Still breathing

Silicone rocks! Yes, the ice tray made it through the crayon melting escapade with flying colours. Thank you so much for all the funny comments about yesterday's post. And just to prove it really did work - photographic evidence...

Using a microwave instead seemed a popular suggestion, but frankly those things scare me. We do own one, but I use mainly for heating the kids' cherry stone pillows. I would rather run the gauntlet of melting/spontaneous combustion - at least I can see it coming! I am a Luddite, I know.

Caroline reminded me today that I need to sew some name tapes on school clothes. Oh, and buy some tracksuit bottoms. Did this boy grow over the summer or what?

Hooray - they worked! Oh my - all that in one summer? That is craz-e.

Wow - the trays really did work out well!

And yes, I'd say the boys grew - that's amazing for just a few months. What did you feed them?
