We had a great time at our home school today. Everyone woke up early so we went out and picked the last of the Spring blackberries. We only got enough to make blackberry waffles, but they were good! (I was very good and only tasted them. I am determined to drop some of the weight I have gained over the last couple of years.) We finished home school by painting the toy wheels we bought the other day. We plan to turn them into toy wheel spindles over the next few days! In this picture Gregory is still working out exactly what he is trying to paint on his wheel.
We had a great time painting our toy wheels. Naturally we had to apply some glow in the dark paint. The rest of our paints were bright neon that are supposed to glow under black lights. We also have some fish stickers to apply tomorrow. Gabrielle painted her spindle with a very abstract design. The outfit she is wearing is one I made for her (tee shirt and shorts in blues, fuscia and white with a nice embroidary working its way over her left shoulder) and I was glad very little paint ended up on it.
