We were able to sneak away for a few days last week to the coast and whiled we relaxed we worked on some projects for the homeschooling science fair the girls are doing. It was stormy, sunny, wet, windy, and warm—changing constantly. Awesome oregon coast weather. We love the tide pools so much and found a ton of critters to research.

I stitched on my needlepoint until I ran out hot pink and then switched to knitting a hat. Sadie started and finished a little cross-stitch by SamSarah. She loves these charts in their Pearls series because they work up fast and she gets to add a little button.
We got through book two in the Percy Jackson series and I discovered, from a library book that my 6-year-old checked out, that you can make any box cake into cookies by mixing the cake mix with 2 eggs and 1/3 cup oil or melted butter and any mix-ins you want. Trashy baking excitement! It was perfect for travel. We made spice cake mix cookies with chocolate chips. They were delicious. We came home to some garage flooding and cat barf.
