A fun week. A full week. I hope not every week is this busy.
We built a fort from ‘craft sticks’. Yes, Little Man wielded the glue for most of the building.
Towards the end, I just let him build it himself. It has a very creative design, I must say.
He decided at one point that he didn’t have enough blocks.
We tried some ‘giant bubble solution’. It might be because I wasn’t using actual blue Dawn, but they most all popped as soon as they came off the bubble blowing device. The string-straw device didn’t work all that great, though perhaps my straws were wimpier than the ones another blogger used.
The PVC pipe made the best bubbles and was easiest to use. I knew I was keeping that short bit around for some reason!
Standing on ones hands has become a key skill to be developed in our house these days.
I finally got *both* of my sewing machines in for repairs. Though while checking them in at the store, I found that one machine didn’t have a pressure foot. So, back the next day we went to drop off the pressure foot. We had some time, so we stayed to look. I was totally eyeing up a serger and the gal offered to demonstrate it for me. Little Man wasn’t being the most cooperative, so she said to an early-teens-or-so gal to go get the box of toys. Then the gal sat down and played with Little Man while her mom, turns out, demonstrated the use of the serger. When the gal got bored, her brother stepped in and he and Little Man built trucks, trains and buildings from duplos. And I got to see a new serger in action. If you are in Waco, and are in need of sewing machine service or are wanting to buy a machine, go to the Bernina store on Waco Drive. I was very impressed with their service.
I ended up tossing the water bottle. I found a crack along the bottom, which sealed its fate. :::sigh:::
