We just wrapped up a unit on the Water Cycle. Living in Mexico and having clean water truly limited sparked an interest in water for my girls. We did some fun little experiments and (hopefully!) learned lots!

My friends planned a fun little field trip for the kids. We toured a local pizza shop, Pizza Rita. The kids helped make a couple pizzas, mix dough and they got to see how it all works. They were all really happy and engaged! It was cute. And then just after 10 in the morning, the kids all ate pizza and drank sodas! It was a dream come true.

We gave one of our favorite little friends a sewing experience for her 9th birthday. Together, between two afternoon playdates, we made cute little cat wallets/purses. The girls picked their fabric, embroidered the faces and helped with the sewing!

I made Maeve a second Smock Dress, this one in cotton and without sleeves for summer (the first was long sleeved and made from flannel). The fabric I used was from what I already owned. It's leftovers from a dress I made for Greta. I love this pattern. It feels so classic and sweet. I like the princess seams and big pockets. It's a simple dress, but more interesting than others. And, it comes together pretty easily!

We love having friends in the neighborhood!
