This has been a fun week!! I’m not sure who’s more excited about a fun project the kids and I have been working on…me or the kids?
I was helping a friend of mine organize her school room last week and I came across a project her son had created. It was an arctic diorama. It was so cool!! It got me really excited and inspired to tackle a project like this with my kids.
