Here is what we have been up to.
-I started my own sewing blog, SEW WHILE THEY GROW....... GO FOLLOW ME. I am still going to be working on A Couple of Craft Addicts but I wanted a blog that was just mine where I could share sewing tutorials, projects, and other parenting related posts.
-with the beginning of a new blog I have decided to start a new branch of my business, pattern making. I finished my first pattern this week and am ready to launch it in my shop next week. This is very challenging but so exciting for me.
-We have been going to lots of playdates. Between the mom's group, baby sitting co-ops, church functions, and just getting together with friends we have an activity planned for nearly every day of the week.
-Jackson has been making huge strides in his writing and drawing skills. He wanted to make sure I documented that he can now write his own name and he can make stick figures. Here is his latest creation:
I love that his pictures now have sustainance and are not just scribbles. :)
-We also started doing chores around the house and the kids get money for completing their chores. These include helping with the dishes, cleaning up the toy room, putting their clothes away once they are washed and folded, and feeding the guinea pigs. Jackson earned $3 over the past 2 weeks so today we went and bought a new sword (his choice, my words were "ANOTHER SWORD?"). He has been begging me to buy it for him and so I told him to earn it himself. He wasn't too happy to give me his money for the sword but then I think he realized he can earn more so that gave him hope.
-Jack has also been riding his big boy bike a lot and getting better. Maybe he will be ready to take off the training wheels by the end of the summer!
-Finally I took some pictures of the kids in front of the house. They love having their picture taken. Jackson has been taking pictures himself lately. His interests are expanding so much. It makes me really excited for what the summer has to hold.
Obsessed with Superheroes. Showing me his HULK impression.
