Mom, Boys, Museum

To celebrate Alexander finishing Kindergarten with such success, I took him and Emmett up to North Hampton MA to the Eric Carle Museum.  Hannah was still in school so I thought it might be a bit easier with just the 2 boys.  We had a very special day getting to know this wonderful illustrator a little better, enjoying the well stocked library, creating our own pieces of art and having a picnic lunch out on the grounds.

An Improved Birthday

Alexander has always loved the monthly Home Depot Kids Workshops.  As soon as he learned how to read a calendar he sat down and marked the first Saturday of every month with an "HD" to remind everyone about the workshop.  We have even been on vacation in RI and he has gone to workshops there, with cousins in tow!  When it came time for his birthday party we were thrilled to be able to have it at the Glastonbury store.  The kids were given their own orange aprons and then able to chose between a sailboat or an herb planter.  They worked so hard and did a great job, it was a very special day for all.

Back in April we had Emmett baptized on a very special day with our friends and family.  After all 3 of our children were baptized I saved the water, not sure what to do with it but also thinking it shouldn't just go down the drain.  I finally had some time to think about this and came up with a great solution.  Check back soon to see the finished project!
