Well, I am finally able to post some pictures! yay! This month we learned a variety of cool things and I thought I would post about the ones that I actually caught on film :)
"Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study. Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life". ~Henry L. Doherty
My bestie Ronda Roo had just arrived home from a mission trip with Mission of Mercy to Dominican Republic, giving aid to the Haitian refugees and it was her birthday. It was also our summer "party" here on the hill. FLOWERS were in order for this celebration!
~Queen's Ann Lace Flowers (or some celery or another light colored flower, I imagine*fun to experiment)
~glass bottles (we used recycled bottles from drinks and mason jars)
~food coloring or dye (we used vegetable-based coloring)
~Add drops of food coloring to water in the glass bottles (about 15-20 drops)
Then we went outside to do what we do best...
Campfires, blowing bubbles, hula hooping, playing in huge cardboard boxes, harvesting from our garden, dancing to live music in the yard...
Of course, a handmade card and a new vase for the flowers were also in order
Strips of tissue paper (torn and uneven) glued with a paintbrush onto a Mason jar
Peace to you
