We worked on caves and lighthouses some more today.  I made some playdough.  I will include the recipe.  This is the BEST playdough.  It doesn’t get stuck in the carpet like the commercial stuff does.  Allie made a cave, complete with stalagmites, stalactites and flowstone.  We read some books about bats and Allie colored a bat. David "colored" a picture.  Only ate a few crayons.  It seems that he’s going to be right handed.  We will watch and see. 

Our garden is coming along well.  We have some green tomatoes out there!  We have lots of tomato plants, some corn, peppers (something keeps eating them), watermelon, zucchini, lettuce and green beans.  So far this is the best garden we have had.  We also have a bed of flowers.  These are doing well too!  I have also revived most of the house plants!  So many living things to take care of!!!!!

We have 9 yellow puppies right now.  They are about 3 weeks old.  They are SOOO cute and chubby!  They are beginning to take over the laundry room!

Play dough

2c flour, 1c salt, 1t cream of tartar, 2T oil, 1t food coloring (optional), 2c water

In a saucepan, combine all ingredients, blend well.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the dough leaves the sides of the pan.  Turn out on a work surface and knead for a few minutes.  Keep in a ziploc bag when not using.

  1. Sounds like you've had a very fun day there… playdough is alway a hit with us!!! Your lab Ian looks so friendly. Once we move across state, we will most likely get a dog. Since I am absolutely no good at enduring puppyhood, we will probably look to get an adult dog who loves kids, water, and woods. Wish Ian was closer to East Texas. Oh well… I'm sure God will lead us to the right canine addition when His timing is right. Blessings! :)Michelle
