{ Sugar Wax }

We are blessed with hair in our family. This does not bode well for the females. Here's how we take care of it:

2 TBS brown sugar
1 TBS honey
1 TBS water

Mix in a mug and microwave on high for one minute. Remove and stir. If it doesn't thicken like wax as it cools, microwave and stir again in 30 second incremements. I had to microwave it a total of two minutes and 30 seconds until it became the correct consistency. It varies by microwave. Use a popsicle stick to spread on area to be waxed. Use strips of fabric remnants to  press over the sugar wax in the direction of hair growth. Wait about a minute and then pull against the direction of hair growth. Use a mixture of tea tree oil and carrier oil - I use jojoba oil - to sooth the skin. Do not touch the skin with your fingers to prevent infection. When we're finished, I clean and dry the strips to reuse, the sugar mixture dissolves easily in hot water.

{ Robinhood }

The kids have been doing archery for several years now. We found a great place here in Utah where the kids are taking intermediate archery. She hit a robinhood from 20 yards tonight, in the bullseye. She shoots a recurve with no sights. In order to do this, all of the conditions of her first shot had to be perfectly duplicated.

{ Too Many Pets in the House }

These chickens really need a home outside. We're almost there! We need to make a pad to put the coop on so it doesn't sink or rot, and attach a run. 

He says the chickens can stay.

{ Hmmm }

I think we have a rooster here, and he likes to watch TV with us.

{ Belle of the Ball }

Her school has been teaching her class ballroom dancing once a week in study hall. They also have programs throughout the year teaching them etiquette. So the dance was a ball with assigned partners and dance cards, using the dance skills they learned throughout the year. They ended the evening with a six course meal using their etiquette techniques. She absolutely loved it and can't wait to go again!
