k is for kansas

kansas turns 149 today (and no, i did not stay up until midnight to post this…i usually do a bunch of posts and schedule them for later).

butter time

our  kansas celebrations this week include making butter to eating zweiback brought by families.  its such a simple process, i don’t know why i don’t do it more often.

we used fancy local cream that came in a glass bottle, poured it in another jar and shook, shook, shook.

    I’m one of those idiots(?) who never write things down from year to year. I think it helps keep things fresh, but this post makes me want to slap my forehead. We used to make butter in class, but I’ve completely spaced it for a couple years. It’s easy, fun and AMAZING! Thank you so much for serving as my memory!

    How do you get so many ideas for activities with your children, I really am very much in love with the way you work with the children, I want a peek in your head to see how the plans are tumbling around, so I cab see I’m not the only one with a tumbling head full of ideas!!!!!
