I can't believe that this is what I get to look at every morning.
I also get to look at these:
One last thing...some fall crafty goodness for you:
Tessa and I made fall mandalas (of sorts). Here's my creation... leaves and acorns glued on to a paper plate. Sophisticated art, people. I'm kinda bummed that all my leaves turned completely brown. I mean, I know they do that, but they were bright yellow and red when I picked them up off of the ground.
Tessa insisted on using a frog plate.
And this is our "Thank Bank", an idea snatched from Parents Magazine.
Everyday for the next month, James, Tessa and I will write on a little colorful card one thing we're thankful for and put it in the Thank Bank. At the end of the month I'll string them all up to make a colorful string of garland. It's ridiculously cheesy, but I think this is a fun way for Tessa to learn. Yesterday Tessa's card said "I'm thankful for God, and I like Jack."
So, that's what's up with us. What's new with y'all?
