Today I had the opportunity to volunteer at the girls school. Something unheard of at their old school, so I was very excited to be included! My job was to help each of the students in the girl's class paint egg cartons green. I was surprised at how adventuresome they are with their projects; giant paper mache panda bears and egg carton crocodiles. If I was their teacher, I don't think I would be that ambitious.
We are on our way this weekend to enjoy some relaxing time at our Acorn Cottage! One thing I am changing from the last times we've visited the cabin is having a more organized playtime. My girls just don't understand the word "relax" and I've already made the mistake of not bringing enough things for them to do! I am determined to find some "me" moments this weekend.
To help them pack, I made a picture list of what they needed to bring and they packed their own bags! I had them talk to each other about what they wanted to do or play with at the cabin and what they came up with is in the photo list below. I am taking this with me during those moments when there is "nothing to do". Hopefully this will help them come up with their own ideas. Last resort, we hop in the van and take a drive! Scratch that, Craig take the girls for a drive and I take a nap!
Do you use cucumbers for puffy eyes?
Do you volunteer at you child's school?
How is everyone!??
