Some teaching going on over here this evening! Caroline is doing a project for her class and she decided she wanted to make a doll of the character in her book. She came up with the sketch of how she should look, we found fabric, and now she's putting it together! I'm going to start calling her "Hilary Lang"! It is fun to watch her learn how to attach appliques and embroider. And figure out how pieces will go together for this soft sculpture!
Today Craig and I volunteered at the Junior Achievement Biztown for Caroline's Fifth Grade. It was a pretend town and all the students had careers which they had interviewed for previously. They had checkbooks and had to learn how to run a business. It was a lot of fun to see them learning about "real life"! Caroline was CEO of Planet Earth, a retail shop. She said she wanted her own shop after that! Etsy, here she comes!! All the kids did a great job today and I will volunteer again next year when Nathaniel's turn comes!
