I'm playing along with Mrs. Matlock again and joining her for Alphebe-Thursday! Check out her site to see who else is playing!
Today is all about he letter O.
OH my gosh it's been a busy week! More field trips and some scrapbooking fun too!
Tuesday was a trip to the Bee Keeper with Joey. OH, was it interesting! I bought some hOney too. YUM YUM! Did you know that worker bees are all females? And they do ALL the work?! (Hence the name!) And the Drones are all males...They don't do any work and can't even feed themselves. They are just there to mate with the queen. Hmmm...
Here are Joey and his friends checking out the bees.
The honey we bought from the bee keeper.
Wednesday was a field trip to Venice with Jenny! As if I haven't been there ENOUGH times! I LOVE it! This time we took a boat, and another boat to the island of BuranO. They make lace there and all the houses are painted in bright colors. OH so pretty! We then took another bOat to the island of MuranO. They make glass on this island. OH, we had a good time there too, but it was OH so hot in the glass factory! Back on another boat to Venice. We had free time here and stopped for gelatO, not once, but twice! :)

Saw this on the boat ride to Burano. Wonder what it used to be?
Colorful houses in Burano.
Jenny and the other kids sat in this piazza for a while drawing pictures of things they saw.
I just thought this was a really neat little "street". See the man cleaning the windows and the lady hanging her laundry? LOVE it!
This lady is making lace on the island of BuranO.
On Murano, this man, Giorgio, has been working at the factory for 50 years. (He's 72) He made this vase right in front of us. Very cool.
This is Giorgio making a horse.
Today I got to scrap with friends. Actually, I made cards, but still OH so fun!
