Bluebird Houses

Today Jamie and I took the girls on a homeschool field trip to Norcross Wildlife Sanctuary. They learned about bluebirds and each student made a bluebird house.

It was a dream come true for Amelia-- being outright handed some wood, nails and a hammer! Sunny was so proud of her birdhouse she would not put it down and tried to take it into a store we stopped at. I'm not sure if she will hang it outside or in her bedroom!!
Also, today I made a cloth diaper for the first time ever! We have decided to use cloth diapers for "Junior", and I am trying my hand at making them. I cut apart two old sheets, so my only expense was velcro and elastic. Unfortunately, I won't know how well it fits until he is born in July! I plan to make about 12-15 in this small size, and then more in a larger size. This should save us quite a bit of money on disposables (if they fit him well and I don't switch over!)...since I already make my own laundry soap for almost nothing, there won't be much of a cost added for laundry- and I won't be filling trash bags with disposable diapers. We'll see how it goes...
