Aunt Jennifer taught our homeschool group two painting classes where we learned two different painting techniques. The first technique we learned was to make lines on the canvas with caulking, and then we painting a pumpkin giving it a 3-D effect on the canvas. The second technique we learned was to put masking tape on canvas, then paint with dark water colors, sprinkle salt on, remove tape and add details, the salt looks like it's snowing on the pic. I had a lot of fun painting. Aunt Jennifer is an excellent teacher as always does a great job, Thanks Aunt Jen.  


    Mom made some snacks that were related to painting.

  After the class Anna and I got inspired to paint so we did. I   think we should start our own  art studio. Just kidding!



Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, with the leaves changing their colors, going to football games, and hunting season just to name a few.

Our family has been enjoying the last few days of nice warm weather by going on some picnics. Zoe prepared a picnic first and she made us tuna sandwiches, salad in a jar and an amazing strawberry short cake. Then a few days later, I prepared a picnic of chicken wraps, chips, vegetable, fruit cups, and peanut butter cooks.   


This year Zoe, Lincoln and I went to two football games with our friends. We got to watch two boys from our church on opposing teams play each other, it was cold and rainy, but worth it.  

Bethany got her mentor hunting license, which was a real thrill for her. Hopefully she will get a deer this year.
