Our Not Very Exciting Week
Here we are with another week flown by. A little shorter than the usual week, because of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday.
Here's a model shot of the dress I made for Hannah that I showed last week. I really like this pattern. I am working on a panda outfit for Katie in the sewing room now.
This guy asked me out to dinner for no reason at all this week! It was nice to get out, just the 2 of us.
We also made it to the library again. Partly to return all of last week's videos, and partly because Brianna reserved a whole list of books on my library card, so I keep getting emails to come pick them up when they hit our local branch.
So, ages ago, we made swirly paper with shaving cream and paint. But we never did anything with it. Last week, I saw a snowman art project and I thought it might be cute to do something very similar. The snowmen are circles cut from white paper. The hats are black contact paper. The faces and "buttons" are drawn on. The snow is circles from our 1/8" hole punch. And the whole thing is held together with clear contact paper on top.
We had a great field trip to the train museum over the weekend, and I took some fun pictures of Brianna while we were out and about. This lines up perfectly with our history lessons, as we're studying the building of the transcontinental railroad right now.
I have a couple more field trips in mind that I'd like to take the kids on, but the weather is icky again, so it will have to wait a bit.
We have a craft in progress for Year of the Rooster, but it's not quite finished yet. I hope to show them next week.
If you would pray for Katie, I'd appreciate it. She's got a rather awful outbreak of molescum going. Our Little Friends have had it off and on ever since we've known them, and it looks like Katie picked it up from them.
