Tackling with Jackson
This weekend I helped Jackson tackle.
Not only did he need a card for Father’s Day, but he needed to make end of the year scrap pages for the class scrap books (gifts for Jackson’s preschool teachers.)
For me, it was a tackle to venture down to my scrap desk and get out the supplies we needed, let alone accomplish the tackle! You see, before blogging took over my life, I was an avid scrapbooker. I miss it terribly – but right now my scrap area is abandoned (and quite messy!)
We had to break the tackle into three sittings to keep Jackson’s focus in tact as he had to print quite a few words on each project. (Why is it that children squirm and make such things take fifty times longer than they need to?!?) But we got all three done eventually! (Talk about simple scrapping – we kept it all very basic. Jackson doesn’t like to spend too much time on these things and I didn’t want to have it be me sitting there for an hour by myself making his projects!)
It sure was fun to do these projects together – even if getting my son to print is harder than getting a puppy to sit still! Jackson loved the coloring part of course – and he was so fond of one of the pictures he drew (the backs of the pages for the teachers had his artwork), he decided he couldn’t part with it and had to draw a new one for the project!
And yes – that is blue ink on the white tablecloth!! For some ridiculous reason, I had Jackson working on the dining room table that had a white tablecloth on it. And even more ludicrous is the fact that I didn’t even have him working on a place mat or anything to protect the tablecloth. Not a very smart move on my part! So I guess next I will be tackling trying to remove permanent ink from a white tablecloth. Any tips?
