The Kofford Family relocates to Colorado after 40 years as Californians. In December of 2007, Grandma Lorraine is diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer. Sadly, she passed away on Dec. 26th, 2008 after a year long courageous battle. Follow our journey as we keep Lorraine's memory alive, and as we learn to appreciate that each day we are given, is a gift to be enjoyed!

Enrichment Friday Photos










Here are a few photos of all the fun at "Enrichment Friday!" I didn't get to take very many pictures as we were busy! With only myself and 8 little girls, photography ended up taking a back seat to hot gluing and keeping the afternoon running smoothly! The girls had a lot of fun, and it has been a neat experience for me to use my teaching skills once again! I miss being in the classroom, and being able to 'teach' at home with a small group of students is such a good way to still use those skills and have fun too! Our theme yesterday was "Thanksgiving", pilgrims, indians, fall, etc... and it is like throwing a mini birthday party with treat bags, lots of theme related activities, etc...hmmm...maybe I could extend this to teaching similar themes at the community center and opening it up to a larger group of kids! My thinking cap is on!

P.S. And for those of you who commented on being, "craft deficient" the other day, :-) I should throw a grown up craft day, and we could get together, eat lunch, and do fun activities that are user friendly just for us! I had several friends that we would do this with in our old community...especially at Christmas where we would do a yearly Christmas gift making craft! Maybe it's time to start a new tradition in Colorado! Let me know if you're interested! :-)

Oh what fun!! Those girls are so lucky to have you. I wish I lived closer... I'd certainly be interested in some grown up fun. The girls and I are making those blankets that you tie the fringe together for some foster kids around here. Then on Monday, my bible study gals are doing the same thing!! Hope we get to blanket all 1200 foster kids with love!!

Enjoy your weekend!
Hugs,
Sue

Looks like so much fun.

I'd be there for the grownups class, but live too far away. Sad.
