For starting off summer and still having something scheduled every day including ball practices and scrimmage games, birthday parties, dance classes and recitals, we managed to get quite a bit done around here too.
First up, I made this little onesie for my brother-in-law for Father's Day. My sister called and asked me if I could put this quote on a onesie to give to him. He's a big Star Wars fan like the rest of the
Next up, I got all of my bee blocks done for my Nubees swap. I've still got my Modern Blocks and do. Good Stitches blocks to make, but progress has to start somewhere. I chose to make simple star blocks this month, but used this cool tutorial I found on pinterest.
This week we also picked a bucket full of blackberries that the kids and I turned into a pint of seedless blackberry jam. I forgot to take a picture of it, but imagine a pint-sized jar full of blackberry jam and you're getting a real good idea. ;) It was fun to teach the kids what goes into canning and how food is made. I see more canning in Emma's future...for Oren, I see eating what we've canned in his. haha
And, last night and tonight, we're finishing up a great year of ballet for Emma. Her recital is this weekend. She did SOOOOO GREAT last night. She is a little bit of a Nervous Nelly a lot of the time, but when she's on stage, she just does her thing. She got worried yesterday afternoon that she couldn't remember the routine, but I told her that every single person in that audience, whether they knew her or not, was rooting for her and was proud to see her get up there and to just have fun and go for it and she and her class did. They were absolutely beautiful and I was so proud of her.
Next weekend is Emma's all-star district tournament, so we've got 3 practices next week, but dance will be over and I don't think we have any birthday parties scheduled, so it looks like our swimming and sewing time may open up a little. ;) Sounds like paradise to me!
I hope each of you has a great weekend! Enjoy your time. :)
