A diary of the projects, hurdles, rewards and family life at we recorded at Wise Acres, our former homestead in Horsefly, BC. (Careers and teenagers have forced us back into the city, at least for a little while.)

From Toilet Paper Roll to Golden Butterfly
It all started when V came running out of the bathroom this morning, toilet paper roll held high in the air, Olympic torch style, yelling..."I used the last of the toilet paper!! I can make something with this!!" Such excitement...out came the paints, tissue paper, pipe cleaners, glue, scissors and anything else they could dig out of the craft cupboard.
It's Nana's birthday this week-end so everyone is thinking of gifts we can make. M. painted a lovely golden picture and told us that "Nana be so happy with this." G. made some beautiful handmade cards...
and found a lovely brooch at our local thrift store and V. created this lovely golden butterfly...
This morning when I got up I wondered, what are we going to do today? My kids never cease to amaze me with their creativity and I am so grateful that we have the lifestyle where they can come up with such great ideas and run with them.
