Corn husk dolls

So, the two day after the earthquake the girls had off from school, as school officials had to check all the schools in the school system for damage.

C6 did NOT want to go outside. I had to force both kids out to play, I suppose this isn't so unusual, actually. But once outside they did play and eventually they asked if they could harvest the corn.

The corn was way ripe, but it had never really gotten big. Because of the space it was in? lack of rain? I don't know. We had a ton of ears, they were just all ... stubby. I later tried to cook them but they'd gone all starchy and not the best.

Anyway, we stripped all the corn, and made corn husk dolls.

Q5 took the dolls I made and cut their bottoms off so they would stand up.
