Another mostly at-home week. Yes! I think I’ve officially become a boring old woman who likes to hunker down at home under my afghan (which I technically don’t have).
Madeline worked on the letter “F” this week. She cried and moaned and despaired of ever being able to write a lowercase f. And then she wrote about twenty billion perfectly. Pretty much how it goes every week. (When is SOMEONE going to invent an eye-roll emoticon?!?)
She made tp roll fish, frozen fruit drinks, and fingerprint flowers.
She also drew this lovely fox. I told her it was a nice girl and she was all offended that I didn’t realize it was a fox. She informed that her foxes have braids. Duh, mom.
We went to a book fair in Waxahachie.
Susannah learned this week that whales have belly buttons. Okay, I learned that too. Who would have thought? I think I liked the whale study more than she did. Whales are awesome. But I don’t think I’d want to be swallowed by one or anything. Since I’m super lame and didn’t get a photo of any of her school projects this week, here are some adorable drawings she made for me one afternoon. Notice the hair; this is very Susannah-characteristic and she draws all of her females like that. Always has.
Here’s a cake I made for our church potluck. I was going to post the recipe but I never got a photo of all the cool layers inside since somebody (who shall remain nameless – I’m having to do that a lot these days) sliced off the entire side of the cake, thus ruining it’s photogenicity (just humor my word-maker-upper skills). So I’m doing the mature thing and pouting about it.
Finally, I find myself a little obsessed with mini pumpkins this year. Here’s a peek at my latest little project. Can you guess what they’re going to be?
