So, that brings us to today....the boys are now 6 years old...I'll just say that I still *really* like that they do crafts at school.
But, Ben has been talking about a Webkinz blender that he saw on the internet and he wants to make for his friend "Matt" (his Webkinz dalmation). Ben found the directions on how to make this blender several weeks ago. Honestly, I thought he would forget about it. But, every few days he would mention it again. He would see an empty water bottle on the counter and mention how he needed it for his blender, then he would ask if we had any black paint....and white paint....and a box..and black foam. Since it became painfully obvious that he was not going to forget about it, I told him that we could make it on Columbus Day, since there was no school on Columbus Day. Well, today was Columbus Day. We all went to Hobby Lobby this morning to buy a piece of black foam. Then after bringing Jack to the doctor, Ben and I started working on Matt's blender. It was actually pretty fun and I thought it turned out really good! It did help that it was 75 degrees outside so, everything that involved paint could be done OUTSIDE! But, it really, really turned out nice. I'm glad Ben kept pushing for it. I also hope that "Matt" enjoys his new blender.
