In a week or two we will have our longest day of the year. As of today, the sun doesn't go down until 11pm, and is coming back up by 4 am. This is a problem because it makes it hard to go to sleep at night...especially for the kids. Darwin and I have been getting to bed later as well. So, the first day of summer vacation, I helped the kids make their own sleeping masks! I have TONS of scrap fabric and they each got to pick out their own colors and textures. I already had a book with a pattern for a sleeping mask in it, so this project was "free". They all cut out their own fabric and I made the binding and pinned them together. The three older kids used the sewing machine mostly by themselves, and Isaiah sat on my lap and pushed the foot peddle to sew his. This is their finished projects!
