The Pumpkin Patch 2013

Friday, October 25th, 2013

Last week I enjoyed taking the kids to the pumpkin patch. Each kid got to pick out a small pumpkin. And I had fun taking photos of these three people whom I love dearly.

Clay

Sunday, October 6th, 2013

I blogged earlier about how much fun our family has been having at Saturday Morning Discovery at The Southwest School of Art. For four Saturdays, we have enjoyed origami, collage, pastels, watercolor, clay and screen printing.

We chose to do clay every single Saturday this month. The kids loved it so much!

Screen Printing

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

The kids and I have been enjoying Saturday Morning Discovery at The Southwest School of Art. For four Saturdays, we have enjoyed origami, collage, pastels, watercolor, clay and screen printing.

Screen printing turned out to be one of our favorite activities.

Step One: sketch and cut out with an exacto knife.

Step two: Find a friendly artist to make a print on paper.

Step three: Print your design on a shirt. I love how Emmeline’s guitar turned out!

(I made a pretty cool VW bus tank, but I don’t yet have a picture to share.)

Devine Acres Farm

Friday, October 4th, 2013

I got to spend a warm Friday with Harrison and his friends at Devine Acres Farm.

We did some pumpkin painting.

We learned about farm animals.

We fed some goats.

And we washed out hands. . . several times.

We learned about the life cycle of pumpkins and how a Christmas tree farms runs.
The highlight, though, was the duck races.

It’s simple: old-fashioned water pumps + gutters + rubber ducks + kid power
= a ton of fun.

This is why I love little boys:
“This is WAY more fun than a bath!!!”
