In My Spare Time!

When I'm not doing my "real" job, I get to help bring creativity to the classrooms! Tessa's class is reading Misty of Chincoteague, so we made this mural for their wall.


Another group of third graders is reading The Chronicles of Narnia, so I created a wardrobe for them to go through to enter their classroom.


Floridians Come in Search of Snow

Unfortunately, when Tessa's friends came after Christmas, there was no snow to be found. :( We visited some caverns instead of sledding. It was pretty neat, but just not the same.



The girls rub the wishing stone inside the cavern.

CREATIVITY RUNS IN THE FAMILY!

All the children at school had to create a collage based on a favorite Christmas carol. Tessa had fun with this project! Most children did their projects on a piece of poster board, but we chose a canvas so that it can be enjoyed for years to come.

VIEW FROM OUR FRONT PORCH

A rainbow in the sky always reminds me of the hope that we have in Christ.

Last year, the clock was added to the courthouse tower.
It is pretty neat to be able to see it from some of the rooms in our house.

AWANA DRIVE-IN NIGHT

Kelly and the other AWANA leaders planned a drive-in movie night for the first night back after Christmas vacation. Each child was supposed to create something to drive to the theater in. As you can see, some got very creative! Nate chose a pirate ship. Ross chose a race car. Tessa chose a horse-drawn sleigh--surprised? :) Our creativity ended up costing us when another family decide it would be fun to make their vehicles at our house, too! We had a great time and enjoyed the fact that we had a vacant room to make them. That will not be the case in the future.
