Homework Already?

My son and I were busy today making this shirt for his Native American unit. His teacher wants him to wear this while they study Indiana's Native Americans. We started with a plain white t-shirt and then soaked it overnight with tea bags to turn it brown. After rinsing the shirt and drying it we did some snipping. The real work began as we threaded wooden beads onto the strips and this is the result! What do you think?

My oldest son had the assignment of reading the novel, "The Grapes of Wrath" over the summer. Can you believe he will have a test over it on the first day? Like anyone else, he put it off until last week. He finished it but was very disappointed with the ending (or lack thereof!) I remember reading this in school but fortunately I didn't have to read it over my summer break!

Tomorrow begins another school year for my boys. So instead of beach towels, flip flops and "Garfield" books in our entryway it will be backpacks, tennis shoes and assignment books. Change is definitely in the air!

Just me again...I LOVE the quilt! It's coming together so nicely. My daughter had to read the Odessy over the summer so I know what your son is going through! :)
