Moving On...

Kylie did the left background and Michelle did the right one. I love the little design Ky drew on the upper left side. And, she's been practicing writing her name in cursive.

When Michelle got back to Florida to begin her junior year of high school, she decided on a new look: a dark dye and bangs. I love how current it makes her look.

Another left and right designed page by my two favorite girls. The poem Michelle wrote is from the movie 10 Things I Hate About You. I always showed that movie to my World Literature students when we were studying Shakespeare's sonnets since part of #141 is rapped by the main character's English teacher. The kids loved it and it helped make Shakespeare approachable for them.

I did the left side and Kylie did the right side on this one. I found the little tools and the circular thingies in my husband's grandmother's button tin. That Coast Guard 3-cent stamp is from 1945.

Just using up some stamps Anne sent me. Kylie helped and thought the little purse with the necklace coming out of it broke up the monotony of the evenly placed stamps. She signed her name on the bottom left.

When I was going through some old things, I found the 45 of The Beatles "Let It Be"

and that "We still like Ike" pin

and that weird shaped thing in the upper left.

Kylie begged me to take her to Monkey Trunks. It was expensive! $50 each! And, so hard! But, we had fun even though we both got stuck at the end of the zip line and hung there until they rescued us. Afterwards, Ky said, "I'll never do that, again!" Yay!

Love the old Apple Beatle record. I can't remember what was on the flip side. For You Blue or Dont Let Me Down.
