I’m catching up. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted and we’ve been very busy in and out of the house. Here are some random photos of our home adventures.
Even though we’re not using the pool, it’s still filtering and needs to be maintained. Elijah loves to help with projects. Here he is hosing down the pool filters.
The chrysanthemums have passed so the kids trimmed them down. It’s a big job since they occupy a big portion of the front garden.
From the EcoArt book that Sadie got from the library and has used to create many fine projects comes bird cakes- a mix of meat drippings, natural peanut butter, bird seed, and corn flour (I think that’s it…). We pressed the mix into applesauce cups with a cardboard base and string run through to hang.
The birds devoured it!
A few jars from the cupboard that we keep for containers and projects- all the same size, filled 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and full with water, then colored (just for fun). These sat on the dining room table for a week with children creating tunes and analyzing tones during mealtimes.
Sadie is drawn away from recipes and toward creating her own meals and treats. On this evening, she made a soup with several different spices (quite a bit of cayenne), onion, carrot, and chrysanthemum flowers. Chris and I ate it as our soup before dinner. It was quite good!
Star Wars Legos remains fascinating as we continue to discover new tricks and characters.
Sadie is always drawing something. When she and Elijah get together, the process is involved and the results quite amazing!
