"Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns. See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way." Psalm 139:23-24
Connor has been wanting to give up his naps lately...but since he's soo cranky on the days he doesn't nap I'm not too crazy about that idea. Yesterday was one of those days...I finally loaded the kids up in the car around 6:30 in the evening and they both passed out for an hour while I drove around looking at houses for sale.
When they woke up I stopped at a park for some fun before dinner. I had my new camera with me so I was able to get a few pics while they ran around enjoying the playground. I can't wait to familiarize myself with this camera and improve my photography skills. I recently took some photos for our church's website, and I was supposed to take more but my old camera started malfunctioning. Hopefully with this new one I can get back to work on that!
This is the Cheep Cheep Sean chose to model his "box" after. He liked the mohawk/fin! We already had the plastic fish bowl, and only needed a few inexpensive items from Michael's to complete our task. We bought a few acrylic craft paints, chenille wire stems for the yellow fins, and sticky-back felt squares for the white fins. Please excuse the blurry cell photo, it's the only one I got while we worked. Oops. Sean painted the body red, and then I painted the eyes on top and pink mouth along the rim of the bowl. I drew the white fin shape on paper plates, and then used that as a template to cut the felt.
