What-What?! Week of April 24th

Long week.  Starts again tomorrow. :/

Origami Things

Corwin with his fox puppet and swan.
So last weekend, we hit up the thrift store, and one of the things we picked up was an origami book.  I've done a couple of animals with the children, and Corwin has been very interested in it.  He's actually better at the actual paper folding part than either of the other two kids.
Saffron was excited, not that you can tell from this picture.
Ozzy was very excited, but also very blurry.
Luckily, I found that I have a ton of origami paper, so we'll be rolling in paper animals for a good long while.

Last weekend, it was actually nice enough that we ate outside all weekend.  We had the kids help us with some yardwork; we told them that we'd give them a penny for each dandelion flower they picked.  All told, they picked a total of 324 dandelion flowers -- and there was still more (!!!).  Still, seems like a good $3.24 spent.
