Custom Crest For Claire

Sometimes Caleb goes through a spell of liking to design crests for shields--a throwback to our medieval year in history. He's going through one now, and he decided to design a crest for me. After asking me what colors I liked, he went off to do his thing. When he was done, he proudly showed it to me. The main heraldic elements were: a stick figure washing dishes at a sink and . . . a double decker ice cream cone. Kids and their imaginations! Where do they come up with these things?! LOL!! There was actually more room on the shield, so I guess I should be thankful he didn't include the "doing laundry/ Oreos" theme, or the "wiping bottoms/Ghirardelli dark chocolate squares" one. Also, the stick figure was not noticeably pregnant, so I am really counting my blessings!

Oh, Claire! I can always count on you (and your family) to make me laugh! This is precious!!

I also appreciated the link you included about "There's No Place Like Home." I'll probably include that link in my blog whenever I sit down to ramble about our home school efforts to date. Right now I'm too tired. :-)
