And we just barely got it up on the wall.
We’ll always have our family motto of course, which we refer to often (more on that HERE), but as we anticipated all the things we wanted to gain and learn here as a family during this semester we figured it would help to put it all into something concise and all-encompassing. So that’s what we came up with.
We want to take advantage of this time to really read like crazy, to develop writing skills (especially in journals), and to “Shine” (which is my “word” for the year which I’m sharing with my family because it just fits).
Let’s look at that little puppy a little closer just to appease me:
There we go.
The kids all helped make that thing.
Claire helped paint the “Light.”
Ha! She decided that little theme was important enough to paint for one of her art projects at school.
And in another burst of creative energy decorating her room, she felt it was important to do another rendition there.
Would love to see whenever you have a time a list of your kids favorite books (to help with Christmas gift ideas 😉 I know you've had blog posts on books but would love to see what the 5 of them all think are their top ten or top five favorites!
You and Dave are amazing parents…thanks for all the tidbits 😉
Just got off the boat and it's so great to see what you're doing. We've been feeling pretty unconnected!
I LOVE this! Thank you for the inspiration! xo
