Today has been such a wonderful follow up to such a fun day yesterday. It was all about Quinn yesterday and she knew it! Her idea for bags to give her friends when they left was cute...she made "mini" crayons and added her business card and a silly band and then personalized each of the bags. Speaking of her crayons, I don't think I have blogged about what she is doing!
Quinn's Etsy store online.
Oh, and a precious moment from today that really shows how her heart is being shaped, I told her Celine Dion just had twins (don't judge-Quinn knows who has the most beautiful voice in the whole wide world...actually, she said it was me so maybe she doesn't know.) And her response was, "Cool! Are they the same color as her? Like, did they come from tummy or did she adopt them?" I LOVE that her almost 5 year old brain goes there! When I was four I would have just assumed all babies come from the mom they live with. She knows how family can be built.
Quinn's friend Avenue spent the night (first time anyone has spent the night that was not from out of town) and they were so cute to listen to as the giggled themselves to sleep. And actually, they were quite cute to listen to as they woke up giggling at 4AM!!!! Avenue is staying with us until tonight so the fun has continued and the kids are enjoying the nice weather.
I have spent the day working on things around the home that I feel like I never have time to get to. I've been making my own Accountability Kids cards and hanging system. I'd heard several good things about this "chore system" so I thought I'd give it a try. Buuut, seeing as we are on the adoption budget I am making my own. Let me just say, there has been a lot of cutting, laminating and painting going on here. I'll take a picture once I get it finished and hanging up. If you can afford it I would recommend just buying the kit, it would save a lot of time! :)
