Father’s Day Craft

This summer I have been working as a nanny for three precious kiddos. I wanted to have them make something for father’s day (this post is quite late, I know) that would be something at least slightly useful, as well as meaningful to their dad. He works at a nursery, so after much thought I decided to have them decorate some planters. I found a white, triple herb planter at Target, and then bought some permanent markers and let the kids loose! I helped them plant some red petunias once they were done drawing, and then after they watered the plants we sat back and admired their work (for 5 seconds before something else caught their attention).

73/366 – Handprint

My internet became nonexistent when I went to upload my picture last night, and I was too exhausted to try to get it working, so here is yesterday’s picture.

I nanny for a 4 year old and 18 month old, so of course handprints are all over anything glass. The morning light was hitting this one and it caught my eye so I snapped of a few pictures while I waited for the boys to wake up.

133/365 – Oh to be young again…

I have been fairly stressed and anxious about the future and things like that lately. I know that I shouldn’t be, because my future is in the hands of the Creator. But it is so hard to completely give up that control. I hadn’t used textures in a while, but decided that it would be appropriate for this picture to give a sense of┬ánostalgia.
