... here I am again. Oh my... I don't know where to start, but life is so hectic around here lately.

I will start with the news about my voice. Well... what can I say: it's still not ok, but slowly it's improving. So I guess I need to be a very very very patient (and quiet) girl. Yesterday I went to school for a meeting with my boss... I was a little bit scared to go back there, because it's been 4 months since I was there. I'm really happy that I took the step, it was really nice to see all of my colleagues and students. The students really missed me (off course I knew that already, they wrote me lots of cards and sweet notes), so that gave me a good feeling.
Now I will be back in the school for two days a week, but not as a teacher. My voice won't let me do what I love most, so now I'm going to write a new teaching method for my classes (I teach Dutch). I think this is a nice challenge too and I can honestly say thay I'm looking forward to get back to work.

The weekend at my mother's place was great! I really needed that! My mom is such a sweetheart! And Julian adores her (and she adores him ;)). Here's my favorite pic of that week:

I didn't do a lot of scrapping lately, but I can show you something. I made a little quotebook (4"x4") with my new Bind It All. I really LOVE this tool!!!

I also have a nice TOOT to share... but you have to wait a little bit longer for that one...

Finally I will leave you with a picture of me and my adorable little boy, taken last weekend. We spent the weekend with my father's family. It was a great weekend, but also a little bit sad, because my father died almost 4 years ago... but it was so good to see my aunt, uncle, nieces and nephews. We live very far from each other and we do not see each other very often. Some of them never even met Julian in real life. They were in love, that's for sure! ;)

Ohh my! How many languages do you speak? Noticed the difference in the comments area and wondered about the language (as well as some parts of your blog) but never thought about Dutch.

It is really nice from you to share the pics. They are really cute and the notebook too!

This book is great! Now I wish I hadn't already done my friend's birthday present because it turns out she loves quotes and that would be a great way for her to keep track of them! Very cool!
