Last week we get a book from the library about a little girl who learns to do origami, and in the back of the book there are instructions for folding a butterfly. Steve read the book to Emma, then attempted to fold the butterfly. After he did it, he declared himself an "origamist" and went to Michael's to buy an origami book and paper. He's been folding all weekend, and we now have a zoo of animals inhabiting our house.
I wasn't going to talk about Scrabble here anymore because I think it's probably boring, but you're just going to have to bear with me. This morning I was gloating about winning three of the last five games, and Steve pointed out that he's probably won 97 out of the last 100. Sadly, that is pretty close to being true. However, I won again tonight! I think I must have had some sort of Scrabble enlightenment or something because I am unstoppable!
I sewed this skirt for Emma from this tutorial. She is a sucker for "spinney" things, so of course she loves it. She also picked out the fabric herself, which is always a big selling point with her. She is already asking for a matching shirt, so I'll have to see if I can come up with something.
Three days ago I decided to stop drinking iced coffee. I do love it so, but I'm worried about Noah getting caffeine every day. Since I stopped, every day when 4:00 rolls I feel like I am ready to collapse from exhaustion. That probably means I need to start going to bed earlier, so even though now would be a great time for me to go downstairs and work on a shirt for Emma, I'm going to go to bed. Blah.
