Flour Babies

Here is a photo from my "other" life, that of a midde/high school teacher.  Each year my freshmen career class has to carry around a flour baby.  These are made using a 5 pound bag of flour and the students sew the head, arms and legs using the sewing machine.  They are then required to carry the "baby" for 7 days and journal the experience.  I also have the contact me every 2 hours through the night on the weekend to get a true feel for what it would be like to have a true baby to care about.  A family photo from this year's class.
