We are all learning to tie knots. We got a book from the library that had 5 different knots in it. The kids know all of them now. They have had two knot learning sessions with Dad and they love to practice during the day with their little lengths of rope. David and Abigail both like the "double hitch" best. I still have 4 out of 5 to learn so I hope the kids don't mind teaching Mom!

Peanut Butter Koalas

The last couple of weeks the kids and I have been learning about Australia. Friday we made Koalas after mixing up peanut-butter clay. They were not very Koala-like, but it was a lot of fun and yummy too!

Miriam goes potty!

Today we put the little potty together. Miriam was quite excited. I sat her on it and she promptly tinkled which made mommy quite excited. Wiping is by far the most fun for her. Let's hope this is the start of great things to come!

Mommy's little helpers

In preparation for some guests this weekend I baked a cake this morning. The girls "helped" by licking the bowl and scrapper.
