Betsy

Betsy was my great aunt’s doll. Aunt Bonnie was given Betsy when she was three or four. It was her only doll. 

Betsy needed a new home.   Aunt Bonnie gave her to me. She has a few feed sack dresses that Aunt Bonnie’s Mom made and a pink jacket with a matching pink bonnet.

Megan enjoys playing with Betsy. She has to be careful because the doll is over 70 years old and very fragile.

Betsy now is in a basket with the rest of my doll collection.  She is probably my favorite because she is the oldest and she has a very special story for me.

 

 

Kayak with Friends

This weekend we went kayaking with some friends. I really enjoyed it!  My favorite part was going under the bridges.  Some of them you could feel the cars going over.

I hope that we can go kayaking again this summer! Thank you Evie and Pappa Wood for taking us!

Megan’s Soccer

Megan’s soccer season is over. She did very well. Megan was a great defender. She made several goals, and helped some of the other girls make some.  She also enjoyed learning to be goalie.

Bread

We found a super easy bread recipe that we have been experimenting with. You mix together 3 cups flour, 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp yeast and 1.5 cups water. Mix it well and then let set for 8-18 hours.  Heat your oven to 450 degrees.  Put a dutch oven in the oven with the lid on and warm up for 30 minutes. Place dough on parchment paper, add flour if needed!  Let rest while oven warms up.  Bake in dutch oven for 45 minutes with the lid on.  Then take off and let cook another 10 minutes or until golden brown.

We have tried this recipe with 1/4 cup sour dough starter and it turned out excellent.  Today I added 1 cup shredded cheese and it looks great also!
