Desert Diorama: FridayFavs

This wispy thing called time flies by when you're having fun.
Or not.
Or when your kids are sick.
And this week as flown by.
For all those reasons and more.
Though we I did sneak in a few special moments with one of my favourite little men.
We decided to take a morning (while sister nursed a sore throat by staying in bed, listening to Adventures in Odyssey and reading) to build
a desert diorama.
Like most things in our life, it was pretty much a mess to begin with.
But like my mom is forever saying,
"Sometimes you gotta make a mess to make a thang better."
Did you hear the Southern drawl??
And tada. Something to feel good about.
It's actually a desert with an oasis.
Pretty brilliant, I know.
Ok, maybe not but good enough for this mess of a home.
And this handsome boy, he smiled big.
Cause accomplishment always feels good.
Even in the small things.
Maybe especially then.

    1. Thanks Heidi! It was one of those spur-of-the-moment-I'd-rather-not-teach-math-today kinda projects. :0) I'm sure you can understand!
