An ordinary day turned into a keepsake.
This book is about one of our days... it was just another day, now it is a keepsake and a day we will remember. :) I love it when ordinary days get highlighted.
I love the illustrations the girls drew in this book because they are of our little western town here in Turkey and there are certain landmarks and places we visit that the girls remembered and put in the pics. :)
The idea started because we were out of drawing paper...so I went and grabbed some white fabric and cut it into squares. I gave the kids some sharpies and our "Ordinary day Keepsake book" was born.
Come and take a look and read about our day.
*Isaac 'designed' the cover of the book.
*Lydia wrote and sewed on the title.
*Lydia and Autumn told the story, mommy wrote it. (just they way they told it, so there are some grammar issues. :))
*Lydia and Autty were the fab illustrators. :)
*Mommy sewed the book together. (2 months after the writing of it ;))
We have all sat together and read this book several times and the kids have looked at it a bunch on there own. It was a great project to do with my kids. Maybe we will do another someday...
