Slippery Fish

Last night we celebrated my nephew’s second birthday! My other nephew (birthday baby’s cousin) helped me make a card but we didn’t capture a good picture.

I also tried my hand at making a felt board like I had when I was a child. I

spent hours arranging animals on the board and thought he might enjoy one, too.

The fish I cut out of felt and glued the background piece to a larger cardboard frame. The accompanying song is called Slippery Fish and can be found here: http://bussongs.com/songs/slippery-fish.php

Happy 2nd birthday, A!

Welcoming a Dear Friend

Last week, I was beyond delighted to welcome one of my best friends to DC. She and I met in college but this super-talented¬†friend of mine earned a Fulbright after graduating so I hadn’t seen her in well over a year.

If you didn’t know, the white building I created out of construction paper is a replica of the Washington Monument. The grass was created out of a strip of green construction paper and attached only from the bottom so that it pops out.

And just for fun, here we are on our first dinner together in DC. I also made a gift bag of some useful and fun things one might need after moving to a new city and presented it with the card. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a good shot of it but I think she put it to good use!

Welcome to DC, L! Here’s to many adventures together in the big city!
