This is the Sprout as we knew him....




And now ....



He walked into the bathroom on Sunday morning, and asked Dad, "Can you shave my head?"
I could of settled for a trim, but Sprout is very happy with his new "do".

A month ago, we gathered reeds from the roadside, beside an old church outside of Winnipeg.
They were hung to dry in our basement, and now are ready for whatever we decide to use them for...

To demonstrate, I soaked a handful and make this tiny basket.
I'm not too sure what I am going to use it for, other than a demo.
It is pretty sturdy by my standards, yet not something I would trust my children with unless I didn't mind "accidents".
It is made solely of the reeds, no glue, tape, string, etc.

 So that was the first handful, but there are several more ready to be used.  I am now just waiting on the inspiration of what to do next.

The weather was just beautiful today. 
We headed outdoors to soak it up!

 The littles had a lot of fun in the leaves.  They were perfect for piling and jumping in: they were big and crunchy.
Speedy was more interested in raking.  He even knocked on the neighbour's door and offered to rake her boulevard for her.
From our tiny, postage stamp front yard, we filled four garbage bags!  They are excited to clean up our back yard, but the large tree hanging over our lawn is still green!

Yesterday, I made a card.  I made it with stickers.  I used all colors, like black, brown, and blue, and yellow, and that's all the colors I used. I made it for Mom and Seedling.


 Today I made Squidword on a horse, and I made his house.  It was fun.  I told Seedling it was her birthday card.  But it's mom's birthday card until her birthday is done, then it will be Seedling's birthday card.

I think I am going to make more today.
