very proud and the next sketch

I'm joining the many of you posting pictures and pages of your little ones as they get ready to go off to school. Here is my only son, Nate, as he gets ready for his first day in his Pre-K class.

The first day of Pre-K was probably pretty easy for Nate because, 1) he's been in that classroom since March with the same teachers, and 2) he's been at the center since he was 6 months old.

The Pre-K program is at the daycare center where he's always been, which is very convenient for us. And halfway through the Preschool program he was bumped up to Pre-K, so he's had these teachers and half of the lessons before.

But that was no excuse for us not to celebrate his first day of a new school year! :)

This page is made for the newest Sketchy Thursdays weekly challenge. This week over at Sketchy Thursdays is extra exciting. We've put together two weeks of all Etsy shop sponsors. Each of the next two weeks, one random winner will receive multiple prizes from a variety of Etsy shop sponsors.

Hurry on over to Sketchy Thursdays and see who this week's sponsors are. And make sure to visit their shops—support your fellow scrappers!!

I used the Scrapbook Circle September kit when I made this page. And *swoon* still in love with it. The background paper and chipboard are from Lily Bee Domestic Bliss and the rest of it is mostly Sassafras Lass Mix & Mend. I just love these colors and patterns.

I believe there may still be a few kits left. If I were you, I would scoop this one up! No better way to get a great variety of all the newest scrapping goodies out there.

And I just had to throw this picture in. Nate got the Fisher-Price digital camera for this 3rd birthday, but I just recently put new batteries in, so he has a renewed interest in it. He was watching me take pictures of this layout, and next thing I know, I look over and he's snapping pictures, too. I love the look on his face. So intent!

Thanks for stopping by today!! :) Hope to see you over at Sketchy Thursdays this week.
