We put out the flag

Yes, yes, yes he did it. Jeffrey passed his exam and we celebrated this last Wednesday with family and friends. In the afternoon he could expect a phonecall from his mentor with good or bad news. Very good news for him and such a relief for me because Jeffrey said to me: I think you're more nervous than me mom. And I must admit that he was right.

School is done and now he has a summer job and at work every day. Saving some money to get a licence for his moped. After his tractor and school exam this is his new goal.

Then there is this oldie ..... a new toy and again a mechanical project for both boys. Last year they were busy with a mini sidecar racer and this will keep them busy this summer.

Still not much scrapping but Kars asked me to demonstrate at the KKD again in September. So that means a lot of scrapping and because I already know what goodies I'll be working with I'm doing some brainstorming since ......

I leave you with a mini-album I created a while ago. It has a wooden cover that orginally was a doorhanger telling visitors where I might be when I'm not answering the frontdoor.

Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend.
