Yikes! It's March!!!!!

So sorry for the lack of posting in February!

Been trying to keep up with things...you would think that CHA was hectic but life in general gets a little nutty too! LOL!!

Well, March was started off on a real good foot! I was able to go and crop at a dear friend's MS Crop! First time this year that I was able to just hang out with friends! I did more laughing than scrapbooking but isn't part of the fun?!


This is where we were seated. I came in the night before to help set up....they didn't need my help. They had at least a hundred volunteers here!! Holy Cow!






This is the main hall where the congreation have their services - it's huge!






And here are my tablemates! Loads of laughter & fun! Thankful to know them and to call friends! Miss you all already!



Then it was tennis for the boys - thank goodness I can take them at the same time and the same place! Hopefully that will last for a long time! LOL!! I really like the coaches at Schaumburg Tennis Plus (STP) - a park district facility!


Taka returning a serve...he's improving and has gone to Team Schaumburg II. A jump from starting tennis (after a 2.5 year "break") in the late summer of '07 at summer camp to last month from Team I to Team II. These players are aiming to be on the high school tennis team or already on the team.





Hiro just started with the beginner's class. He also has been playing when we lived on the east coast but it has been several years since picking up the racket. He has been enjoying his sessions and I am happy for him!



As for me, I continue to teach basic scrapbooking to my Japanese friends. The Reflections project is a big hit - I am happy to report! It is the altered mirror that I had mentioned about in a previous post. For April's project, I know what to make...just need to make the sample! A minor detail! LOL!! Will post when I finish :0) Here are some of the mirror projects....

















Aren't they wonderful?! Makes me so excited to see other's style on one little idea! I love this job! LOL!!!

OK....off to bed! Will post more often! Thanks for visiting!

It's amazing how fast time gets away from us. I still can't believe it's April already. Love the way the mirror frames came out. :-)

Hello,Margie-san!!
I'm in France now.We'd moved on 8th April from JApan to here. And finally i've got an internet. I'm sorry I couldn't give you my info.

By the way, Are you teaching SB to Japanese? Is this only for Japanese? It's so great for them!!!
