I love to do crafts and have cute handouts and activities for church (and school, and friends, and - well you get the idea). I don't consider myself creative, but often use the help of others' talents. I decided to share what I'm doing for others just like me. It may be a link to where I found something or it might even be something *I* created. Right now I work as a paraprofessional at my kids' elementary - in special ed (autism). I started creating items for my 3rd graders this year and can't wait to share them with you. I am the 1st counselor in YW (first time in YW is this past year). I also have ideas for cub scouts and sunbeams posted, my previous callings.

Why I've Been Gone

Spring break was the perfect time to get caught up on the blog, right.  Nope.  This year was a busy time.  My family (most of whom I hadn't seen for 3 years including 2 nephews I hadn't met) came out for my Boo's baptism.  Before Spring Break I had been busy getting ready for the baptism, watching General Conference and getting ready for visitors (I think a birthday was in there too).  After spring break I've been trying to get caught up on everything that I missed and start planting a garden.  Here are some of my distractions:
Baptism Pictures in between sessions on Sunday:

 Dyeing Eggs with the Cousins on Friday:

Baptism on Saturday (longer post coming with printables):

Followed by time at the park:

Then it was Easter:

The next day we went to the Zoo:

We also had a picnic lunch, swimming, touring a civil war house, an attempt at cousin pictures, a day of shopping & lunch, and much more.  It was a fun week and I miss my family again, but it was so good to see them and play with the nephews.  We did miss one nephew and the brother-in-laws, but it was great fun!  Well worth the busy week.  More posts to come (shortly I hope, but baseball season has started - we had three game this week and it eats up about 3 1/2 hours each game - so worth it though).
