i love that these eleven year olds are still happy to swing from trees, play dodge ball and bounce on the trampoline falling on top of each other, and then laughing so hard at everything and anything. so the birthday girl (and us) recovered from the birthday weekend and now im in making mode. if only i could lock myself away for a month i could do so much and have a whole lot of fun. but life..well my life...isnt like that. so i will weave my making with my family and hopefully come out with some beautiful things and happy family and not exhausted me in the end.
