Alas! A tiny craft day...

It's my first week with the kids alone since Rick has gone back to work. Today I thought it was time we try making a little craft or two since it's been awhile. I remember having many craft times with Natalie when she was younger and I do wish we had more time like that again. Now, with an almost five month old little brother, it's possible just with a little extra patience from all of us. After we had breakfast and our morning devotional, we brought out papers, scissors, glue and a couple of washed tin cans to make flower pots. During our time of cutting paper, gluing, taking care of and feeding Finn (Momma's job exclusively) we had a great conversation about baptism, faith and other things.
While waiting for glue to dry on our tins she began to draw a bear for her marker (with inspirational help from The Black Apple's Paper Doll Primer and Sachiko Umoto's Let's Draw Cute Animals, photo above). I also wanted her to make another marker, a banner to have a word of encouragement. She decided on BRAVE and made known that she also liked it because it referenced her new favorite movie by the same name. I decided on THANKFUL as a good reminder and a rabbit to go with it. Hopefully we will finish our tin cans turned flower pots tomorrow and continue to find ways to be creative and have fun while learning to adapt to our new lifestyle with another child :)
