I'm not good with crafts and kids. The children are, for the most part, deprived. They have lovely Grandmas that are willing and even eager to clean up after them, so that's where the painting and glitter and glue generally take place.
I have two friends in Germany. One of which is my husband. He's away talking to other people about math in California. My other friend, well, I would like to keep her that way, so I'm not hounding her saying "let us in, let us in!" I've only showed up unannounced on her doorstep once, actually.
Disclaimer #2: I'm not a fan of taking them out in public either. They scream, people look, it's not fun. Maybe that's why I only have two friends??
I guess I'll mention (I don't like to brag) that they do have an in-house language instructor come in every afternoon. That I can do.
When pitted against each other, crafting seemed like the lesser evil compared to public shrieking. I have delved deep into scrapbook mommy territory searching and have come up with a few good ones. My favourite was this owl print. Simple, not too messy and pretty enough to hang on the wall.
Claudia looks thrilled!
Claudia told Aaron last night that "she didn't miss him that much", so yeah, I'm going to take that as a compliment. Check out Pinterest
