Dear Christopher Columbus,

Dear Christopher Columbus,

     I would like to take the time to thank you  or I guess I should say, thank you to my school district for giving us the day off today. It was really fun scrapbooking with Sophia. She made her first scrapbook. I cut up some of my cheap Halloween paper stash into 6 x6 pieces. Used my crop-o-dile (a heavy duty hole puncher that is a must of you make scrapbooks and need to punch your own holes). I had some binder rings on hand and, viola, we had a scrapbook.

Sophia got a little experimental with her materials (lucky for me, I'd had that pink stamp pad forever and didn't really care about it).

I've decided that I should go through my sticker collection and discard what I didn't want. That stash will be Sophia's new stash. And binder clips! A must to make the scrapbook more official. I must keep those on hand!

It was fun! And while I helped her with her book, I was also able to throw together a 2 page spread for her album. We had a really great day! We had meant to get out to a park at some point but it didn't happen.

We topped off the day with making pigs in a blanket. Sophia loved rolling those little piggies up.
So thank you Christopher and my school district for giving us some fun, family time!
