The full moon for May is named Flower Moon and it is also called Mother's Moon. This goes perfect with my theme for tonight's blog post: a Flower for Mother's day.
I received 3 gifts from my son. One of them plugs into an outlet. The other has a USB connection. The third one is a real bling bling. It blings. Really.
---It is a crystal heart pendant made out of clear tape and can be battery operated.
I will post about it later because I need to replicate it and record the process.---

cardboard, wires, plastic food container, and a lot of imagination
clear acrylic chess pieces, wires, cardboard, and creativity
This blue beauty is so thoughtful and sentimental. It is easy to see the mother and son figurines, but it represents even more, it is based on a conversation we had about power struggles and pushing buttons that I compared to a game of chess. I said: "if you make a move, I have to make a move, just doing my mom job". H a p p y M o t h e r ' s D a y.
July is full of activities all around and we have had our share too, so we missed our scheduled post, but we could not skip mentioning a special presentation coming up by Joe.
--It was a giant card holder in the shape of an owl where we advertised our programs.–
This is how we met, when he returned the owl and shared with us his love for books and creative writing. This led to wonderful writing workshops, guitar lessons, and not only did he fill in immediately as our emergency narrator replacement, but he took over the program emphasizing it with an interactive puppet show. A show that became full-blown and went on the road. This show is so concentrated that there is no other way to name it other than:
Joe's Puppet Show / Storytime Thing
It has everything, music, puppets, improvisation, storytelling, book reading, crafts, and much more. He is constantly volunteering to contribute to community literacy programs, so give his FB page a visit to check presentation dates, and don’t forget to share with your friends.
