Looking forward to the 4th of July weekend, these posters have been on my mind. I want to teach my children about their country and what makes it great, where it came from and why it is different. (and know better myself) I love what the artist Steve Nethercott had to say about them: "In a world full of fantasy heroes and pop-stars, we should never forget the real heroes, with real courage, real strength, and real stories," I'm still trying to figure out where I would hang them, but I really want to getting some! Along with the American Hero posters, he has a set of Bible hero posters and Book of Mormon hero posters that are really awesome. You can see them all HERE.
A few of my other favorites:
I just had to send a big thank you out to the strangers that came to our rescue yesterday! Miss B is celebrating the big 1-0 this weekend and we have a little craft project planned for her party and I decided that I had just enough time before dinner to run to Hobby Lobby for supplies. We were doing good for time until we got to the car to go home and I realized that I had locked my keys in the car! And it was like one hundred and a million degrees outside! And it turned out to be a really great experience. I had left my windows cracked, so we headed back into the store to find some kind of wire to make a door-unlocking tool. A long stemmed sunflower seemed perfect, but once back out in the (aforementioned) heat I was not having much luck. After a few minutes a man came over and offered to help and he seemed to have some good ideas so I let him have a go at it and within a few minutes he did it! He confessed to having a lot of experience- not because he steals cars- but because he was a police officer! I was so thankful to him and his wife/girlfriend who asked or at leasted allowed him to help us! As I was buckleing everyone in a woman drove up and handed me a bag full of ice cold water bottles and snacks she had picked up for us while we were out there and insisted I still take them. My kids were so grateful and so happy that we had been so blessed by kind strangers. I can't wait to pay it forward next time I see someone in a similar situation. Thanks to our mystery heros!
Oh and happy birthday to my first born! She is such a great kid, I just wish she would stop growing up!
I really like to make stuff: food, cards, scrapbooks, sewing projects, crafts, etc, but finding the time to actually DO those things without neglecting my home, husband, and kids is difficult! I love Dr. Pepper with a passion, and my husband Sam too! (and I use way too many exclamation points when typing!)
