I wanted to make Halloween cards to send out to family and friends this year. So I bought some scrapbooking things for Halloween and got busy. It turned out to be a family affair. Some were made by Daniel and Dan as well! It was a fun evening to be sitting around together and make cards! Now I need to get busy with the Thanksgiving ones.
For the enrichment craft night we did place mat purses. We had a lady who makes these come in and tell us step by step how to make these. All we had to do was buy the things to make it. The purse is made from a place mat. I had some struggle with it because the material being kind if thick, but I finished it! I had some much fun that I think I'll make one for my sisters.

"We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box." -Unknown
I like this quote because I think people need to learn to live together no matter what. It shouldn't matter what religion, color, culture or gender you are. Everyone should learn to respect each other and treat them with kindness and give service. If we all did that, the world just may be a better place. And our children will have a better place to live and raise their children. Wouldn't that be a wonderful gift to give them- a world where there is respect, caring for others and service.

Daniel had a belt test for Tae Kwon Do on the 26th of September. And today he received his new belt. He is now a red belt. He has to get his red 1st and his recommendation black belt before he can test for his black belt. I know that Dan and I are very proud of him for getting this far and encourage him to continue.
