Today Alycia did some sewing. At our homeschooling group, we will be having a little market day, where the children will make some items to sell. Today I taught Alycia how to make some marble bags. I was very strict with her, as I believe you should do your best, and no one will buy her items if they are sloppy! So we spent a lot of time unpicking….ugh! I nearly gave up, we even saw some tears, but….she perservered, and looked satisfied by the job once finished. She made 10, and it was all by herself.. I thought that it might be a good idea to make up a little name for her, so together we choose…..”Little Rubies” after all she is a little woman in training! (based on Proverbs 31)
Do you remember Jared’s pride and joy? His special rose…well guess who else thought it was lovely? Opps..
Lachlan went with Jared today to work in the library. What a wonderful experience it is to work along side their dad, being useful, and gaining skills for the future.
