Hero Arts Cards #1

Good Morning my friends!!!
I hope you had a great weekend!! We had some crazy weather here in Montana, but we did see the sunshine intermittently so that definitely brightened up our days!!!

We had a wonderful time with dad yesterday!! We were able to put in one of our square foot garden plots and finished planting one of our flower beds. It was so nice to work outside for a change. We grilled steaks in the afternoon and during the evening we had fun being storm chasers!! We saw some amazing lightning strikes and the rain was so heavy and fierce, we couldn't even hear each other talk. I think dad truly enjoyed the day!!

I wanted to share with you one of the Hero Arts Cards that I taught in my class last week.
