1) I Never Saw Another Butterfly project
The Holocaust is such a tragic event to teach tweens about. Every year, I read to my students from I Never Saw Another Butterfly and then ask them to create a butterfly to honor the people who perished in the Holocaust. I love that the kids put so much work into their butterflies, and I usually end up keeping the mini memorial up for several months. I also love this quote from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, "Never again. What you do matters."
2) I Am Baker
Have you visited the website, I Am Baker? It's chock-full of amazing ideas to try, and if you are on Facebook, like her page so that you can fill your feed up with amazing works of edible art!
3) Bad Moms
I talked about watching this on Monday, and Robert and I were literally laughing out loud throughout the movie. A colleague and I were discussing millenials recently, and although I'm technically mathematically associated with the generation, I don't actually fit into the group which is basically the same as Mila Kunis' character. Her 20-something boss was impressed with her work ethic and said, "History Channel was right. You guys are the greatest generation!" :)
4) Being the bad mom
I also loved when they talked about the kids losing their games- I can totally relate! I am so happy to cheer my kids on with their sports and activities, but as a bad mom, I do find myself sometimes hoping that they don't win so we don't have to advance to finals or go to another round of games! "Oh darn, the swim meet got rained out and they're not having us make it up? Shucks!" Alright, release the momshamers on me!
5) Kids in the kitchen
I've had lots of help in the kitchen lately and am loving it! I know cooking isn't a love language, but I do feel like I show my love to friends and family best by cooking and baking for them. We are hoping to host a brunch with neighbors soon, so make sure you check in for my recipe link-up parties to share ideas and check out other blogs!
