I saved pumpkin seeds from the 2 jack-o-lanterns that we made, as well as a couple of acorn squashes that we recently ate. I searched on line and found an example of artwork using colored pumpkin seeds as leaves in a picture. Last night I spent about half and hour dying pumpkin and squash seeds red, orange, yellow and brown. I passed around hand fulls to the children, who used them to fashion a variety of colorful pictures.
Poor J stayed home on the couch, watching movies with Grandmom. She is feeling MUCH better this evening - even ate a little bit of applesauce and rice (her first solid food since Sunday breakfast.) Her temp was still up a little, and her belly still seems to be a bit tender. We will see how she feels in the morning and decide about school for tomorrow.
I am thankful this evening, for the fact that J is improved.
I continue to be amazed and thankful that both girls have adapted so well from cyber school to public school, and they continue to enjoy themselves there.
