Friday Photos

This picture was taken this week and it is just one of my favorite recent pictures of Elisabeth.

This week our "Craft Day" was really simple. Jonathan requested that we get some modeling clay. The boys had fun making things with the clay. Jonathan was very meticulous with what he made. David and Thomas would make something, "destroyed it" and then make something new.
Here is David with his Binoculars.

Here is Thomas working with the clay.

Jonathan with his creations. He made (from left to right): a horse, a cup (which has a handle on the other side), 2 spaceships, and a (ahem, ahem) candle.

Here is a picture of Elisabeth asleep in her crib. This picture is unusual because the blanket is not totally over her face. She is very attached to this particular blanket and will pull it right over her eyes to sleep.

This picture was taken today. We had 70 degree weather and the boys just loved playing outside.

As always, I'm lovin' the pictures!
Can you explain, to an uncrafty person as myself, what the difference is between modeling clay and playdough?
We should be getting the 70 degree weather tomorrow! Samantha has a soccer game - I'm so excited to be able to go and cheer her on w/o my umbrella, blanket, hat, gloves and hot coffee!!! How is the indoor soccer going? I can't help but feel that you are cheating a bit. First during text and now with soccer. This is beginning to be a habit! =}

It looks like you all had such a good week. What great pictures! The modeling clay looks so fun- AND so much less messy than paint! I'm going to get some soon!

The pictures are darling. I love Elisabeth's bedding . . . so girly and pretty. She looks so sweet.

We love clay projects too.

Looks like our weather of late. We just have no real green grass yet.

The difference between modeling clay and playdough is that clay is made into something and then it hardens and cannot be molded again. Jonathan actually wanted me to get the white clay that you mold, bake, and then paint. I didn't know that beforehand. The crayola version turned out really nice, especially for Thomas.

Thank you for the explanation of the difference between modeling clay and playdough. I honestly had no idea there was a difference or the added steps with modeling clay! It's really scary that a six year old did!

I love the pictures, as always. Your craft day is such a great idea but I find myself dreading it because of the clean up and I am not organized enough set a particular day of the week for it. Maybe I will try again and get over my hang ups.
