Fun little project that doesn't take a lot of time and helps with fine motor skills for Claire. I cut out small squares of tissue paper and had her crinkle them up and then she made lines for branches with black paint then glued the pink tissue blossoms onto branches! Easy peasy! After they dried she wrote inside.
I like to do card projects with Claire because it's fun and she gets to practice her writing!
This year summer was hard for me, the loss of my sister created a huge void and left an aching heart, yet I feel like I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer, there are so many things I love about it, I love sitting on my patio in the morning with a cup of coffee and taking in the sights, sounds, smells. The quietness, the simplicity, the beauty, thoughts of simpler days, summers playing jump rope and hide and seek, bike rides and fireflies, many years gone, yet so vivid. Holding on, letting go, all the while Fall is quietly stepping in, Oh how I love fall, yet this year it feels like I'm being forced to move on not yet ready to let go of the summer but needing the refreshing colors and sights of fall, a season I love most, the soothing healing my heart so longs for, so I too step softly into a new season not only of fall but of life...
Blessing to all of you. Wendy
