When we first got married I begged Brent for a dog.
What was I thinking?!?!
My dad was wise and knew that we did not need a dog...
Why? Oh why did I not listen to him?!
Anyway, shortly after we were married, my dad gifted us with the "perfect dog."
Not to be confused with...
One night this week, I found that the perfect dog had been accessorized.
I am pretty sure I know who was responsible.
She is a pretty awesome accessorizer after all.
As one of my goals for this year, I am trying to be more intentional about learning/teaching/growing opportunities with the kids.... I am hoping to foster an environment for learning rather than my typical M.O. which is often... just a whole-hearted attempt to keep everyone alive.
I plan to utilize the blog as a means of accountability. So, this week we broke out the clay to do a little sculpting. Mr. Jenkins declined participation and chose instead to watch Despicable Me.
But Sassy, Chilli and I played with some clay. Well... Sassy and I did. Chilli kinda ate it.
Sassy made a number of these...
Which she called, "poozels"... well, technically, "baby poozles" because, obviously... these are small poozles.
And speaking of clay... I was blessed to be able to take a fall mini-session at our local art studio at the end of the year. I love handbuilding and made a few things that I am actually proud of! I know this is 'fess up Friday, so I really shouldn't be bragging, but will you let me show you a few of my "creations"?
|I was especially proud of how thin this one was.|
Okay... thank you for allowing me that.
I'll leave you with a video of Chilli. She has been starting to "talk" a bit recently. I can't imagine why she has learned this phrase so well...
