Just taking a few minutes this morning to high-light our last couple of days.
~Thursday, Jon & Michael went over to Mason's to sahrpen our chainsaw chains. So thankful for mentors like Mason in my boys' lives. That are willing & actually enjoy spending time with them & teaching them these everyday skills that will really benefit them in their lives. Not to mention the stories & rich history they impart from their lifetime experiences. Such a treasure!
|~Sunday--Check out that expression! Charlie looks like, 'What the heck? Did I really lay that egg?!'|
|Jon had come up from the chicken pen with a pail of fresh eggs & well, just being Jon.....he came in here & tucked an egg right in the crook of Charlie's tail. It was so funny. He kept turning around & sniffing at it.....trying to figure it out.|
~And lastly.....remember my post from the other day where the boys were making their twisty candles. This was Jon's masterpiece.....made out of 4 separate candles. It actually was the 'ickiest-looking' of them all...simply for the fact that he had to actually use a match & melt them together....thus all the melty blackness. Well, I was getting ready to toss the candles out & Jon said I couldn't toss this one. I MUST save it.....and save it, I will now......after my child's reasoning. When I said it was kind of black & icky-looking he said to me, 'Well, the cross wasn't pretty, was it?' Wow! Shut my mouth! How's THAT for an unschooling moment?!
