Crafting and Soccer

Last Saturday, I needed to entertain Kennedy for half the day before her parents got home. Usually, we stay at her house and watch Netflix, but I wanted to do something different and I hate most of the shows she watches so I decided to go on an adventure.

We dropped Elijah off at school Saturday morning – he takes some kind of plane-building class every Saturday morning – and then we hit the road. Kennedy loves to make crafts so I thought making crafts would be fun. We went to The Craft Factory. They provide cut-outs in so many different shapes and then there are paints, beads, feathers, Legos, pipe cleaners, yarn, paper, etc. to decorate the base. And as much as I wanted to participate (everyone can make a craft), I didn’t want to take over or influence Kennedy’s crafting so I decided to just act as her assistant. And it was fun!

I loved how Kennedy took no time in deciding what she wanted to do. She grabbed the cat base and then we looked at paints. She wanted a million paints and that scared me.

She went for a striped look. After painting, she loaded up on supplies to decorate her cat face. The kids get to use a glue gun to attach the decorations to the base.

Who doesn’t love a glue gun?! They’re so much fun! After she finished the cat, she wanted to do another one! I’m a pushover so of course I said yes. Ugh. She grabbed the cake base and got to work. Here are the finished products:

I asked if she wanted to add a nose to the cat and she said no. So the cat has eyelashes, but not a nose? Hmm…

After crafting, we stopped by an awesome bakery next door called Sarah Bellum’s Bakery and Workshop. It’s a non-profit that helps get adults with brain injury to return to work by baking!

And Kennedy loved her brownie. The perfect fuel for her soccer game. After crafting and eating, we drove halfway across the universe for her soccer game. Thankfully, it was a beautiful day and #6 was on fire. She scored a goal and ran a ton!

Ken’s parents met us at the game so I got to clock out when they showed up and that was just about the best feeling of my life. We had a great few days together and no one died!
