Anna built a birdhouse at her class after school at the Fenton Library. She is the crafty one and so I signed her up for a class that involved electronics to glitter, chemical reactions and glue.
She built a birdhouse. Then she covered it in tape and paint. She did a wonderful job, it is really cute. She ran out of the van when we got home and put it on the porch to be some birds home.
Problem is it is covered in washi tape. It is raining and snowy here. That tape will fade and fall off soon. I know that. As mom I want to quick varnish it 3 times and protect it so she doesn't get disappointed if/when it falls apart.
I want to protect her. I want to keep her safe and happy. This move has been hard, she doesn't have any close friends, the girls behave catty and mean. Her heart is grieving. She really doesn't have any connection with her old friends. I hurt for her. When we moved her cat of 3 years died. She is 12, all around bad time to be a kid. I want to save her from pain but I don't know how.

The snow came at 8 am.
I came back to snow all over.
The birds were still eating.
Soon we will get to have a fire again. I love this balancing act.
