School Project

As part of "Science/Nature/Art," Amber and I have been working on a really neat project. During school, we've been going on Nature Walks--mostly on the Ojai Meadows Preserve trails next to Nordhoff. The goal was to find nature items (treasures, as Amber calls them) to use in making doll furniture. After several Nature Walks, we got down to the business of building doll house rooms out of cardboard boxes and only the items found on our walks. We just completed the project and I thought you'd like a peek at the finished product. Amber's creativity really shone in this project. She did all the designing; I just used the glue gun. Autumn made one house, too. It was a really fun project!

Christine,

Cool project.

You sent me here from your mom's email prayer request. We are ministers at the University of New Mexico, and have known her for quite some time--what an amazing mom you have. We'll be praying for her recovery.

My wife homeschools our kids, so we're looking forward to following your blog!

Have a great night,

Kirk
