Sorry it's so hot where you are Sonja. We are below our rain average, (our winter) by two inches. Not nearly as hot as you are though, only about 85-90. By the way I found your pics of gumnuts in the photo section :).

Hi Sonja

When I tried to open it it would only let me put it into downloads first and then when I got it from there I couldn't find any button that would let me make a quarter rotation, only let me flip it sideways....and I think I clicked on every button I could Those squares REALLY do look beaut...and sooooo many of them. You have done wonders in such a short space of time. WELL DONE!!!! The children will certainly appreciate your efforts and those of the Gumnuts come Winter time.  :))

Sonja, glad KAS is able to help. Home with 3 young ones is definitely a test for one's sanity LOL   I was a kindergarten teacher for many years [ages 3-5] and know how busy children can be!

We would love to have you more involved with the forum...when you have time :-)

Hi Sonja, I see that others have answered your question about the total number of squares.  Thanks for catching the discrepancy.   Linda

How true.  We certainly are having some odd weather, aren't we !  Our temps have been way below normal.  Snow all day yesterday and minus 18 last night.  Yet on Monday coming, they're saying we will have rain and plus 10 degrees !!
