Happy Valentine’s Day!
Last night was create the Valentine box night. Lauren attends a conservation based 5th grade (WOLF) so she wanted something wolfish. We decided on a canoe, then of course, we had to figure out how we were gonna make it happen. It all worked using one small box, some construction paper, wooden chop sticks and pipe cleaners. Though she didn’t win the contest, her friends loved her boat!
They had their Valentine party this afternoon and in the morning they had a field trip to Bois D’Arc. That’s where the archery and shooting ranges are located. They also do nature based crafts. She’s one of a handful of kids that won’t shoot the guns out there. She cannot close the proper eye and she doesn’t like it covered. It’s ok. She still had a great time and made an awesome birdhouse (the kind you tack to a tree) out of wood instead.
I can’t believe how grown up she looks in this photo!!
