Kindergarten is almost over...




Plus, our Coraline is starting to get some facial features.

I am not very good with embroidery thread (mouth) but there's a first time for everything!

Coraline doll, step 1, + roses


Here is Clarice with some of my pretty Mr. Lincoln roses (rosebush was a gift from Sheri a few years ago). They bloomed so well this year for Mother's Day.


Clarice has decided that we MUST make a Coraline doll, so today we bought a poseable soft-body doll at Hobby Lobby. Clarice picked out the pretty electric blue yarn for her hair. Then we worked together on sewing the hair on to the doll. This is step 1, but I promised Clarice we would post more steps as we complete the doll. This is an education for both of us, because we have never made a doll.

Sunday afternoon in our yard


We have a total of 8 baby goslings running around our yard.

Can you find Clarice waving in this picture?
