My girls are amazingly creative. I am always astounded with what they come up with! Their ingenuity and imagination consistently surprises me – the have such amazing minds!

Our school work is revolving around the ancient people and the nomads and first cities. We’re also reading some Old Testament Bible stories to go along with it. They love it and are pretending to be hunter/gatherers, or making “stew” out of random foods they’ve found.

Meanwhile, MG is our entrepreneur, and so of course she has to invent something something new and different to sell. This time she is creating fake chocolate bars. They are cardboard fake chocolate wrapped in a white label and then they have the description and the price on them. Our friend who is teaching in Japan will probably get a few mailed to her in her care package. Cardboard is lighter than real candy!

A little more creativity from our wonderful friend JadenKale, who has a new design up for voting now at Threadless! Hot Night Out is a lot of fun, and it’s easy to vote: just create an account, click on “I’d buy this as a Tshirt”, and then click on the number 5. :) No need to buy anything, even. JadenKale has sent a couple care packages here, including one with an autographed shirt for BG. She’s lovely, and always makes such fun designs!
