August - IV

Beginning work on a big puzzle.

We did finally finish it much later that day, with Granny's help.

 Hammering open a geode (in a sock).

The interior was not too impressive but atleast not a total dud (like the other one we did, which was completely solid inside).

Drawing with chalk.

Be back in September!

Wheat grass!

August - I



New chair cover, completed.


Making animal silhouettes on shirts with freezer paper stencils and fabric paint.

 Zoe chose the animals we did, giraffe and cat for her shirts and kangaroo and octopus for Neva's.


Family drawing on big paper roll.

Cinnabon buns, fresh from the can. 

Another zoo trip, probably of many more to come since we just got an annual pass as a Zoe & Neva birthday gift.

 The bear is the only animal at the zoo that Zoe seems a bit scared of.  The tigers I find scarier.



Reptile room.

Zoe imitating one of the reptiles.

Porch swimming.

That's it for now.  I'll try to get on that weekly posting schedule I mentioned before, but we'll see.  It's amazing how fast a week goes by, sometimes I just can't keep up!
