Watermelons for Summer ... {Frame it! Friday}

watermelon printable

It's Watermelon Season!
School is almost out for Summer vacation and I am more than ready to set aside the long days of schoolwork and trade them in for lazy summer days and picnics. I even bought my first watermelon last week and it was perfect; juicy and just a little sweet. 
This week's {Frame it! Friday} will help you start the season out right. It's great to display in your home as a fun summer decoration (and also as a reminder to pick up a watermelon, too!) Be sure to enjoy a slice for me while you're at it!  
As always, just print, frame, and enjoy this yummy printable!

Kindness Rocks Project

Kindness Rocks Project

The NJHS students (National Junior Honor Society) at my son's school hosts a Service Fair every year. Each student plans and completes a service project. They document their projects and then gather at the fair to share the results. This year my son chose to be part of the Kindness Rocks Project. Kindness rocks are rocks that have been painted and colored with motivational thoughts and left in random places for other people to find. There is the hope that each rock will bring a smile into the day of whoever is lucky enough to come across one. 
My son recruited some help from his cousins and got to work painting rocks. (this would make an awesome family night activity, or youth group activity at church!)

The rocks turned out great!

Have a "FIN"-tastic day!

Once the rocks were completed they went out into the community to distribute them. They left rocks everywhere... parks, baseball dugouts, walking trails, shuttle stations, libraries, etc.

Believe in Yourself

It was a really fun project that we hope to repeat. You can join in the fun, too.
Simply color some rocks and leave them out for others to find.
You might even check out  the hashtag: #kindnessrocksproject to see more rocks.
Rocks have been sighted all over the world. What an amazing thing to be a part of!

PS A great big thank you to my niece Jennifer for taking the pictures!

Welcome to BEE PARTY #13!
