tRactor .....

13 October 2012
Cut it out blog hop is over here!

I am the happy mum to 4 boys. Each time I say I have 4 boys people's eyes nearly pop out of their orbits as they think it must be a nightmare. There are times when I pull my hair out but I would have also experienced those moments if I had had girls. Bringing up kids is not always easy and it doesn't differ if they are boys or girls. I love how my boys teach me to be a better person and I learn so much from them. They make me look at things from a different angle just because they are boys. I love seeing their enthusiasm for ball games, insects and tractors. They LOVE farm machines and I am so happy we live in a little village and that they can play and discover nature and all that surrounds it. From our back garden we often get to see one of the village farmers at work. When he is in the field I know my boys won't get into any trouble as they will be watching the machines! It is a whole lot better than TV. I love this picture so much and thought it would work well with the October SCRAPTASTIC kit and it does. I love the soft greys and hints of yellow and red. Hope you like it too!
Une page de mes loulous en train de regarder un tracteur qui travaille dans le champs derrière notre maison. Ils sont tellement fascinés! J'ai utilisé le kit d'octobre de SCRAPTASTIC. J'adore ces couleurs très masculines!

Fabulous layout! My son spent the whole afternoon today looking for bugs. If there was a farm tractor like that around, I'm sure he'd be there looking at it too! He helps me to appreciate other aspects of life. Love that.

Boys certainly are different than girls. After having two girls, a little boy has been a whole different ball of wax. It has been fun seeing the world through his eyes. He has a love for tractors, basically any kind of mode of transportation with wheels... planes, trains and automobiles. :) He isn't into the bugs, but loves animals!! I love the way your page turned out! Great job!!
