This month I will participate in the Slice of Life Challenge!
My goal is to Write. Share. Give. each & every day of March.

Daughter-the-eldest has a history project due Wednesday. It is a multi-part project that includes researching various waves of immigration into Texas, learning about specific cultures, creating a diary as if she was the person coming over, making a dish from her assigned culture, and inserting a small family tree.
It is a really cool project.
It required a trip to our Hobby Lobby this evening to get all the supplies to make a creative "diary". She has a very specific and usually not cheap vision for most projects like this. I can't complain too much--she gets that from me. We spent two hours in that place with her excitedly gathering just the right supplies---and with me attempting to temper her a tinge so as not to spend down to the last dime in the coffers.
While there, I found artist card packs on clearance. I bought several packs to fulfill one of my latest creative visions--one I'll share in another post. I'm doing my best to make time for creating again. I am a better me when I dabble in the creative. I am not as good about making time for these pursuits during the school year as I am during the summer months, but I'm a work in progress.
