In my Garden now . . . .

In my garden, no better place to be. Pulling weeds, mulching, planting it all has a component that is centering and calming. One of my favorite times is to work in the rain. What does your garden look like right now?

Westward Journey

This was a project to wrap up the Unit on Westward movement. The kids re-created the homesteads that were won in the Great Land Rush. they have spent many weeks traveling the westward trails and making choices that affect them in positive and negative ways. Each Students Homestead was quite different and they all seemed to have a good time doing it. The room smelled very sweet secondary to all the cans of frosting. These Hands on Projects really help to bring home the message. It is unfortunate that more activities like this are not available.

Index Card A Day at Daisy Yellow

Over at Daisy Yellow Tammy has put together a creative summer for everyone. Daisy Yellow is promoting do an Index Card a Day ( ICAD) not much space or time to sneak a little creativity in . I started about June 2 and have misplaced my early cards. My cards range from sketches to collage to water-colored . . . . in other wards anything goes. I do not have a lot of time most days but this has been working out well. I encourage everyone to give it a try. Daisy Yellow will give prompts weekly or you can do your own thing. My cards are a mix of both. A few prompts from Daisy yellow and then cards reflecting what is happening in our lives at that time.
