This holiday weekend, we began a major architectural endeavor at our house. No, we aren't knocking out any walls or building an addition.
We are making bricks. Lots of bricks.

The girls have never done anything like this before, so I helped them quite a bit at first.

By the time we hit our seventh batch, they were doing all the measuring, pouring, mixing and molding. Thank goodness, too, because we aren't halfway done yet. Right now my only job is to somehow pry all these cute little bricks out of their molds. It is sort of like pulling 34 little gray teeth with each batch.

No, I'm not going to say what we are planning to make until I know if the project will end up in any way resembling our original goal. I like to keep my options open!
