you can't have fun and be creative at the same time? Last Friday evening Liesbeth, Danielle and Revlie came over to scrap. We did a lot of chatting and also some scrapping/sewing. I actually needed to make 10 lo's........and I did!!!!! I just can't believe that I did it. Finished them with journaling today and send them in together with 5 altered albums. Now all I need to do is make the article, but I will leave that for tomorrow.
Yesterday I went on the road early since we had to drive for 2 hours to get to Anthony his workshop. I was driving with my navigation on, but one main road I had to take was suddenly closed. Freaking out....driving a bit back but realized that I needed to try another road, so I did and came to another exit of that highway since that one was the only highway I could take if I wanted to make it in time, only there were also signs that said that it was closed. Freaking out some more since I had no clue at all where to go from here, so I just stopped my car on the side of the road(where you can't stop you car!). A police car was just driving by and saw that I just stopped and stopped as well and drove backwards to me asking what the problem was. Me, crying: "I need to go to the A8 but all the roads are closed". He said that this exit wasn;t closed anymore, they forgot to take away the signs. Sigh.....
We made it in time. Anthony has mixed feelings about the day. What I learned so far was that he did'nt wanted to do everything(too scared/embarrassed). Emotions came up and they had to talk about it. He did do some things though which I thought were pretty big for him. Making it through a whole day with 19 other kids was a HUGE accomplishment for him and for that I am proud. There will be more workshops like this in November so who knows he will go again. I will hear more on how things went this week by one of the teachers. Upcoming weekend will be my weekend doing the Journey myself. I will learn how to do one so i will be able to do more with Anthony myself.
I spend the whole day with Jadenn at the amusement Park close by(Hellendoorn). We never told Anthony this and we still haven't. We had such a great time together and it was just fun and relaxing. We got home very late due to a lot of traffic jam.
Ok gotta go relax a bit.
