Summer Diaries: More Rock Painting Fun with Kiddos…

We wrote up a few inspirational and other messages this morning on the rocks that we painted yesterday. Love how these turned out but more than anything I love the process of sitting with my kids around the table with cell phones and television and other distractions turned off, enjoying each other’s full presence, and working on a creative project together ❤️. .

I have most of this week and some of next week off from work. I am really trying to enjoy these last few days of summer break with my kids before their school starts in the middle of next week. What a fun summer we had! Where did it all go? If I could slow down the clock and really stretch these precious moments of love and connection with my kids!

Self Care Sunday: Rock Pouring Experiments With Kids…

Self Care Sunday: Rock pouring experiments with kids…we didn’t quite get the technique right but we covered ourselves with paint, wanted a bit more paint than I would like, made a whole lot of mess, and had a lot of fun doing this together. It’s always rewarding to me as a mother to walk into the basement first thing in the morning and find the projects that I worked on with my kids the previous day all dried out and ready for display 💕
