  1. I love your Lego bins! Seems like there is just never enough room to display all the sets... that apple strudel looks yummmmmm!!

    1. Thank you. I'm actually hoping to tidy them up better next week

  2. Great summary of all your learning adventures! See, I would have thought shipping waste to the sun was a good idea, if only it were possible. LOL Looking forward to the apple strudel recipe! Thanks for linking up with Homeschool Highlights!

    1. I think the strudel recipe is posting on Wednesday Kym. And yes, I thought it was a bit surprising the waste to the sun idea. :)

  3. We're big bird watchers over here. I'm amazed at all the places it has led my daughter since she first got interested many years ago.

    1. we find it interesting watching the seasonal changes. This time of year and through the winter we see more nuthatches than at any other time of the year. The sparrows are always around, and in the spring we get white crested ones that seem to just pass through, staying about a week and then they are gone. Without the feeders we'd have never known.


Hi! thanks for stopping by. I love comments, it's good to talk with each other eh?
