Since the kids were busy writing their essays, they did not have time to blog. (You will get some from them this week... Spoiler alert! Look for some discussion of how Rosie lost part of her ear).
Since we are short on written descriptions, here is some more of what went down last week in and around the Stewyurt:
Eli made cookies from scratch for our neighbors and us. Note pertaining to shirt: Eli and the rest of us are planning to see a Red Sox game at Fenway Park in May (though let the record show that he is a Giants fan).
Sophia learned about electrical circuits (as did the other kids).
Grace made a puppet for a show she will be doing about the the western trail. She also harvested the rest of her pumpkins.
Sophia is showed off where the kids take their music lessons.
We solicited donations at the grocery store for holiday food baskets.
We also collected donations as bell-ringers for the Salvation Army, but I don't have a photo of that so here is the bucket we collected the food donations in.
Sophia made a puppet, too.
