A New Year Together

The Lupines year began mid September after a refreshing summer break.

The fall season has many challenging and interesting projects planned; Renaissance art history, solar water heaters, haunted houses, wind vanes, clay wonder houses..

Here is our first day back....

The juniors came back with some finger knitting, and those kids didnt stop for days. They each made a finger knitting rope that wound all through the house! I know this, because I kept tripping on ours.

It will be a year of woodworking for the juniors, starting with the most important (and fun!) skill of hammering nails into wood. Next week, sawing....

The seniors played a good game of basketball and here you see them working on our group project: A sit upon that each child, teen and mama will leave her mark upon. Bonnie has graciously offered to sew this quilt all together.

It is looking beautiful! (And so are our girls ;)
