Molly Handbag

I saw this blog a long time ago, and knew I needed this purse!  What’s not to like?  The pattern was free and very easy to follow.   I found fabric that I liked—and made it. 
I made my inside pockets the way I wanted them – for glasses, pens, extra stuff, and my card holder—I just toss cash in the whole thing, so I don’t carry a wallet.  If you need some change, just give the purse a shake!  I always put a key fob to put all those little cards so I can whip those out when needed. 

 I put the ruffle on the front and back, the pattern just had it on the front.  I love it!

Day 5 Friday!!!

Friday is parents day—we show off what we have done for the parents.  We went to Theatre in the Park to see Joseph and the Technicolor DreamCoat.  We got there early to eat and let the volcanos off.  The police even came over to watch us…  P.S.  if the volcanos are not dry by the time you paint them, they start to stink once the paint seals the wet in!!

Then on to making lanterns.  I seem to have misplaced the wire for the handles, but Mandy cut out the kids names and some stars with her Silhouette on contact paper.  Stick those on the jars, then spray with frost and peel off the contact paper and all done!

    Time to taste the goat cheese!

Then on to the show!

Day 3 -- Wednesday

Camp hazing for those who won't come to flag ceremony...
Alice the Camel has 7 Humps!...

We started the day riding bikes in the heat of the day, started the goat cheese, painted volcanos, finished t-shirts, cooked cupcakes, sewed pillows and the ever popular beaded animals!  Whew!  That’s a lot of nothing!  And don’t forget singing and chanting the whole time!

Day 2-- Tuesday!

Day 2 of Day Camp started at Kim’s house right after lunch.  We had a late day because we were going to watch goats get milked and they do that at 6 am and 6pm—and we didn’t want to start at 6am.  Anyway, we got underway, and went to another field trip to Excelsior Springs Mo.  Who knew it has 46 separate mineral springs?  We saw the water bottling plant—and the personal collections of Keith Bowen.  He has collected lots of eclectic items—something for each kid to remember.  We went to the Hall of Waters.
He led us on a tour—and a behind the scenes, also.  It was fab and we loved learning about the therapeutic baths and all and the people who came to ES  to use them—Harry S Truman and FDR among them. 

Back to Kimberly Park Farms to check out Kim’s chickens, swim and shoot guns—our version of a triathlon.  USA  USA!!

We also tried to origami it.  With less success than we would like.  The problem was that the kids that could origami were doing other things.

The food committee cooked dinner

and then we went off to see goats!  This family got goats because one of the kids-HA! wanted to have an animal, and the parents wanted the animal to be able to pay for itself!  They actually had a very hands on goat milking demo.  We learned all about keeping the goats and milking the goats, and ended the night with a cow milk and goat milk taste off.    


 Jocie—my favorite part was the goats—everything about them!  I wish I could have goats!!
Emmy—I liked swimming, the water and the goats!
Abby—Watching the milking of the goats…
Kallie—I liked the water!
Addie—Goats!! And we went to the best two houses ever!
Reed, Will and Brody wouldn’t be still long enough to answer…
