1 year

It's kind of funny, I checked the date of our first post, just to see how close we were to 1 year, and found that we started blogging exactly one year ago!
By the way, I know we have been neglecting the blog recently, but the school year is almost over, so I have hopes that we will blog much more than we do now.

I just had to photograph this amazing rainbow. The picture doesn't show its amazing brightness, or the fact that it was a double rainbow. Remind anybody of a certain song?

green school news

We (our school's "green team") ordered 100 wrap n' mats to sell at school events, partly as a fundraiser, but mostly as a way to reduce waste at lunch (we've found that most of our waste is from lunches). Anyway, the wrap n' mats arrived a few days ago and they are gorgeous!
We also have a new student welcome potluck coming up, and we plan on having our compost bin out and being used!
Not having anything to do with school, my mom's sewing machine is currently out of order(usually when it isn't working i can just clean it and everything is good, but this time it's something else) and I'm having upcycling withdrawals(jk). Luckily i've got my wonderful crochet hook and plastic bags! I'm making a new (big) bag, and I'm not sure if I should add a stripe like i did for this one. Any suggestions??
I was hoping to make this post a nice and long one, but I simply can't think of anything else to write about, so adios!
