The kids were totally amazed to watch this fascinating predator take down it's prey (crickets) and eat, not only one, but two at a time. Impressive to say the least. Click here to see a photo of that process. I am sure there will be many more hours spent making observations of this mantis before he makes his away back out into the wild world of the backyard.

After sitting for most of the summer, the leg warmers came out again. It is strange but the pattern is clicking, and I made more progress this week than after weeks of knitting in the spring. It is somewhat refreshing to actually see a pattern develop and not just a mishmash of holes, which is what I feared tackling this project!
The Lego castel was a joint effort with sister and I digging though for the requested pieces, and brother doing the design and build. Hopefully I will get a go photo to share later today. It is an amazing feat of engineering.
In the kitchen the big hits of the week were Paleo pizza and scones. Kid approved and so yummy!
We have been listening to all of the usuals and a whole lot of kitty meow; since we added a new member to the family. This name is Leo and he is settling in just great!
