This morning’s handwork was making Eye of God and/or a woven spider web. The kids enjoyed it so much they continued to make them for most of the afternoon, especially Cyan. She has made 4 so far. All more beautiful than the last!
This is Alex’s:
Isn’t it lovely!?! I just love how he used the blue in the midst of all these drab colors.
This afternoon was dedicated to using up the last of two laundry baskets of apples we had gotten from a dear friend. I made batch after batch of applesauce. And after I was done and tired of it, Cyan took over and made yet another batch. We now have 18 quarts in the garage and more in the kitchen and still had enough left over for some for dinner tonight!
In Logan’s last workbox today was ‘make fresh apple pie with mommy’ and he just loved helping me prepare a pie for the family. We made the whole thing from scratch and fresh apples. No store bought dough or pie filling in this baby… Logan really honed his rolling pin skills!
With the left over dough he got to make his own little ‘pielette’. He just LOVED that!
As I put the kids to bed this evening I realized that even my ‘treat’ to myself tonight was apple:
Tis the season!
