We've started showing David how to pick Dandelions and blow on them to send the seeds flying. Blowing is a big skill in a child's life....just think of all the cool things you can do...blow bubbles, blow out candles and blow dandelions!
Here is a card I made with a new Hero Arts wood block stamp that was a "have to have" for me.
A little story about the dandelion. It is the "official" flower of the military brat. (Bet you didn't know there was an official flower!) I was a military brat...my dad was career US Army for 31 years! Although I'm glad my kids have roots in my community and have lived here pretty much all their lives I wouldn't trade my childhood for anything. We lived in lots of different places and I met people from all over the world. And it gave me the ability to walk into a room and make friends instantly! With the military brat life...if you don't jump right in and make friends right away you are likely to move before you do! LOL! Anyway, a dandelion blows in the breeze and the seeds make a "home" wherever they land. That's what the military brat does. Home is wherever we land!
Don't you just love that about a dandelion?
This dandelion paperweight was given to my mother by one of my school's reunion groups (yes, I did go to 3 different high schools...10-12th grades in Germany, Mississippi and finally graduated in Florida!).
Isn't it fabulous?
