I am realizing that my older girls don't quite squeal with excitement anymore when I tell them that we are going to craft or make something. They like to check it out, but they are seriously so busy now-a-days that they can't really enjoy it like they used to - sad, huh?
BUT...that doesn't stop me and I still have my other two - Bailey and Parker-
who get into whatever I have whipped up!
Today, I taught them how to make Pumpkin suckers out of tootsie pops, tissue paper and floral tape. They turned out pretty cute!
With the older two girls, I am finding myself doing new things with them and enjoying being with them! Tonight, Maddie and I headed over to the Scripps Ranch Club and we swam laps. I told Maddie that I was going to swim a mile and I never thought that she would do the same ,
but sure enough - She did it!
She was pretty excited to have reached something that she once thought was very difficult.
