Origami - the Japanese art of folding paper into shapes representing objects > this would be the boys' favorite new thing. I was headed to the craft store for some items to keep us entertained while couped up over the long, rainy weekend without Brad and the boys asked for Origami Paper (I didn't realize there was special paper to fold but, I found it and when we got home they went to town!).
I'm so proud of Garrett, he's always been so hard on himself when he can't get something just perfect (I have no idea where he gets that ; )) but he was just having a good time instead of stressing.
(I don't know how but I failed to get a picture of his creation)
I think all of this Origami stuff was Seth's idea in the first place. He's always been the most creative of the four boys, and LOVES to teach the others!
Seth's creation: (Garrett's was like this)
Tristen was at the computer getting step-by-step directions on how to make something special as a gift for Valentine's Day!
Tristen's creation: LOL! A secret! He even put it in an Origami gift box!
Hayden stood behind Seth with his arm around his neck while Seth folded his papers without stopping, I tried to get the candid shot off but they turned to see what I was doing before I could capture it, this turned out nice too though.
They went on like this all day! The T.V. wasn't turned on, no X-Box, no DS, and best of all
I am one blessed Momma!
