7 years ago, our family of 7 moved to a small home on the prairie. Our goals were lofty - to live frugally, become more self reliant, grow as much of our food as we could (sourcing the rest locally), and in general, learn to live in a more sustainable way. In an exciting twist of life events, we recently moved "home" to the coast and are adapting our lives and goals to a completely different climate and landscape. Join us as we continue on our journey!

This post is mainly for the benefit of our family living in BC, so kindly bear with me :)
Our three youngest children took art classes from a fellow homeschooling parent who has a teaching degree with a minor in Art. She herself is an talented artist and she did a fantastic job teaching the kids various techniques. It was a challenge for her as the class had students from 6-14, so the ability (and patience) levels were all over the map, but she pulled it off! The kids created a massive array of artwork in 6 months - this is only a little bit of what they produced. Sparkling apple juice (in champagne flutes!) and a cheese platter with fruit made it all seem very "artsy" as we walked around appreciating their semester's work. The kids loved it!
This computer mouse was turned into a "mouse" with a tail in the sculpture lesson.
The kids were taught some photography skills and they took great pictures!
All in all a great experience for the kids from the first lesson to the Art Show. Thank you Dana! XO
