skill-building

It is GREAT having creative children.  I am never really sure what they are going to come up with next.  From mud houses, doll clothing, weapons, to even SCARS that looks real!
 
The other day Amory came downstairs after giving herself a scar.  I tried not to react because she seemed so calm about it.  After a minute or so, she told me that she had made it, and not gotten it, and that it wasn' real.
 
Apparently Maine, the youngest girl, and the PSYCHOTIC creative one, had a small scracth on her forehead.  She decided to use some lipstick, lip balm, and some polish to make the scratch larger and more noticeable.  Why, I'll never know.  But the creative part is fun to watch.  Macy ended up going to school with the scar to show her friends 
 Since that night they have been making different types of scars on their faces.  Ones that look like a clawed animals have scratched them.
 And sword slashed marks as well.
 Including deep cut lacerations.
I kind-of shake my head a little at it.  They call it skill-building!
