The boys are growing up quick! I love that they are walking and exploring more. With all the rain we have been having, it is greener and greener outside. I love it!

I absolutely LOVE the blog “Growing a Jeweled Rose.” So many amazingly creative activities are posted on that site! I can’t wait to try them out with the boys when they get older!

Growing a Jeweled Rose posted how to Make Homemade Floam!! I bet the kids will love this!
Just came across a fantastic blog called http://www.growingajeweledrose.com. It’s full of creative ideas for early childhood! It is a great resource for nannies and parents!
