Our summer trip to Disney World is approaching fast, so soon that I pulled the Mickey shirts out of rotation to ensure that they didn’t end up in the laundry before I begin packing. And of course, I got Son Two’s Halloween costume from this year- hopefully we can find Gaston and party at the pub!
The belt drove him bananas when we Trick or Treated, but I think Gaston would tell him to suffer for his look. And I’ll bring another shirt.
I’ll have my red polo and the barrette that my oldest helped me make on Mother’s Day. I had central antlers (he uses antlers in all of his decorating, after all), and I thought the yellow would mimic the yellow bow in Gaston’s tresses.
Son One assisted me in its construction on Mother’s Day morning after he saw my draft. I might have experimented a little more with the color contrast had I been working on it alone, but my oldest thought it looked perfect. And so it was!
I did accent it a little with copper acrylic, to help define the shape. The barrette came from Dollar Tree, and the glue was my Aleene’s Tacky Glue. After I applied the glue and pressed the barrette down into it, I leaned the piece against the glue bottle for a day.
We've also been practicing finding Hidden Mickeys as we've counted down. This one was a quick find, just cardboard cut freehand and taped to the rock.
There are several books on it, but we might get those after the trip. We tend to have trouble making it to our destinations even when we're not looking for tiny circles.
Not that we're coasting to vacation (as nice as that would be!). The end of the school year is so hectic, even without an official graduate. It's been nice to have my sampler to dabble with as we watch movies and TV.
And we've been hitting the playgrounds with friends before we all start camps and traveling.
