Sometimes the simply activities done together are so much more rewarding then the big ones. Yesterday we made cake pops. So many steps... So much time...so much sugar! It was all just a bit too much and then today after cleaning bathrooms we sat down for a little bit of drawing.

I was sewing when I looked up to find Logan sitting on the table next to me minus pants.
He sat there quietly playing with his ninja turtle toys when I said "Logan can you put on pants your penis is staring at me." To this he picked it up, looked it over and then smiled and shook his head "naw."
Then he went back to his toys. I am certain this conversation will come back to haunt me in the near future.
Ok so I have been sewing... This was a request from Logan. Pants and a shirt out of some stash Star Wars fabric. I have to say the shirt is home made and sometimes this is a good thing....this time no so much:) I blew the collar and gave up opting for bias tape. I also should have gone up a size. He couldn't care less. The shorts with giant pocket are always a hit and I know he will wear them out. He is pleased which always makes it a home run for me! Mission accomplished.

Mornings are always so rushed. Get here, do that. It seems the to do list never ends. Every once in awhile I feel the pause, the breath at the inhale and the exhale and I try to tell myself be in this moment and not thinking, or doing. Today in this moment I had guests. The birds in the trees, the squirrels on the fence and Polly at my side.
Exhale.... Momma! And then it all begins.

Logan typically has his own logic. He wears his pjs over his clothes on days he is going to school to save time, he carries his shoes around so he can have them ready at all times and he cleans his room before bed which consists of putting EVERYTHING in the closet. I love my little man!

We planned to go out to Battle Ground Lake and then as always had to change plans. To the river and through the sand. So close to us is this place and so easy. Wet and tired two minutes to home. Polly went for her first swim and over and over into the water she went. A true water dog. Then she blasted up and down the beach at full speed. What a beautiful sight. The kids scouted for fairies and are sure they found a few of their drawings in the trunks of trees. Lovely and restful perfect for a Sunday.

Beautiful book, cute, simple projects. I made the LuLu tunic. It turned out ok directions were not simple to follow if you are in the beginner clothing sewing range like I am. I need to take a class on getting a good fit. I measured ect but its a bit bulgy in the wrong places and the collar was a bit too high for me. Overall I would still mark it as a success.
