The other day, I was baby-sitting everyone while Mama and Daddy went out to eat. I let Leah brush and play with my hair. My hair was pretty tangly, and after a few yanks Leah told me, "You know, sometimes beauty hurts." Where did she hear that? I wondered. Then she said, "Mama told me that one time." She kept on brushing my hair, and trying to put a ponytail holder in it. She had more advice to tell. Very seriously, she said, "One hair can make a difference (pause) But I don't know what that means." She was SO funny!! Mama laughed so hard when I told her what Leah said. She said I needed to post it so we wouldn't forget. Leah is just too funny.
Yesterday I made some salt dough, which is made from flour, water and salt. You make something with it, then bake it until it is hard. You can't sculpt a masterpiece with this salt dough, but if you make something kind of flat it turns out okay. Here's what I made with the dough today. Does it look good enough to eat? Of course you can't actually eat it, although I sprinkled real cinnamon on the cinnamon rolls before they went into the oven. The icing is real too... ha,ha, it's glue. It's all for play. I will post the recipe for it later.
Also yesterday, I started croching a shawl for this bear. I think it turned out really well, although a little big. What do you think?
Well, the title of this post was going to be PICTURES!!, but I can't find my pictures!! I'll have to get Mama to help me some other time. Tomorrow we are starting school again. I hope I can remember how to do my math problems!! We are also starting back running from our two week running break. Two days ago we drove down to Jackson to my Aunt Megan and Uncle Russ's house. We spent the night with them because Daddy ran a half-marathon the next day. He did great!!!!! He was sixth in his age divison!! The race course was extremely hilly, he said. There were almost no flat places! Aunt Megan, Uncle Russ, Mama, Julie, Clay, Leah, Sam and I all got to watch the race. We got to see all the first place runners cross the finish line. They were amazing!!! Some people ran the full marathon at a pace I can't even keep up for one mile!! Anyway we are back home, looking forward to and dreading school tomorrow. Good luck to all who start back school Monday!!
