This is my project for helping the kids see the positive aspects of 2018. For the entire year, every time they had a success in some part of their life, I either took a picture, wrote it down or physically took it and put it in the shoe box. I gave them their shoe boxes on January 1st, 2019 so they could look back at their successes.
The success could be as simple as "you were patient while our flight was delayed for 5 hours. Thank you". It was fun for me to go through this with them as I had forgotten some of the successes. This year, I hope to add pictures to their box this year as well.
Happy Friday! Our tyes come in all different colors to more easily engage the kid or help differentiate colors and sides. Don't like blue and white? What colors would you like to see? We will make a sample and put it up on IG!
A custom color pair we did in 2018. I truly loved it and working with the client on shades etc. As you can see, this was a tri-colored Tye. One side was blue, one side pink and the middle was purple.
Have a marvelous Monday.
A little pre-Christmas humor. In three days we can all start trying to relax... after we help the kids get their toys out from the box, get the batteries in the toys, replace the batteries that have already run out and kept decent food in their bellies. THEN we relax. Follow @the.dad.abides for more humor
Happy Thursday everyone! Did you know GT kids have some of the same issues that kids living with autism do? Not many people realize that. We like that our shoelaces can help ANY child learn to tie shoes.
I am finding quite a few odd signs around the holidays. I found this one in the grocery store. While peanuts and peanut butter do have some protein, I do not know that I would advocate candy as a good source of protein on the go. Has anyone else found any weird signs?
Happy Monday morning! We had a busy weekend. We delivered our gifts to the local giving tree. One of my kids even used his own money to buy the gifts. I thought that was very thoughtful of him. It took all of the money that he had to buy gifts for someone in need.what else did we do? We went to a bat mitzvah, my eldest got his hair cut for the first time in three years and we made gingerbread houses. What did you do?
Last summer when we dropped eldest at camp for the last time. We nicely embarrassed him with a "goth" sister (who was way too happy for a goth), a weird little brother (who had pom poms from his forehead to his nape of neck) and just a weird mom. To say he was mortified is putting it nicely. Do you purposely embarrass YOUR kids?
This time last Sunday, I was feeling kinda bad, after preaching last Sunday, it seemed to have gotten worst, BUT GOD!!! This morning I’m feeling a whole lot better, I’m can’t wait to Grace the pulpit once again!!! Look forward to a great time at “THE EDGE” this morning!!!
I have passed the torch. My yearly making of whiskey balls was interrupted by my 10 y.o. asking if he could do it. So with supervision (and a math lesson here and there) he made our traditional whiskey balls. They are quite good, too. I keep testing them to make sure they haven't gone "bad". 😀
For those inquiring minds, this is a holiday treat handed down from my great-grandmother. It is nilla wafers, pecans, cocoa, and she used rum, I use whiskey.
