You know that feeling you get when you do something really fun with your kids? That joy that fills your heart? You just want to shout from a mountaintop.."I'm a fun Mom!" :) Well, anytime I do hands-on crafts with my kiddos I get that feeling. We have such a great time together. This summer has been packed with lots of summer crafting. I just wanted to take a minute to show you some of the stuff we've been doing..homemade green slime, rock painting, ice cream pinwheels, chocolate covered bananas, flag berry cake, edible pudding paint..fun! And I just gotta say that I've suprised myself by the kindness and gentleness I've shown during our time together..I could get way stressed out by the arguing over who gets to stir the paint, or who gets to do the sprinkles first..or when green slime gets on somebody's brand new shirt..but instead I remind them that Jesus is watching our attitudes, including Mamma's! Plus..why spend all that time trying to make a fun memory and then ruin it by turning into "Mean Mamma"??! :) Not worth it..I say!! And a big shout-out to my dear friend, Shipra. She's been the inspiration behind all this craftiness! :) Shipra started an art-blog for homeschoolers called The Wednesday Gallery.We've LOVED being a part...and you can too! Come check it out!
