Need the following:
3 T of Sugar
1/2 C Corn Starch
2 C Cold Water
Containers with Lids
Cook over low heat until it thickens. Let cool a little and put into jars. Add few drops of dish soap to each jar. Add food coloring to each jar till you get the color you want.
I am hoping it will keep in the fridge for a couple of weeks.
We are going to have a lot of fun!
I loved this article. When I was talking with my Mom she mentioned this article. She encouraged me to read it. I would encourage you to read it as well.
Asher loves spending time with Lilia. He comes home for lunch and he plays with Lilia. She loves seeing him. I try and tell her when he is coming or if he is home. He comes in downstairs and we usually are upstairs. She runs to the stairs and meets him. When he comes home from work. They will play while I finish cooking dinner. They chase each other and wrestle. He also will help her cook on her play kitchen.
This article talks about how we can learn more about our children by playing with what they want and doing things on their level. Benefit number four in the article is amazing to think about.
Take a few minutes and read the article.

Here is a few things on the refrigerator. She went to nursery at church last week and stayed without me! The picture on the right is the one she colored two weeks ago. It talks about what we pray about. We sent last weeks picture to her birth mom. It was about how Heavenly Father loves all his children. I had that picture up as well. Lil' did a great job coloring the pictures.
She has stickers to play with and her picture of Christ we got at Nathan's wedding in Colorado.
You will notice an orange thing in the water dispenser. The orange drink cozy is to keep Lil' from getting water and dumping the water on the floor. She loves water!

Last year I found a "big" girl stroller for her at DG on sale. Christmas is coming! We are not buying her much because we have found a lot for her in the last year. It is in a box downstairs.

We were going to go to the park for play group but I did not want Lilia to get worse. Instead we have cleaned the kitchen, 4 loads of laundry, organized a few spaces, read a few stories, played with balls and ate a lot of ice pops (flavor ice).

This is a great article. I think we all can learn from this article even if we are not going on a mission. We need to talk and interact with people and not just use technology. We are not listening anymore. We are more concerned about what we are going to say.
Great article for all of us!
