Back into the swing of things

It has been a bright and colorful week here as we have been getting back into the routine after our little mini-vacation. Here are a few highlights: Cutting practice with paint samples. I saw this on another blog a while back and as usual I can’t be certain where it was now to give proper

"It's like a bird party around here!"

The title says it all and is actually a direct quote from T recently! This is where we have spent literally HOURS….in small little segments of time throughout every single day lately……bird-watching and identifying.

Perseverance

He stuck with it, even if only for a few minutes at a time and his dedication has finally paid off! I really thought when he was done he would be so glad that he would not want to do anything else like it but no sooner than I had tied the knot for him,

Being creative

The creative juices are really flowing here this week. T has always been pretty creative as far as turning a simple piece of “trash” into some great new toy. He came by this naturally in our house! This week his new toy has been an old oatmeal container that almost made it to the recycle

This is how we do it

My friend Lynn came over last week and witnessed the crafting that goes on here. I’m not sure if she wanted to run or join in! We finally finished our melted crayon shavings letters and hearts and were able to add a couple of heart chains to decorate the window for February. I don’t have
