Joelle recently had her first birthday.  We held a little party at Nana's house.  Everyone had an enjoyable time.   This picture shows her new dress that Nana gave her as a birthday gift.  Joey says, "Finally, some new clothes that are not hand-me-downs!"


Below is a picture of her Strawberry Shortcake Cake and a few gifts.


Kasi and I are still studying birds for our science.  Recently, we learned about the different types of feathers that birds have.  After the lesson, we made a quill pen from one of our turkey feathers.  Kasi thought that was cool, to write with a feather.
