Cars with Wings

Mom and I worked on this project the other day. I want to make another one today. Mom said that maybe we can get to it! My favorite part of this one is the set of wings on top! (It's a macoroni box that we painted green!)

This is the art project my mom and I worked on this past Monday afternoon. Actually, Mom did her own art. I did this one completely on my own! It was so fun to paint a picture and have Mom and Dad be so proud of me!
I took my inspiration from SplashAnimals.com because I saw them paint at the San Diego Zoo while I was visiting my cousins.

PJ Bottoms

The shirt, $3 from Goodwill.Pattern pieces made from existing pj bottoms, traced front and back. Pieces cut for the front and back. I usually use the side seam of the shirt for shorts, but these are a bit too long for that, so I had to sew up the sides on these.

All done except the waist. I made sure to iron my seams all flat. Dana, from dana-made-it.com gave this great tip! They look so professional. I love these. They are bit big in the waist for my son, but he is growing so fast, no doubt they will fit him before winter time is over!

Kindergarten First

I made this boat in my class today! It floats, see! One kid in class; his boat fell over; couldn't float. Mine floated all around!

Must be a Boy Thing

Nick found a katydid the other day and tried to catch it. He missed. But the next day, Daddy was able to nab him! Nick has been having so much fun finding food and messing with the poor thing. It's still alive so that's a good thing. Might let it go this weekend.
