A Book A Craft, And a Plate with Kate

I'm Baaaack.

The DSL connection has been restored,my sanity is still hanging by a thread,

but I have decided to just jump back in and blog. lol

I hope there is still someone out there reading...I guess we'll see.

This week's reading club selection is...

Now, I know some of the boys might find this book a bit "girlie",

but even if they don't care for the book, make the ice cream..

if not strawberry..another flavor. Just do it.

It's summer, and the memory will stay with them all of their days.

I promise you.

The Craft...

watercolor painting

(see below for an alternative for young kids)

If the boys find this too "girly" as well,

how about taking them outside to do their watercolors

of the bull frogs and such?

The Plate..

Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream

Please don't get overwhelmed, if you've never done it before,trust me,

it is easy. I do can you, don't believe me?

I have links...

Still not buying my ideas? Go buy some, serve it up and enjoy!

Really this is supposed to be's not a test of wills,

it's NOT a competition.

If you join in please come back on Wednesday, when I will have a

lovely link for you so we can all ooh and aah together at how different

the same process can turn out for each family.

Legal Disclaimer...I am NOT a professional..please try this at home!!

Because I was unable to be here last week for the reading club, I give you another craft idea.

Please come back Monday, when I will have a product review and a GIVEAWAY!!!!

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
