Mama Knits

I finished up the girls' Easter knits with no time to spare, truly. I was up until 5am Easter morning, finishing up River's bonnet and knitting and sewing (from start to finish) Zoe's dress. But so worth it as she was absolutely thrilled with it.

And not for Easter but my new favorite baby hat, none the less...... River's Pilot Hat.

Is she not just yummy?

Here are my outside pics for today. We did go out yesterday but my camera was MIA. Have you gotten your dose of sun today?

The Great Outside

I must admit, I've never really been much of an "outside person". Dirt, prickly grass, bugs... Not to mention I burn quite easily. My kiddos, on the other hand, would live out of doors if I would let them. But I am trying, I really am. I don't want them to grow up disconnected from nature and I don't want to be either.
I ran across this post today. Which led me here, and here. Children and Nature Awareness Month. I am grateful for this. A needed reminder to go outside! So we are participating in the challenge and will be getting out every day and posting one picture. Will you take the challenge?

Right Now

Spending time in the sun with my three girls. Soaking up the warmth and vitamin D.

Trying to remember this everyday;
"Laugh with your children. Get enough sleep. Accept help when you are offered it – ask for help when you are not. Love yourself where you are right now and forgive yourself for past mistakes. Feed your spiritual self. Always remember how very important the work you are doing is and how very important you are to this world. The work we do with our children truly can change the world around us."

And sewing, sewing and sewing more diapers. That is, when I'm not knitting diapers.

Happy weekend and happy Easter!
