Anne was the first to arrive. She flew in from Colorado on Wednesday night. JinJIn was a trooper and went to pick her up at the airport. She even carried a little sign to let Anne know who her chauffeur for the evening was.
When she arrived at the house, Mary Allison was still busy making my 162 page slideshow all cutesy and all! Bless her little heart. She does love her stepmom! And Ellie and Anne made little art projects of their own.
Tonya came over to help me with an art project that we'll actually be doing on Saturday. We have TWELVE projects to get done, with corresponding studies in 12 area of personal growth that can be implemented immediately to make our lives richer and fuller.
After our "study" on ATTITUDE, we made a canvas to support the commitment we made to our selves regarding attitude.
Everyone was asked to have a favorite quote to help them remember this weekend and the changes we all intend to make immediately in our lives. We resolved to find a postive ally, establish positive friends, and see the best in everyone as well as generally be more grateful. It was a really awesome discussion.
We used a Silhouette for our letters and ripped up magazines/ catalogs for our textural backgrounds.
And then came PRIORITIES. We made fabric cuffs to wear and remember the commitments we made regarding putting first things first, delegating those things that others can do just as well, and staying in our strength zones.
I think all in all, it was a hugely successful day. And this is just Thursday!! We still have a very full Friday and Saturday!!
We'll be discussing HEALTH, FAMILY, COMMITMENT, RELATIONSHIPS, GENEROSITY, FAITH, VALUES, and a few more. Doesn't that sound exciting?! I'll keep you updated. We're upstairs watching a movie together. Good bonding goin on in this girl world!!
