I worked in Extended Session at church today, which is our program for preschool children after Sunday School and during the worship service. I was in the three year old class all by myself, but I have to say this was the easiest experience I've ever had with working Extended Session. I just had five kids, all were sweethearts, and I actually enjoyed myself. Time got away from me because we were having fun, and we were right in the middle of a craft project when parents started coming to pick up. Usually, I've got them all lined up sitting on the wall waiting on parents about 10 minutes before church lets out!
In between the craft show and church, I have sewed like a crazy woman this weekend. I am trying to get caught up on orders, but I'm beginning to think I'm never going to get *really* caught up, which I guess is a good problem to have. I have to say though, it's amazing what I can get accomplished when my girls nap simultaneously for two and a half hours!
Presley promoted out of the baby room at church and into the toddler room a few Sundays ago. It's been a good change for her, as there's a little more going on in there, and she's done really well and actually seems happier when I drop her off. Today after church, I was emptying her diaper bag, and I found a coloring page she did that they had sent home. I'm not embarrassed to say that I got a lump in my throat...her first Sunday School craft! It is already put up in the baby book or I would take a picture and post it.
I had promised Mattie that she could get her face painted at the craft show yesterday. But, wouldn't you know that there was no face painting booth! Either that or I just never saw it. It caused some tears, so I promised her that I would paint her face when we got home. Being a mama of my word, we got out the craft paints as soon as we got home, and I gave her a perfect Mickey. Not really, I gave her a purple blob outlined in pink that if you squint at it, kinda looks like Mickey. But she loved it! See:
And finally, we have entered the world of Silly Bandz.
I'm way out of the loop on these, and don't even know where to buy them. These were a gift from Mattie's Nana, and she wears them everywhere. The funny thing to me is, she has about twice as many as what's on her wrist in this picture, but she only selected the ones that matched her outfit to wear that day. Ever the fashion diva!
