I am REALLY excited about the family t-shirts we're making for Aspen Grove. When I was taking family science classes in college, we learned that building family unity helps children feel connected to their parents and siblings (and helps them not look for acceptance elsewhere, in situations that might not be beneficial to them).
Even though we've tried to have fun family traditions over the past several years, I've been mostly in "survival mode," so I haven't had the frame of mind to make something like family t-shirts.
So here are the templates we just made. We're printing them onto Avery fabric transfer paper and ironing them onto white t-shirts this afternoon. The children are as giddy with excitement as I am.
First, this is the template for me and the children:
And now...here is one for Eric. He thinks our family mission statement is kind of crazy, so I told him I'd make a special shirt just for him!
Oh, we are going to have some fun.
