My big news this week is the launch of the Small Hands Creating Hope project! We have raised $435 so far for the American Cancer Society, and Emma is putting our copy of the book to good use, trying out all of the amazing crafts! Please share this project, and contribute if you can. Every dollar makes a difference!
The rain let up for a few days this week, and the kids had a BLAST playing outside! Mike purchased an outdoor table and benches at IKEA as a very fabulous Mother’s Day gift for me, and we have been putting them to good use eating outdoors as much as possible. I have plans to craft outside this summer, too!
The real motivation for our IKEA trip was to pick up a dresser for Baby #4. The kids LOVED helping dad put it together! I think Lily was a little concerned about it not being finished and dad playing around with the camera instead of working on it, in this picture.
Saturday we had a fun time meeting up with Alex, Valerie, and Nico from Glittering Muffins! I was very impressed with Nico’s ability to join in with my kids’ play – all four kids had a great time! They brought us some Canadian delicacies, so the kids are going to be learning a lot about Canadian treats this week – they are VERY excited about that! They are also loving their French books – thank you, Valerie!
