Did I mention the girls picked up drawing books from the library? They have been drawing all sorts of horses and come up with stories for their artwork. I like the creativity but they can become fixated very quickly. I’d love to see some drawings that don’t involve a horse.
Both are making major steps in their memorization of state capitals. Lily of course, being older, is further along.
Now for the not bad; yam and chicken in the crockpot=wonderful! The man didn’t seem to like the texture of the yams, too mushy. On the subject of noms, the girls and I collected baskets of tomatoes from Haskins Family Farm so today is my first attempt at making ketchup as well as using the less than perfect ones in a pot of soup. On our way over TO the farm this weekend we passed another farm and picked up a very large pumpkin and a bushel of apples.
I spent about five minutes trying to get a good photo of this bee. He just would NOT sit still long enough, or would be under a leaf. I love bees, they are truly essential to our survival, and just fun to watch buzz around. Oh and stop by to visit Tree-Beez.
The bad-yes that is BAD. You may see my post something about the girls room being destroyed but most people assume it’s not that bad. Ta-da! My oh so amazing, brilliant children are quite insane little monsters as well. Notice that little white dot in the chair? If that’s a ghost orb I’d say it’s Grammy watching over them cleaning up. Most likely a bit of dust on my lens.
Sorry this is short and jumbled, I’m running up and down the stairs to check on my slow simmering ketchup.
