Painting the Moon

We're all still really liking this project! All this week Jack has been showing me more pictures he wanted printing off for his little scrap book, and sticking them in ever so carefully!

I talked with Jack and jogged his memory of what his Nana told him about watching the moon landing. As he remembered parts he wrote it down and I cut his writing out for him to stick into his scrap book, sort of in the right order. Then he went mad with sparkly planets and shiny stars, it looks so cute!

I love reading his writing! At school he is encouraged to write phonically for now so seeing how he spells things is really interesting. He writes in his accent!

 But even with the scrap book making through the week the only thing on Jack's mind is painting his planets!

Unbeknown to the kids, most evenings we've been building up the layers of papier mache on the planets. They were a bit flimsy and they had run out of interest in layers of paper and glue so we felt we had to do something so they didn't collapse under the weight of the painting. The bigger planets still need a little work, but the little water bomb moons were ready to paint!

Jack wants his moon to be red and pink with moon dust. Tom painted his green with pink dots. They could do with a layer of varnish (or glue) to stop the glitter from dropping off, but they look fab! Jack's very proud!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
