Mowgli has been taking art and crafts classes and loves them. They've made mosaic mirrors, fish kites for Boys' Day, block prints, etc. This is his bird bath. At the beach he dug a hole in the sand, poured the plaster, added shells and a bird perch, and ouila!
I'm a politically conservative, tree-hugging, pro-nuclear power, recycling, homeschooling, vegan mom. Phew! I love this country and feel blessed to be an American. I admire our founders and wish I had only a portion of the bravery, intelligence, and foresight they displayed. I have a very extended family and I love them all - even the crazy Italians who think they're the Sopranos. I'm married to the best guy in the world!! I have a great job and work with and for some of the most wonderful people you could ever meet. I wanted so badly to be Pippi Longstocking when I was a little girl. She had an Apaloosa and a monkey, a chest of gold, her dad was a pirate, and she was the strongest girl in the world. If I couldn't be her I wanted to be a mermaid or an otter. I am particularly aggravated by people who wear Che Guevara t-shirts as if he is a hero. Drives me nuts. He was a ruthless executioner.
