"I think I know what we are going to do today Mom"
I am a mother of two rambunctious boys ages 9 and 2. I also have a chronic autoimmune disease which has changed my life around. I cannot do the things I used to. I do not want my kids to feel like they miss out on things. We have been using Pinterest frequently. It is a treasure chest of inspiration. We pin and pin and pin! Then they sit there....on the bulletin board. These great creative ideas that scream at me and make me desire to be more creative! I think I can do that! I cannot do a lot of things but I can do some things! I just have to change some! I am not working currently due to the disease. This summer I want to make fun! I want it to be one they remember! So...our goal is to take one of the creative ideas we have pinned a day and complete it. A pin a day. This can be a little one, a big one, just something to break up the summer days and do things that we normally would not! We can do it! These ideas are from the creative minds on pinterest and we hope you enjoy them! 86 days of Summer!!!

We have been saving all sorts of things we normally recycle. Cans are one of them. We intend to make a can caddy and have them all put together but Carter is adamant that he do each one himself so we have only gotten started. He wants to put 6 together and fill them for his new teacher. For the first one he simply used duck tape and gems and glued them on. I kept wanting to stick my hands in to help but he kept getting mad! :) We will keep adding until we show you the final project!
