Exploring and Finding Nature (Bugs)
Saturday we had a family gathering and a scout for bugs to look at. Uncle Al had this really cool gadget for the kids to see a bug up close and personal. My niece is freaking out right now because she does not want to be close to any kind of bug at all.
After being assured that the bug cannot get out curiosity gets the better of the kids and they come in for a closer look.
This really nice tool has a magnifying piece so that you can see the bug up close. This bug happens to be an insect... a red ant
Every one wants a closer look
After a closer look they all run off screaming and laughing except for one... She is not done looking yet
After they have fun looking at different insects, Uncle Al finds a spider web and teaches about spiders
They are all really interested in what Uncle Al has to say
Except the one on the right who does not want to get anywhere close to seeing what was on the spider web. It is so fun watching the world thru these sweet little eyes
So I was reading a blog by Then she made and found this really cool way to make a soup storage can holder so I thought that I would try it myself so I start with a box like this then I cut the end off of my box because my pantry doors would not close because the box was too long then I taped the end I just cut off back to the place i just cut it off of but I tucked in the ends then I cut half way down the place I just taped to make a hole that I can pull the cans from when I need one Here is the finished end of one side next on the opposite side I cut a hole in the top so that I can add new cans to the back as I buy them that way I always use the oldest first next I took scrapbook paper and covered the box
I used this spray adhesive only because I love it! rubber cement will work just fine or what ever glue you wish
and here is my finished product! Woo Hoo I did this in only one hour! not bad I am quite happy with it. see how it works.....cans in back and pull out the front
Magically hanging leaf... just kidding, can you see the spider web?
Love this picture because it captures many things

A secret re-construction of my fathers trailer! He was pleasantly surprised
It only took a little bit of Paint, new wood, some soldering, new reflectors, new electrical wiring, new studs, new tires and a weeks worth of labor, Phew.... Well worth it for the best father around
The startling white of this Hibiscus flower, gorgeous
The last bit of snow left on Mount Rose
