With Brad leaving the house as the sun comes up each morning and me leaving for tutoring the moment he walks in the door 4 days a week, sometimes it feels as though we don’t get enough time as a family. Luckily, this weekend we’ve done a pretty good job of making the most of our time together. After yesterday’s movie afternoon and family sleepover, this afternoon we decided to crafty with a simple life-sized self-portrait project.
Oh my goodness…. This little lady is all about writing books right now. It started one day near the end of summer just after I had made a little book for her. After making one for me in return, she and Brad teamed up to create several books for family members, he as the scribe and she as the illustrator and storyteller. Since then, the fascination has continued… We have all sorts of books by Gracen around the house, ‘The Magical Keychain’ and ‘Life in Kuwait’ included. Until the just a couple of days ago, all of her stories had been of the freeform variety, but when I saw this little I Am Special printable book, I knew that she’d love it.
