Such an early start gave us some time for morning projects. Noah and Chris went to work in the backyard, building a solar oven.

I was inside heating up the house by baking banana bread in the conventional way. It sure made the house smell good though! It's been a long time since we had any overripe bananas in this house. Our little boy has been a banana fiend, and I often found myself buying bananas in the middle of the week at least one. This craving seems to have dropped off though, so banana bread seemed like the best option.

During a little break from our projects, we did a craft project that was supposed to turn into (late) mother's day cards for our mothers (it hasn't yet, but we're still working on it).
