*introduce with a short story,

i told the story of both my pregnancy with evyn (our youngest) & her birth. aydin was an a very amazing part of that journey...he knew i was pregnant before i did, he was 3 days off with his his estimation of her birth date, & he attended her birth. that is a very special memory that we share & i wanted to relive it all with him today...

the turmeric & the cocoa (yummy!) both turned our great. the turmeric we tried twice, but the color wasn't as bright as pictured & it was a bit grittier than the the two.

we made a list on the board of words that begin with 'f', then aydin chose two to model with the clay...
