I'm terribly sorry I haven't been blogging as often as I should. (And I do have like a million things I want to talk about plus a thousand layouts to share with you. Urrgh!) Looking through Neill's school homework and class works that he brought back home everyday, however, I can feel that his attention to all the lessons is somewhat slipping. Well, the subjects are getting more difficult and there are a lot of homework and assignments for him to do each day. Combine those with his extra classes - football (soccer), computer, swimming, badminton, and singing - that he has each week, it's a huge responsibility for a 2nd grader.
So, I decided to spend more time with him each day to go through all school stuff together and we are hoping that the situation will improve soon. One bad thing about this, though, is me having less time to scrap and even lesser time to blog. I hope you understand. :)

From Neill "dazed and confused" state at school, I'm so glad and grateful that we at Digital Scrap Cafe are making these special gifts for you for the blog train!
Digital Scrap Cafe's August 2010 collab is called "Skool Daze" (which I know is a cool spin of School Days but with my and Neill's current situation, the Daze part is just so hilarious! LOL) This cute collab includes 75 elements, 64 papers, and 4 fabulous templates by Adi aka Le Pinguoin Designs. All these goodies for only $4.99 at DSC. I had so much fun working with this kit!
This month Jamie (CupcakeJamie) suggested to us at Digital Scrap Cafe that it should be great to make some printable gifts for all little students as well as homeschoolers everywhere. So that's what we've done!
I don't know if you remember but we did something like this earlier for the April blog train, and I've got a few comments loving how useful they were. (Thank you so much! I love comments!!!) So I hope you will find some use for these too, as they will definitely be useful for me and Neill. They can be used for school timetables, chore charts, or as a reward board to put gold stars stickers on for the little helpers. This time I throw in the grid template as well so you can design and personalize it for your little ones next time. (If you just stumbled upon my blog for the first time and like these printable timetables, please also check the one for our April blog train.)
As usual, just click on the preview to download from 4shared. Oh! And I'm so sorry that I think I forgot to include the freebie preview in the zip file. So please copy the preview here and put it in your folder after you download it. If you want to, that is. :)
There are more gifts from Skool Daze waiting for you! Please visit these places to collect others. Please also be patient though if the blogs are not ready yet. You know, the same old time difference thing. ;)

I also want to write about the "What's in the Coffee Cup" Challenge that I'm hosting for the whole month at DSC. But it might make the post too long here. I'll probably make a another post soon so please check back if you're interested to know what I'm giving away at that challenge. :)
