daydreamers please wake up
maura @ 9:10 pm
This year Gus’s school camping trip was moved up to the fall, so we are in the midst of both the read-a-thon (to raise money for the trip) and the no-screens time (this year it’s 12 looooong days!). It’s kind of bummer timing because Gus + Jonathan were really getting into playing Minecraft and Gus + I have been playing Professor Layton & the Curious Village, but it’s not the end of the world, I guess.
Mostly things have been fine in no-videogame land, though I can’t say that I’m any more fond of it now than I was last year. We’ve had plenty to do this weekend: fencing, Apple Fest at his school, brunch w/a pal, seeing the stick houses at the gardens, going for a bike ride, and (of course) reading. It was perfect weather this weekend, too — all breezy and sunny and fresh. So nice to be wearing sweaters again!
Yesterday Gus spent a long time working with sculpey. And here’s what he made:
My kid is awesome.

I know, so cute! He spent ages rolling the beads and poking holes in them with a toothpick, just like a little Neolithic kid w/clay. :)
Sculpy bling!!! Love it!
I’m wearing it today! The letters kind of clump together, but that’s okay.

Child jewelry is the best! And it even has your name on it. Sweet.
