Shelter and primitive fire-making, Valentines Day, Friends, Baking, Cookies and Shoveling Snow

We went to a homeschool program at the Damariscotta River Association  on 2.13.2012 - For part of it we went outside to build shelters.  Here is one of the participants with a shelter he is in the process of building.

Kanoa wanted to head back inside as the temperatures were VERY cold....maybe in the teens and windy.    Notice that there is no snow in this picture?  There were patches of snow and plenty of ice, but the ground is typically covered in white this time of year.

Primitive Fire Making Skills

 Li watching people attempt to make fire.

There was a table that said Do Touch with many shells and sea creatures.  The skate egg cases I have  seen before do not look like the one labeled there though.  I do think it might be incorrect.  

Li, Charles and Makana - It is always fun to hang out with friends!  We had met a couple of homeschooling families we know at this program.  Afterwards, we went to the library and then to Charles' house to play.  A fun day!  Charles was so sweet...he gave Makana, Li and Kanoa sweet valentine's day cards and a special chocolate rose for Makana.  That was such a special surprise!  We are so lucky to have such good friends!  

Our Flat Stanley package for my niece Cheney's school project.

We all put together a special place for Daddy on Valentine's Day.  'Caus we love him so much!! 

Makana hiding Kanoa in the warm laundry.

There he is!!

Li is in baking mode...finding the right sized measuring spoon.

Getting his batter ready...  He LOVES to make (and eat) various chocolate cakes and brownies...German Chocolate Cake, Sour Cream Chocolate Cake, Homemade Brownies, Storebought name it!  And it is not too shabby being able to eat some myself!!  Homemade icing too!

Found this when I was cleaning the bathroom..must be old!  Katie  wrote it a long time ago.  

Diaper Head Man....

Some pictures from Makana and Ruby's Sleepover - they love being with Ruby in person or via skype!  Lately, they all like playing Roblox together!  Li and Kana both wish they lived closer to her and look forward to visiting whenever they can!

Li wanted to earn money and was excited to go out and shovel walkways.  He earned five dollars!  Makana went along to help and got a dollar.
