Anna had an assignment at school to make a car. It was to help the 1st graders learn about motion (push, pull, etc.) The car body was to be made out of a toilet paper tube, but the rest was up to us. We opted to purchase wheels and axels at the local hobby store. However, Aletta and Rachel wanted to make cars too. We even tried the cars out on a makeshift ramp.

This fall Sara has started to play the clarinet. However, with the move she found herself far behind her new classmates. She began to practice for at least an hour every single day and caught up. Her teacher even remarked that "if everyone practiced as much as Sara then we would be having 'fun friday' every other day!" She has since caught up and is learning to play very well.

For Leah's Birthday Cake she called upon a lady in the ward who used to make cakes professionally. They worked together for an entire afternoon to build a beautiful cake. However when they arrived home, the cake had slid in the trunk and been ruined. She was able to return the next morning (the day of the party) and rebuild it the best she could. It turned out great! The top layer was completely strawberry, the second completely vanilla, and the third completely chocolate.
