Crafting On

Coming to the end of our first month of school, this week is a different one.  Mike's home, we've finished up our work with John Muir (more on that soon!), we're getting ready for Michaelmas, and we're looking ahead.  The weather is cooler today, and the last of the heat is gone for awhile.  It's a good time to tie up loose ends, assess what's left to be done, and buckle down for another month.


Here are dragons the children and I made, inspired by this post.  We painted half-sheets of paper and then cut them out.  I made a template based on a chalkboard drawing I saw.


Here's my planning for the afternoon.  The stories are set, but movement circles are more fluid.  We've added some that are related to Michaelmas and taken out ones that refer to harvesting and milling grain.  I'm really loving the completely blank book this year.  I'm following some of the ideas from the Christopherus planner, like circle lists and reflections on the month.

Martinmas and Math Squirrel

The Martinmas sweater for Laurel is ready for a collar and sleeves.  The math squirrel is ready for some friends.  His tail is different from the pattern.  I'll have to take pictures when I do the next one.

The Recorder Case

And lastly, Willow finished her recorder case!  She's really proud of herself, as you might imagine, and practices quite a bit these days.  We used this pattern as a starting point.

With that, it's time to get back to my planning work and see what else needs doing around here (like that is hard!).  For more crafting, visit Frontier Dreams.

My children are inspired to create some dragons after seeing yours. :)

I was inspired by the chalkboard art from Sunfield! :-)

Everything is so lovely - you always have so many great projects going. I like the dragon shapes you chose. Willow should be proud of that recorder case! :) - Stacey

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
