Drawings, Journal, Lauren, Prototype

We can add “poorly-mixed concrete” to my list of life accomplishments. The preschoolers and I been working on a little low fence at school to hang some fence buckets that can hold outdoor building materials – sticks, pinecones, etc. – and today we really got a lot done. The children ‘helped’ dig the holes a couple of weeks ago, and today we set the posts in, tacked up the cross-boards, and I filled it in with some no-mix (i.e. – ‘really hard to understand directions’) cement. I made it a bit too wet (I think), but the posts are short and are buried pretty deep, so I think we’re good.

I forgot to take a photo. Maybe tomorrow I can show you the ‘final’ product.

    Tell us about the dinosaur bones… (I can’t imagine that guy would show up in a photo!)

    I think you should put feed in those buckets. Use ’em for what they were made for. You could fill one with Cheerios, and another with pretzels. The kids could just walk up, stick their faces in, and eat. In fact, that sounds awesome! I’m going to get one of those buckets for next to my couch.

    I seem to have misplaced a few comments from earlier today. If I find them, I’ll put them back (but don’t hold your breath).
