Today at the homeschool group in town we had a juggling workshop. One of the parents taught everyone how to make juggling balls, and then how to juggle.

It was a really fun process, filling balloons with rice using a funnel and empty bottle.

  4. NOW they are some AWESOME juggling balls! Little tree will you give me lessons on how to juggle?

  5. We have made these balls there so much fun.

    I was wondering, the Lady in the first photo holding the baby her name wouldn't be Oshra by any chance.
    She look like a friend of mine that has moved up to your end of the world she has a little boy called Onyx? It look like him in the picture too, next to her.

    I just had to ask.......:)
