Welcome November

'November is the most disagreeable month in the whole year,’ said Margaret…. 
‘That’s the reason I was born in it,’ observed Jo.”
~Louisa May Alcott, Little Women, Chapter 15

Louisa May, born a half hour past midnight, on Nov. 29, 1832. 
Her father Bronson described her as “a very fine, fat, little creature… with a firm constitution for building up a fine character.”

On the day Louisa was born, Bronson thought deeply about what family meant to him. It tied him to the physical world. Without a family, it seemed to him, his inner wants would have become morbid,  and his affections would have been “dimmed.” He concluded that few could find happiness if they were “shut out from the Nursery of the soul.”

You can sculpt plasticine and then use it as a stamp. Brilliant. We made snails, hearts, and all kinds of imprints. Thats a two dollar project my friends. One dollar package of plasticine and one dollar stamp pad all from the dollar store.

Moment caught from our front window. They are waiting for the snow to come which does not take long around here. Little Canadian babies.

I got this game called How Things Work for school. Its actually a little above heir age level but they still love playing it.
