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!
