So, a few days ago, I was visiting my favorite non-family blogger, Kelle Hampton's site. I have always loved Kelle, even though I could be her mother...well maybe a very young mother. I feel a kindred spirit in her and not only because we are mothers to children who have Down Syndrome. She has a similar view of life that I would like to incorporate more into my own--minus all the work that it must take for her to accomplish what she does:-) So there I was, scrolling along, when I saw it....OMG, Kelle had a Make-It Book or at least a page from the Make-It book, one of my all-time childhood favorites. I ran to the storage room and under old yearbooks and college papers there it was...a little worse for the wear, but still full of the same exciting images and feelings that made me want to be a homemaker--long before Pinterest! It just made me feel like Anne of Green Gables when she found her best friend Diana!
A children's classic of the 1950's and 60's complete with gender friendly role models! Girls knit--boys build birdhouses (I always wanted to build the birdhouse)
My mom helped me to put on this very same Valentine party one year!
If we buy ten copies of her book, she will have a "video chat" with us--that would be fun!
