About a month ago, we had some flooding in our part of the woods. Roads were closed, basements flooded, school canceled. Most were pretty down about the damage and hassle. But, the kids really make the best out of things.
Here are some pictures I took during the first week of flooding. About a week later, we got a second record storm that made the water even deeper in our back yard.
On Easter weekend, the girls spent some time helping their Nana prepare for their Auntie Heather's bridal shower.

One Saturday morning, the girls woke up ready to sew. So, much to my delight, out came the sewing machine, needles, thread, fabric...
Both Charlotte and Lily decided that little pillows would be a good project. They rolled up strips of felt to create fabric roses, and stitched them to fabric.
Lily preferred to use the machine, while Charlotte stitched by hand. Lily has become quite comfortable maneuvering the machine. She confidently presses the peddle with her foot, while feeding the fabric through the machine.
