Just another day

In defiance of the sickness that has overtaken us for the past 2wks, we decided it was time for some outdoor fun. Today the kids & I got outside to enjoy the park. It was nice to see them running, laughing, & energetic again. I'd almost forgotten what that was like. The simple things!! We're not fully ourselves as of yet, but we're getting there. It was a good day.

Here I am...

I'm back. It's been a while since I've been around, but I'm still here. I have high hopes to be a more consistent blogger in the future. For now, I'll post an interesting use of my Crop a Dile 2. My oldest daughter has been having fine motor issues related to her seizures. I went to the store in search of lacing activities for her to practice. We found some toddler version lacing games, but they seemed too simplistic for her. I kept looking it over (thick foam shapes) & pondering how I could make more holes in it to increase the challenge. Then it came to me, I have a Crop a Dile long reach!! It was just sitting back there in my little craft space waiting for a great calling. It worked wonders. Of course, we all know my Madison is thrilled that I made the game harder for her. She'll just get the beginning course on "what's harder makes you stronger"!! Gotta love it. Well, that's all for now. I'll add pics later to make this more entertaining. Till later....go Crop a Dile!!!!!
