We are leaving tomorrow for New Jersey. Just a super quick five day adventure with the kiddos. We have to go meet the newest cousin, baby boy number six, Ian. Six boy cousins ages infant to almost 5. Oh my! Anyway...I was gathering Nahum's bag of entertainment for the car and I came across the box of art supplies from way back when (college years!) that I dug out the other day when he asked me to make him a book. I thought I had briefly seen some markers and wanted to include those with the other travel art supplies he loves! I found a bounty of goodness in the old rolling rock box! Paints! Markers! Lots of crayons, book making supplies, charcoal, pastels, puffy pen, glitter, glue, silk screening supplies! I can't believe it has been sitting, neglected in the attic for six years now! It will be a fun winter for sure...lots of time for art projects...and lots of supplies all ready for us. We have a huge bin of art stuff already but now...now, I will have to rearrange some furniture and bring in a bureau to make it easy to get to and organize!
P.S. Nahum and I had an awful day today. We could not figure out how to keep each other happy. It began with negativity and ended with negativity. I am sad for that. I am sad for my lack of patience with him today. I am thankful that tomorrow we will be able to start over. I am excited for the four of us to get in the car and enjoy each other for some pool time and relaxation. I am excited to see the older boys play. I am excited for Zev and Luke to coo and smile at each other. I am glad that I am not always such a mean mama! (the problem may have been the crap we ate today...oh yes, now that I think of it...we both needed to take more time to make ourselves feel better-we ate fruit leathers and tofutti cuties (the mint are just divine!) but not much for real food...oops! sorry sweet Nahum!
