This is why I love to blog...

I love blogging so much but I love it when I know I've inspired someone.  Inspired them in their walk with God or to be a better parent or even as simple as a craft with their kids or a meal for the family.  

Today I received a touching email and I had to share it because it made my morning.  I will keep her anonymous but THANK-you for encouraging me to keep sharing!  Here is the email: 

Hi April!  Thank you so much – this is awesome!  I am so happy I came across your blog via Twitter – I really enjoy it.  I also wanted to you to know how much I enjoyed your post “Forgiveness at 2 am”. I have a little girl close in age to your daughter (mine is almost 4), and I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I haven’t been great about teaching her the concept of forgiveness (well, at home, anyway. She goes to a Christian preschool and she hears it at church – but I need to reinforce it at home too).  I guess I figured she’d learn it at age 5/6. Your post inspired me to remember the importance of the Gospel basics (even for preschoolers) and I’m going to get her a special kids’ Bible this week.

God bless!

I pray your daughter will love her new Bible and God continues to grow in her heart and he would guide you as you raise your Princess of the MOST HIGH!  

AAAAHHHHH!  LOVED IT!!! God- Thanks for all the blessings you continue to shower me with.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
