I have tested several possible ornaments for this year and I have made a decision. I will be making the house ornaments.
Yesterday I cut out all the house pieces and started assembling them.
Instead of putting a number on the back of each house, I am putting the recipient's name, the year and my initials.
I found out yesterday that Parker's class is having another Market Day next Friday. I wonder when the note is going to come home about this? Grrr! Luckily, Parker and I have already planned our craft and have all the key ingredients already. We are going to make fire flies. We decided this last school year when we thought there was going to be a third Market Day. The third one didn't happen in 2nd grade so we just saved all the stuff since he was going to be with the same teacher this year.
I have made a little more progress on my Strata project.
This is likely to be as far as I get with this for a while. I plan to be making fire flies this weekend and finishing the ornaments if there is time and energy left over after the fire flies.
