new pet

We have a new pet. Her name is Flutterbye. She is, of course, a monarch butterfly. You see, I come from one of those science families, the kind where my mother brought home things (cats, pigs, cow eye balls, ect.) to dissect on the kitchen table. So, when we found a monarch caterpillar on some milk weed we brought it home. We let it live on its milk weed on the kitchen table, don't worry I put a tray under it to catch the tiny little poo balls, besides we outside during the summer. Anyway, the thing made its chrysalis and we were very excited when the chrysalis turned black, meaning the butterfly would soon come out. But then something went wrong. We came home on Saturday to find a butterfly with its chrysalis still attached to its butt. Joel performed surgery, he is a doctor, but Flutterbye never fully recovered. Her wings and legs do not function properly. So we are feeding her sugar water and trying not to step on her, she usually lands on the floor when she tries to fly.

smarty pants

Sometimes my children are so much smarter than me. Ellie made this painting the other day, when I asked her to sign it she figured out an easier way to write her name, LE. Maybe Joel and I should have spelled it that way, it makes more sense.

Noah ordered some Legos from Lego.com. When I explained the price of shipping and how long it would take, he said, "they should use and air plane, it would be much faster than a ship."

We adults make things so confusing. :)

here's what I've been up to...

One of my projects for this year is banner making. I was hired by the college Chapel to work with students and make banners, 20 total. Here are the first three.

I'm sorry the pictures aren't the best, my camera has been grumpy.
