Another Attempt

Ok, so I know I've started and stopped with this whole blog thing several times.  I reeeeeally want to try again, so hopefully I can keep up with it this time!  Since I last wrote, I've had 2 more kids!  We now have 4 boys, the youngest being 2 months old, so we're pretty busy.  I'm also doing a lot of painting and filling orders through my Etsy shop, Owl on a Limb Creations....please check me out!!  You know we teachers don't make a lot of money, so that's my side job (one of them, anyway!)! ;)  Summer school starts next week, so I'll be teaching for a few hours a day, three days a week for the rest of July.  I'll be posting pictures of however it is that I decide to decorate my room....still on the fence, and trying to make some things!  Here's what's been keeping us busy at the Wolfe house lately this summer...I got the original idea off of Pinterest (where else?!).  The pin had shown the pool noodles attached to a large piece of plywood, buuuuuuut, I decided to use what I had handy...the back of a bench!  Worked like a charm!  And then we added to the idea by putting funnels in the top (easier for them to pour), and different buckets at the bottom. Their favorite part was that the kiddie pool was at the bottom of one of the noodles, so they filled up their pool themselves! My favorite part?  This was a super cheap activity that kept them busy for awhile.  We already had the buckets and kiddie pool, but everything else came from Dollar Tree:  3 pool noodles ($3), the funnels ($1 for the set of 3), the zip ties to attached the noodles to the bench ($1 for a big pack)=$5 fun!!!
