Work progressing...

    The other day I decided it was time to get out my things and make an owl.  I have been wanting to try making one of these for two years now and I finally got around to it!  It is turning out so cute.  The only problem is that I want it to be able to sit up.  I think I'll be putting one of those bead packs in the bottom or something.
    I bought a whole bunch of apples and spent a good amount of time making applesauce, apple pie filling and apple butter.  All of it tastes great to me, though one of the kids says the apple sauce is too sweet.  Oh well.
    There have been a few projects I have done with the kids.  I need to take more pictures of them when they happen.  We decided to get out the clay and make fossils.  The kids really liked this one.  It was so easy to go around the house and find little animals for them to smash into clay.  After coming out of the oven they were hard and then they could take off playing with them.  My plan is to take them to the sandbox at the park and bury them so they can dig them back up.  I may even make a few new ones for them to find as a surprise!
