Where I was 10 years ago...

I know each American knows exactly where they were when the attacks of 9/11/01 occurred.  I was a senior in high school and I was one of the first ones in school to hear about the attacks as I was in a weight lifting class and we have the radio blasting as we work out.  I know our teacher was confused and left for a minute and we all stopped lifting looked confused and headed to the locker room.  My next class was science class and our classes combined with history and we turned on the TV and discussed and watched everything on the news.  At that moment I was still in shock and had no emotions.  When I got home from school that day I sat down with my mom and we both shared some tears.  It seemed like the week went by slow as we continued to see the replay on the news of the towers falling.  I know we were praying for more survivors to be found and watched waiting to hear that a life was saved.  
The cross that was left at ground zero. 

"I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!” Psalm 121:1-2 NLT

There were some brave hero's that day!  I pray today that families who lost a loved one that day have a healed heart and now have a relationship with Jesus and a testimony to share!

I had the opportunity to visit ground 0 in 2003 when I went on a road trip with  college friend and her mom and brother.  We had a great time but we made sure to stop at ground 0.  Almost 2 years had passed and it was still a major clean up.

Where were you?

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
