This has been such a hot week, and I don’t function well in heat. My children have been enjoying the heat – they’ve had a couple of water fights. I was able to get some sewing and scrapbooking accomplished, and tomorrow we’re having a scrapbook party (all day) at my house. I always have fun and get so much done at these all day parties.
I’ve also been doing a lot of reading because it’s not a “hot” activity.
One of the things that I sewed was this clutch for my middle daughter. I made it to match the dress I recently made for her. You can find the pattern and directions here.
I found a couple of things I want to do for my little ones for when we have a rainy day, and they have to stay inside.
I have a couple for camping too. I was not introduced to camping until after I was married, but I enjoy it which really surprised me.
The next time we go, I really want to try this version of s’mores.
Here’s a post with some organizing help for your camping trip.
I struggle to get my children to run around our backyard barefoot, but it’s so healthy that I keep pressing them to take their shoes off.
My mom’s cat is so desperate to get outside that she’s even willing to put up with the indignity of a harness and leash. Here’s she’s enjoying some time with my five-year-old son.
How was your week this summer?
