I’m am determined to keep this 10 on 10 up. Even if I skip a month or am a day (or more!) late. It’s fun to share a little bit of life along with craft stuff. My oldest got out of school in May and we have been having a fun and very full summer so far. 1> I started it off with finishing up some Fourth of July projects. Yes, I actually did something way in advance for once. Go figure Those giant pinwheels were mostly made from wrapping paper. Believe it or not, I made them all during a two hour nap time. I had never made them before and was a bit nervous it would be time consuming. I was really surprised when they weren’t. 2> We have been able to visit with my sister and I loved seeing her artwork (see more here). I have one painting she did of miss J and plan on acquiring more over the next few years. 3> We like to pull over and watch the animals sometimes. Both my girls are big time animal lovers. 4> Miss E went on a carousel for the very first time at the Kemah Boardwalk in Texas. My hubby had to go work right outside of Houston for a week and we swung over there and hung out one night. It was a lovely time. 5> Miss J is currently obsessed with having a parakeet and a hermit crab for pets. The hermit crab is in top place though since it will be easier to take care of. One of her uncles found her some at the beach to play with one night while she awaits one of her very own (you know, one that doesn’t need to live in the water). 6> I have always wanted to be a better drawer and I have been wanting a new logo for a while. I decided to just try and see what I could come up with. I found with some better drawing supplies I pleasantly surprised myself with how I could do. Hopefully one of these will be my new logo soon.
7> Our garden has continued to give us all kinds of yummies. Especially our tomato plant as of late. I’m so glad I actually stuck to it this year and really tried. The girls have been much more excited to eat their veggies when they go and pick them from the garden all by themselves. 8> Another pic of my family having fun in Kemah. 9> We went to a Lego store for the very first time and I think you can see the “big kid” of the family was in Lego heaven! He was one of those kids who was really into them and he still really likes them. Maybe I should get him some for Father’s Day? 10> With the girls getting older, we have been trying to incorporate them more into the big people chores. It’s usually so much easier and faster to just do things ourselves, but they need to learn. Plus they actually enjoy it right now, so we definitely need to take advantage of that.
