Kindness Advent Day #2

Kindness Advent Day #2

Thank you so much for all the love yesterday! We’re thrilled you like the new song & can’t wait to get the EP in your hands (or your inbox…whatever!;)

This morning, we threw down a little homemade bookmark love. My kids are craft crazy, so they were happy to oblige! I was having a conversation with a friend (who also homeschools) a few months ago & when I mentioned that I didn’t have a laminator, she looked at me like I had 3 eyeballs! I really have needed one so many times, so I finally broke down & bought one last month. We may have a slight obsession with our “waminator”…we’ve sealed just about everything in this house!

Then we headed over to the library to hide our bookmarks.

Of course Grady tracked down his favorite book (& mine) for his log cabin bookmark!:)

& we couldn’t get out of there without renting a few books ourselves (as Jett would say!)

I hope you are enjoying this holiday season & that it’s not swallowing you up! On that note…just remember that whatever you have decided to do as a family this year…a kindness advent, a devotion, a Jesse tree, a gift a day, Santa, Elf on the Shelf, or a big fat nothing…just own it. You are doing the best you can to make this season special and memorable for your kiddos – and it will be! Stop putting undue pressure and unrealistic expectations on yourself. We Mamas can be so hard on ourselves and there is only so much time in the day…don’t waste it fretting over what anyone else is doing or what you’re not doing. Whatever you’re doing is enough! Just give yourself permission to be present and in the moment for the next 23 days.

Alright, alright…I’ll jump off my soapbox now. Just wanted to encourage you a little bit tonight! Much love to you all!!
