The Fresh Air Fund

What is your child looking forward to doing this summer?

Going barefoot,
spitting watermelon seeds,
blowing bubbles,
eating pie,
building sand castles,
climbing trees,
getting muddy knees,
riding bikes,
doing sparklers,
finding bugs,
catching hermit crabs,
chasing fireflies,
identifying constellations,
playing outside after dinner,
seeing if he likes butter?


Consider sharing the fun with an inner city child through The Fresh Air Fund this summer! Click on the picture of children playing in the waves in the right-hand column. love, Beth

YES! Yes to all of this. I love when things make me excited about summer. Facing an AZ summer is not something I usually find myself excited about!

Wow, what an incredible idea. I wish we lived in the country and could participate in this!

That's a wonderful idea.

In the midst of the craziness of life, remember to carve out some "you time," a little "mother culture," and make something lovely each day to nurture your own soul, and then you will have more to offer to others and prevent burn out as well. And don't forget that The Artistic Mother's Art Group can help with that. I find that the group is helping me to balance life, motherhood and being artistic.

I'm so glad you are a part of our group, and I look forward to seeing your versions of the projects we are all doing together in The Artistic Mother by Shona Cole. Please let me know if there is ever anything that I can do for you or if you ever have any questions.

May God bless your day.
