It's Making it Count Tuesday! Every week, Pam and Sarah are co-hosting the Making it Count Tuesday link-up. Start with any one of those fabulous ideas you have found online. Then, do it. Make it. Cook it. Create it. Take it from the screen, give it life and let it bless your world. When you're done, snap a photo, write about it and share it with us. Make your time online count.
I have been so excited to participate in this. I had just discovered Pinterest when we moved. Now we are just beginning to have moments of being settled. I have a couple things in the works and have made some new recipes but no pictures of them. This was easy and definitely needed. I have four younger brothers. Relating to a girl is something I have little experience in expect being one myself. So, this is great way for my oldest daughter and hopefully my other daughter (and future daughters) and I to keep the lines of communication open. Amelia and I went shopping at Michaels and found this cute journal.
I wrote in the front cover dedicating this book to us. And I hope it is one of many!
Then, I wrote a letter (I have to be honest, being my first I used the guideance of those who went before me and copied their letter). I found the idea at Mamajennblogs.com who found it at confessionsofahomeschooler.com who found it at The Homeschool Post who doesn't remember where she got the idea from.
Basically, it asks Amelia if she would like to be my pen pal. I write to her and leave it on her bed and she writes to me and leaves it on my bed. I am so excited for her to do this with me. My oldest son chimed in that he would like to do this too with his father but there might be a communication gap due to my husband's penmanship. I think it would be fun to do a Mother and Son book as well but I will leave that up to my husband to decide. I don't want to take that away from him.
