Weekend started with some Saturday soccer, our new normal.
Babygirl did sooo good. As a thoughtful loving little person, she has struggled a little bit with the aggressiveness that soccer requires. She sees the kids she plays with, as teammates and friends. That’s a great thing! I love that she understands teamwork and sharing, but when it comes down to playing against each other we needed her to just get out there and fight for the ball.
And this Saturday she did! She jumped in the thick of it all, and kicked the ball out and really showed the progress in her ball handling skills. I was super impressed! And she was happy to receive all the praise I was giving.
I made sure to get some arts and crafts time with her in so we could do an activity together.
She’s been obsessed with painting lately because she has been gifted lots of art supplies, so we painted this bird house.
Also at Hobby Lobby , i was able to pick up some ink and bibs… because I’m taking calligraphy up.
What’s that? I’m crazy you say? When do you even have the time to play with calligraphy pens???
Yes I know. But hear me out, I love doodling and writing. I’ve got pens and markers and brushes galore. I love the feel of pen on paper and making the words attractive to look at. And I can’t just have baking as a hobby, because let’s be honest I can’t eat all my kitchen creations. Especially when my wedding is on the horizon. So in an effort to ease my restless soul/hands I’ve decided to delve into the world of artistic lettering.
How cool would it be to do fancy wedding envelopes for people? Or do those gorgeous wedding signs that are becoming so popular? I know that’s super forward thinking of me, to already be crafting another business venture but clearly when I do something I just jump all the way in.
I started an Instagram for it in case you wanted to check out my newest non edible art.
