MCFC Goes To Florida - Part 1 (A Sketchbook Travels Adventure)

Becky & F.W. at Logan Airport

 

One of the big events of this past summer was our trip to Orlando Florida for the 2007 FPEA (Homeschooler's) conference, and for some "relaxing" vacation time. We brought Moo-Cow, F.W. and Ramses along for the trip , and I used the occasion to bust out the sketchbook and start my "Sketchbook Travels" series. All pictures are done with pen and watercolor pencils.

 

Part 1 - The Fun Begins

BIG SPIDER!

Now that Fall is coming, I thought that I would share some of the pictures Ramses and I took this summer. There are a lot of good ones, but I'm only going to show a couple at a time. Just to warn you, most of them are weird creepy crawly things like this!

Keby said she thinks this is called a fishing spider, but I'm not sure if she's right, I didn't see any little spider sized fishing poles around. Ramses and I found this under an old board near the water and couldn't believe how creepy and big it was!

 

F.W.'s Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pancakes!

 


I can't stop thinking about F.W.'s chocolate chip oatmeal pancakes. They sound yummy. Can I have the recipe? Thank you!

O
kay Melissa, it wasn't easy, but we managed to get the recipe for you. We didn't have problems because F.W. was trying to hide the secret family recipe or anything, but because he didn't have the recipe! It turns out that this is a recipe his mom taught him and he's always just remembered it, but he remembered it as a pinch of this, a dash of that, and paw full of the other thing. He had no real measurements at all! So we sent F.W. into the MCFC test kitchens, with our master chef Moo-Cow, to work out a recipe everyone could follow. It took a lot of batches of delicious pancakes to get it right, but they finally got it down to a written recipe F.W. is happy with. Here is the outcome and we have to admit, they really are

Make Your Own Rain Stick

H
ave you ever listened to the soft drip drop of rain on your roof? Doesn’t it sometimes sound like a song? And even though I don’t like thunder, when it’s far away, it sounds like a wild drummer. Sometimes a storm can be so musical. Now you can make your own stormy music with a rain stick!

Who: F.W.

F.W. master of the flucorder

 


M.O.
: Cute and kind, F.W. has a lot of heart and a lot of patience, which he needs to be Ramses' best friend and roommate. F.W. is the only known "master" of a unique wind instrument he calls the flucorder. Its origins are mysterious, F.W.'s not even sure of them himself, but he loves the instrument and practices it whenever he gets the chance.


Most likely to be overheard saying
: "I call that piece _____ (fill in title of latest flucorder composition)"

My Favorite Foods!

 

I recently got an e-mail from Ling W. asking "What is your favorite desert?" I get that question a lot, along with “What's your favorite food?” I don’t know why people ask me those questions so often. Moo-Cow is the real cook around here, but I do cook dinner for me and Ramses almost every night, and maybe people know about that.
