Tues. October 13, 2009

We haven't been doing much school lately. Basically trying to get moved into our new house and get settled.

Today we went to the Children's Museum with our friends the Millers. We had a good time.

Grandma Ann had open heart surgery today. She is doing good.

After nap today, I decided to make soft pretzels. The boys helped roll out the dough (works good on their fine motor skills). Then I shaped them into the letters of the alphabet. Logan told me what letters came next. We made all of them but Y and Z (we ran out of dough and space on our pans). The boys had a good time.

They are cooking right now, so i'm not sure how they will turn out!!!
