(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

For the last few summers, there seems to be a week or so when the passion for using the lathe is renewed, and the kids end up cranking out pens and pencils at a work station set up on our front porch.  This year Princess Bossy's visiting friend and Prince Helium both got in on the act.  Prince Helium even made pens for his brothers/groomsmen.  I, sadly, forgot to take their pictures, but caught Princess Eager in action today.
