Had enough of the rain??? We haven't. We LOVE rain, especially when you could skip out early on school and do this!

One of the things that John and I strive in parenting is to have our children see that we are constantly helping people in need whether it be financial help, making a meal, or whatever else we can do. So a friend of ours in our homeschool group was moving into a new place and needed help painting a few rooms. So we dropped Soph off at my mom's and went to work.

We took a field trip to the sticker factory in Petaluma the other day and we had a great time. It's $3.00 per person, which you get that amount in a coupon to use if you spend $20.00 or more. We weren't allowed to bring our cameras onto their floor where you get a tour of, so this is all we have. We came away with plenty of free stickers that they gave out during the tour. We had to watch a 20 mins. video in the beginning, which I didn't think we would be able to finish because of Soph. She did great though, both of them did actually.

Magnus had a sample of this the other day after my bible study and was hooked. Since it was a warm day anyways, we decided to make some of our own. Our lemon tree has not produced fruit yet so we had to get our lemons from the store. This didn't taste or smell as good as Miss Lucy's. Grow your own meyer lemons everyone!!!
Look how hard he is working to juice the lemon!
1 lemon sliced
1 1/2 C of sugar
2 C of lemon juice (about 10 lemons)
7 C of water
Take the sliced lemon and add the sugar in a pitcher. Mash the heck out of it, until the sugar and lemon are in love. Add the 2 c of lemon juice, swirl, add the water, swirl again and done! There will be the leftover rinds and such from the sliced lemon-that's okay. It adds such a yummy aroma from the oils released from the rind. I hope you like it too!
