A Pumpkin Story!

This year we decided to let our pumpkin patch to take over the backyard. It didn't take much encouragement!

The flowers were gorgeous...

...and huge!

Eventually the pumpkins came along

as the vine kept creeping across the backyard.

It made its way across the patio where more pumpkins grew.

It wasn't long before the vine headed out the back gate!

We were glad to see some of the pumpkins ripen. Jeff gave some away to neighbours and family

and we kept a few for the verandah.

Happy Halloween!

We always enjoy being crafty at the Glanworth library, but we recently acquired a set of large blocks so that kids can enjoy another type of creativity. I love seeing this kind of challenging fun too, the building of as tall a tower as possible!

While there is building going on inside, we hope to be building on the outside soon too! It is looking very good that we will build an addition to our little library so that we are accessible to all and have the added bonus of a washroom. Fundraising is going very well! 

I'm not sure who is going to fill in our funds-to-date on this neat, booky sign, but we are getting close to reaching our goal. Yay!!

Enjoy your day,

Crafty Glanworth kids!

It's so much fun to set out a bunch of colourful materials at the little Glanworth library and see what the kids create.

I'm not sure who is cuter, our crafty girl or...

 ...her flower fairy!

This fairy is showing off some of our picture books.

 Getting lost in creativity is just the best thing.

Presenting the finished craft is fun too!

Sometimes I get a wonderful surprise and have the pleasure of seeing a project made at home. One of our crafty kids made this unicorn with the help of her grandma and brought it in to show me. How cool is that? What a terrific job!

Happy crafting all,

Judy Ann
