Geography Club - Italy Day
This week was our celebration of Italy. The kids all made pasta and gnocchi from scratch. It was a very full morning as the kids gathered in groups to make their pastas. Stephanie supplied us with some fabulous italian music to cook by and there was flour ALL over the floor. Thank goodness for brooms, is all I can say.
We love our potlucks, and lunch always takes ALOT longer on celebration days.
This batch of grated potatoes was to be our gnocchi. Thanks to my friend Rupal for bringing over the food mill at the last minute! A cheese grater just would not have cut it.

Bows and Arrows
After a very big meal, the afternoon activities take place. Here are the senior kids working out and getting ready for their Medieval Games Event in May. I was happy to see that they did not have the actual arrows yet, since they were in the middle of my playroom. Yikes!
Can you see the Robin Hood expression on Jeremy above?
