who will complain if I mention his name) got a job so I had to buy clothes and shoes for that. He's working at the theater. Things have changed since Alex worked there though. They make it much harder to see free movies. So he ended up having to pay to see Bourne Ultimatum. But he said he did see part of Rush Hour 3 on his lunch break. He will be starting back to school on Monday so we had to get ready this week. He's got AP classes and they don't provide the book so we had to buy that plus other required reading books for AP English and AP History.

Alex goes back next weekend so we'll be packing up this week. He's going into an apartment for this year so he'll need some things plus some quick cooking lessons. And I think he has a shopping trip in "mom's cupboards and pantry" planned for this week.

Here's my layouts for the Amazing Digiscrapping Race. I got behind on posting. I love vacations but hate how far behind I get with everything. Credits for the layouts are here.

Just got back from seeing The Bourne Ultimatum and boy, was it AWESOME!! I loved it! Nonstop, heart pounding action. Matt Damon is so good as Bourne.

Sorry it's been so long since I posted. We took a family vacation to Chicago for a few days and I'm still trying to catch up. A few things happened that made us realize we're country bumpkins! LOL!! I'm hoping to post some more pictures and stories soon so stay tuned.
