Things Made

Above is a vegetable dragonfly Hezekiah made today in learning about cultures and Houses and Homes around the world.  A little boy in Africa was making a vegetable animal in our book today.  Hezekiah made this with Page while Maggie and I attended the Parent fellowship at Eli's school. 

His dragonfly is made from a parsnip.  Because we had parsnips for dinner the other night and we had that instead of carrots. 

Above are Eli's creations.  Eli made me a heart necklace yesterday.  He made the hearts on Sunday and this morning he brought out a piece of string and started taping the hearts to the string.  So, yeah......alright, I admit.......totally melted my heart and I wore it proudly! 

He also said, "Mommy, I want to make daddy something." 

I said, "Well, Eli what do you think he might like?" 

Eli said, "I think daddy would like a snack bag." 

So he got 4 zip lock baggies, and taped them all together.  Then he said, "I think Daddy would like a scone."  So he put a scone in one bag, then he selected other things of what was on the counter.  But then he said, "Mommy, will you make Daddy a peanut butter sandwich and put it in this bag here?" 

I said, "Of course!" 

So he gave Page his snack bag when we took Page his lunch.  It was so cute to see Eli give Page the snack bag and how proud he was of his accomplishments. 

It warms my heart that he thinks of others and one of his ways of showing his love is by making things for them, in this case us!
