Blues, on the right is for Abigail. I love these beads, they have the little flowers in them.

S'mores. Who invented these things? I don't care for them, but I wonder who decided it was a good idea to get the ooey-est, gooey-est mess going in the middle of the woods where there is no running water to clean up with? We had the pressure washer out that day, (cleaning the driveway) we considered using it to clean up the kids too. I think we will stick to just roasting 'smarshmallows'.

Yesterday, the girls and I saw a little girl fishing at the pier. Today, they wanted to do some fishing too. A stick, some ribbon, a strong beading magnet, and pipe cleaners. The ones that are not shaped like fish are the shrimp, made by Katherine. The really strong magnet picks them up because of the wire inside the pipe cleaner. They sit on the edge of the couch patiently waiting.
Ok, I cannot take credit for this. I spent one whole morning getting it right making the shaped pancakes. Abigail comes to breakfast with the cookie cutter and cuts the pancake out after it is cooked round. Who knew? I'm the idiot for doing it the hard way. Although, there is the plate of cutout scraps I had to eat.

I have been working on these file folder games for a LONG time. It may not seem like much, but I colored, cut out, glued, cut out, laminated, cut out, cut velcro, stuck, cut more velcro, stuck again, then cut out again. Because there are so many steps, I'm not done yet. I have 90 of these in various stages of completion (half are actually complete) and I'm almost out of lamination. I'm posting this for my own motivation. The good news is, I've gotten rid of the book that started all of this.
