School Starts Tomorrow.....

Here are a few things I wanted to share with you all:
My trumpet flower bloomed tonight!!!!  This  plant was grown from seed that my mom gave me.

Austin is HOME as of Sunday and he starts 8th grade tomorrow. 

 Please say a prayer that all will go well with his transition from homeschool back to public school.  
And of course a craft:  I made this banner a couple of weeks or so ago.  
Dream (a favorite thing of mine)

This is hanging on the door of the closet in my craft room.  There are the handmade flowers on the ends of the banner, banner was cut by hand and guess what--I actually have a short tutorial how to make those coming up soon.  
Have a wonderful day.
